Dual Degree Program

Dual Degree in Science and Engineering with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering

Since the Fall of 2010, the College's Dual-Degree program in Science and Engineering with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, formerly known as 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 and a traditional engineering program. The program is ideal for the student interested in science and engineering who is also eager for a liberal arts experience before entering an undergraduate engineering environment. 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.

  • B.S. in Biology/B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
  • B.S. in Chemistry/B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
  • B.S. in Computer Science/B.S. in Computer Engineering
  • B.S. in Computer Science/B.S. in Electrical Engineering
  • B.S. in Mathematics/B.S. in Civil Engineering
  • B.S. in Mathematics/B.S. in Computer Engineering
  • B.S. in Mathematics/B.S. in Electrical Engineering
  • B.S. in Mathematics/B.S. in Mechanical Engineering
  • B.S. in Physics/B.S. in Civil Engineering
  • B.S. in Physics/B.S. in Computer Engineering
  • B.S. in Physics/B.S. in Electrical Engineering
  • B.S. in Physics/B.S. in Mechanical Engineering

Students in the program complete all of the College Core Curriculum requirements, with the exception of the foreign language requirement, from which they are excused. (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, and students with Advanced Placement credit may be able to lighten some of their semester course loads and/or have room for more electives.

Detailed programs of study for each of the curricula are available on the program website and can be used for reference.  Advising for students in the program develops from their CAS academic advisor in the first year, to the CAS major advisor and Tandon major advisor in the students later years.  The advising evolves along with the students’ academic focus and coursework.
