WILKES-BARRE — Enrollment in a dual-degree engineering program at King’s College has exceeded expectations for the second year in a row.
Though the college said it only expected to attract 12 students, 30 will enter the program in August. Similarly, 20 students joined in the program’s first year last fall, more than doubling the modest projection of just eight.
Students will spend three years at King’s studying mathematics, pre-engineering and science before transferring to Notre Dame for two more years of engineering courses. Upon completion graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree from King’s and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from Notre Dame.
