Since the fall of 2010, the College’s dual degree program with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, formerly known as the Polytechnic School of Engineering, has offered highly qualified and motivated students who are technically oriented the opportunity to pursue both a liberal arts program with a major in science, mathematics, or computer science and a traditional engineering program. Upon completion of this five-year program, students receive both a B.S. degree from the College of Arts and Science and a B.S. degree from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Students with this combination of degrees are likely to find excellent employment opportunities.
It is crucial that students begin the required dual-degree coursework in their first year.
The available dual degree combinations are as follows:
- BS in Biology/BS in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
- BS in Chemistry/BS in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
- BS in Computer Science/BS in Computer Engineering
- BS in Computer Science/BS in Electrical Engineering
- BS in Mathematics/BS in Civil Engineering
- BS in Mathematics/BS in Computer Engineering
- BS in Mathematics/BS in Electrical Engineering
- BS in Mathematics/BS in Mechanical Engineering
- BS in Physics/BS in Civil Engineering
- BS in Physics/BS in Computer Engineering
- BS in Physics/BS in Electrical Engineering
- BS in Physics/BS in Mechanical Engineering
Students in the program complete all of the CAS College Core Curriculum requirements, with the exception of the foreign language requirement, from which they are exempted. (Their required mathematics and science courses automatically satisfy the Core’s Foundations of Scientific Inquiry requirements.) There is usually some flexibility concerning the semester in which a given course can be taken. Detailed programs of study for each of the degree combinations are available on the program website for reference.
