​Physics/Engineering Dual-Degree Program

Your engineering career starts here.

Lay the foundation for a career in biomedical, civil, electrical, industrial, materials or mechanical engineering when you study physics at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

UW-Stevens Point Dual-Degree Program Course Requirements

  • Complete all requirements of UW-Stevens Point's General Education Program for the physics B.S. major. UW-Milwaukee accepts UW-Stevens Point credits in lieu of its own general education requirements for students.
  • Complete a core set of courses in physics, mathematics and chemistry. Each course satisfies a requirement for physics, engineering or both degrees.
  • Complete two elective upper-level courses in physics, in addition to the core courses. Note: Whether elective courses will satisfy a student’s future engineering requirements is dependent upon the specific elective courses and the specific engineering program to which the student is admitted at UW-Milwaukee.
  • UW-Stevens Point students who meet course requirements with a GPA of 2.5 or higher will be admitted to an engineering program at UW-Milwaukee.


UW-Milwaukee Dual-Degree Program Course Requirements

  • Complete remaining core engineering courses required for respective engineering degree.
  • When a minimum of 30 credits of required core engineering courses is completed, students may submit a UW-Milwaukee transcript to UW-Stevens Point for credit transfer. UW-Stevens Point accepts 30 credits of core engineering courses completed at UW-Milwaukee to fulfill the remaining requirements for the physics B.S. major and bachelor’s degree.


Dual-Degree Program Timeline

Students may earn both a Bachelor of Science degree with a physics major from UW-Stevens Point and a Bachelor of Science degree with an engineering major from UW-Milwaukee in a total time of five years for both degrees. Approximately three years (roughly 90-95 credits) of the program are spent at UW-Stevens Point and approximately two years (roughly 60 credits) at UW-Milwaukee.

Note: The start of the five-year timeline corresponds with enrollment in MATH 120 (Calculus I) at UW-Stevens Point. There are many variables that affect the time to degree for each individual student.
