Mathematics Major with Engineering or Computer Science, Minor

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.

Courses to be Completed at West Texas A&M University or Texas Tech University

The Engineering school may require core curriculum classes not covered by Wayland’s core. See the official Degree Plan for details. Taking courses in the summer during the time courses are being taken at Wayland is recommended. Number of hours in the major depends upon the major chosen (computer science or type of engineering), and can range from 55 to 75 hours.
