Engineers: Dual Degree Plan at WSU & ESU



     WICHITA - Two Kansas universities have announced a cooperative agreement to try to expand the number of engineers in Kansas.
     Wichita State University President John Bardo and Emporia State President Michael Shonrock signed an agreement this week creating a dual degree.
     Students can spend three years taking courses at Emporia State before transferring to Wichita State for two more years of study in the College of Engineering. When they graduate, they will have two degrees, one from ESU in math or physics, and one from WSU in some type of engineering.
     Dr. Bardo called the program "absolutely critical" to Kansas; he said, "We know that the higher the percentage of engineers in the workforce, the more likely it is you're going to have the kind of innovation that actually makes a difference to a state in terms of their ability to compete against other states and other countries."
