Emporia State and Wichita State universities are collaborating on a dual degree program.
ESU Provost Dr. David Cordle says the so-called "three-plus-two" program takes advantages of each university's strengths, combining those to help students at both institutions.
Cordle says this is a new pathway for students interested in engineering careers to reach their goals.
The program also has a so-called "reverse transfer" aspect, allowing students to take courses at Wichita State and have those count towards a bachelor's degree from ESU.
The program with Wichita State closely resemble separate agreements already in place between Emporia State and Kansas State and also between ESU and KU.
