Lightning may not strike twice, but you can graduate twice in a fraction of the time with this dual degree program.
UNT’s College of Engineering and TWU’s College of Arts and Science are offering a unique opportunity for students interested in math and engineering. Students can now attend both universities simultaneously and graduate with a bachelor of science in mathematics from TWU and a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from UNT.

Why earn a dual degree in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics?

The dual degree program in mathematics and electrical engineering combines the strengths of Texas Woman’s University (TWU) and the University of North Texas to permit students to earn two degrees simultaneously while preparing for a professional career in engineering.

Undergraduate students attend TWU and UNT simultaneously. After completion of the program, students receive the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in mathematics from TWU and the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in electrical engineering from UNT.

And that's just a start. More and more of the objects in our world are powered by electrical engineers.

  • Overall employment of electrical engineers is projected to grow 7% from 2020 to 2030.
  • Median earnings for electrical engineers in 2020 were $103,390.
  • Texas is a top-paying state for electrical engineers, with an annual mean wage of $107,270.
  • California is the top-paying state for electrical engineers in the country, with an annual mean wage of $124,390.

Dual Degree in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics Courses You Could Take

Communications Systems (3 hrs)
This course includes an introduction to the concepts of transmission of information via communication channels; amplitude and angle modulation for the transmission of continuous-time signals; analog-to-digital conversion and pulse code modulation; transmission of digital data; introduction to random signals and noise and their effects on communication; and optimum detection systems in the presence of noise.
Engineering Electromagnetics (3 hrs)Topics include electromagnetic theory as applied to electrical engineering
vector calculus; electrostatics and magnetostatics; Maxwell’s equations, including Poynting’s theorem and boundary conditions; uniform plane-wave propagation; transmission lines – TEM modes, including treatment of general, lossless line and pulse propagation; introduction to guided waves; and introduction to radiation and scattering concepts.
Introduction to Electrical Engineering (3 hrs)
Learning to Learn (L2L) is based on sound cognitive and pedagogical techniques that improve learning outcomes and make lifelong learning habitual. Students develop an understanding of how engineering is learned and how they can facilitate and develop the lifelong learning process, both individually and in teams.
Analog and Digital Circuit Design Project (3 hrs)
Students learn to use basic electrical engineering lab equipment, to build and test simple circuits in the lab and to design and analyze circuits using CAD software tools. Includes simulation and design experiments and a final comprehensive design project to complement the circuit analysis course.
Modern Communication System Design Project (3 hrs)
Students are required to design electronic communication systems with electronic devices such as MOS transistors, capacitors and resistors. Topics include LC circuits and oscillators, AM modulation, SSB communications and FM modulation.
Signals and Systems (3 hrs)
Topics include elementary concepts of continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems; linear time-invariant (LTI) systems, impulse response, convolution, Fourier series, Fourier transforms and frequency-domain analysis of LTI systems; and laplace transforms, z-transforms and rational function descriptions of LTI systems.
