Wayland has dual degree programs with other colleges in the areas of engineering and computer science.

In essence, a student spends three years at Wayland taking mathematics, science, and core requirements. Along with some summer work, the final two years to two and a half years are spent at an Engineering school (like West Texas A&M or Texas Tech) taking engineering/computer science classes. Enough hours from the Engineering school are transferred to Wayland to allow a student to obtain a B.S. in mathematics (with a minor in engineering or computer sciences from Wayland) at the same time as their B.S. in a specific field of engineering (civil, electrical, etc.) or computer science from the other university.

Engineering is a five-year course of study and this program gives an attractive way to receive two degrees while completing most core and mathematics courses in a small college setting. Because this is a dual degree program, the degree from Wayland must be completed in the same year and term as the degree from the other university.

Three hours from

Courses to be Completed at Texas Tech University

Texas Tech may require core curriculum classes not covered by Wayland’s core curriculum. If a student has not completed two years of a single foreign language in high school, at least two semesters of a single foreign language at the first-year college level is required. Choose from either engineering or computer science.


Professional engineering courses depend upon the type of engineering chosen, and can range from 55 to 75 hours. Taking courses in the summer at Texas Tech during the time courses are being taken at Wayland is recommended.

Computer Science

Approximately 60 hours of computer science courses, and three hours of electrical engineering courses.
