KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The College of Engineering at the University of Tennessee and Fisk University in Nashville have entered into an agreement to offer a dual-degree program in science and engineering.

According to a news release from UT, the five-year program will allow students to spend their first three years at Fisk as math and science majors and then transfer to UT for two years to complete their engineering degrees. Students will graduate with two bachelor’s degrees, one from each institution.

The program begins this fall and will be evaluated after five years.

The news release said the National Science Foundation ranks Fisk as the No. 1 producer of blacks who go on to earn doctoral degrees in the natural sciences.
