McDaniel College President Roger N. Casey along with Rosalie Mince, vice president for Academic and Student Affairs at Carroll Community College, and Ron Laue, assistant dean of the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, signed memorandums of understanding benefiting students interested in engineering careers during a ceremony held Oct. 16 at McDaniel.
These new articulation agreements provide seamless pathways for Carroll students who are earning the associate's degree in Engineering to transfer and complete their bachelor's degrees in Physics with a specialization in Engineering at McDaniel, as well as for McDaniel students who are earning the bachelor's degree in Physics with a specialization in Engineering to enroll at WashU. McDaniel students have the option to complete a second degree, either a bachelor's or master's, in Biomedical, Chemical, Computer, Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, or Systems Science and Engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering at WashU.
McDaniel students can choose to spend three or four years at the college before entering the dual-degree program at WashU where they can receive a second bachelor's degree in an engineering field, a second bachelor's degree, as well as a master's degree in Engineering, or enroll in an Engineering master's program after completing a bachelor's degree in Physics at McDaniel.
According to President Casey, "Our new engineering track at McDaniel is a direct result of the growing interest among our current and prospective students to enter engineering careers. We are delighted to be able to partner with both Carroll and WashU to provide students with the option to earn up to three degrees, including a bachelor's degree from McDaniel, on one unified career pathway."
