Programme Structure

  • In many instances, it may be advisable to take the two degrees at the end of the fifth year. Arts-engineers working toward the Bachelor of Science in biology, computer science, environmental science, geological sciences, geophysics, molecular biology or statistics are advised to pay special attention to the engineering Humanities and Social Science requirement, which must be met in time for the student to qualify for the B.S. in engineering. 
  • Arts-engineers have the same opportunities for multiple majors and special interdisciplinary majors as are available to students working for the baccalaureate (B.S. or B.A. degree only) in the colleges.
