Under the program students can earn bachelor’s degrees in chemistry, computer science, or mathematics at Fayetteville State. Those that major in chemistry at Fayetteville State will spend their last two years earning a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering at North Carolina State. Those that major in computer science at Fayetteville State will receive bachelor’s degrees in either computer engineering or electrical engineering after spending two years at North Carolina State. And those that major in mathematics at Fayetteville State will receive a degree in civil engineering after two years of study at North Carolina State.
