Why study Engineering Mathematics at Asbury University?
Asbury University offers a dual-degree program in Engineering in cooperation with the University of Kentucky (UK), which is located in nearby Lexington. Students in this program take courses at AU for three years and then transfer to the University of Kentucky for an additional two to three years to complete the requirements for one of seven engineering degrees. In this program, you receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Engineering Mathematics from Asbury University upon satisfactory completion of the first year of studies at University of Kentucky. Upon completing the remaining requirements in engineering, you receive a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from UK.
There are many benefits to studying at Asbury University before beginning degree completion at UK. Aside from receiving two bachelor’s degrees through this program, you have the opportunity to complete Foundations courses, which train you to connect your major with other disciplines and engage with multiple perspectives. AU’s integrative academic programs will offer you a deep understanding of your field, while giving you a passion for a lifetime of learning, and for professional and career success. In addition, relationships with professors, camaraderie with your peers, and numerous opportunities for direct experience are what make your Engineering Mathematics studies at Asbury University unparalleled.

What opportunities will I have outside of class?
- In math modeling competitions, such as COMAP and SCUDEM, you apply what you learn in class to real-world situations. Students have researched the optimization of emergency evacuations and many other topics.
- Many Asbury students do internships with highly respected companies, and every year AU receives compliments about the quality, knowledge and work ethic of our students. In house, our Engineering Math majors are using and gaining skills in collaborative internships, alongside chemists and biologists.
- You can request that a professor work with you directly as you prepare to present your research at the annual SEARCH Symposium and in other conferences across the nation. Some of the recent research our students have done:
- “Implementing Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles” Eric ’19
- “Modeling Population Growth of Linguistic Groups” Bo ’20
