Berry College maintains a dual-degree program with the College of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology at Kennesaw State University.
In both of these programs, the student is scheduled to attend Berry for approximately three years (six semesters). Then the student will transfer to the engineering school and take courses there for approximately two years (four, possibly five additional semesters). At the end of that period, the student will have earned two baccalaureate degrees, one from Berry and one from the engineering school.
Under these programs, students have the option of choosing a major or not choosing a major at Berry. Students choosing a major are encouraged to consider the Concentration II physics major that is specifically designed for dual-degree students and provides a strong background for a broad range of engineering specialties. Other majors are also possible. Certain ones may be particularly appropriate to a specific engineering specialty (e.g., chemical or computer engineering); however, these others majors may require extra time at Berry. If the student does not choose a major, the Berry degree will be in dual-degree engineering. The student is not limited in a choice of engineering specialty, although some specialties require certain courses at Berry and some may require an extra semester at the engineering school.

A general description of the requirements for the programs with both Georgia Institute of Technology and Kennesaw State University is given below.
