The five-year programs in liberal arts and engineering offer students the opportunity to obtain a broader education in the arts or sciences while completing the requirements for a major in engineering.

Students may combine any Bachelor of Science degree program in engineering with any Bachelor of Arts degree. Those who successfully complete this program are awarded the single degree of Bachelor of Science in the engineering major and Bachelor of Arts in the second major.

Students in this program must fulfill the distribution requirements and the major requirements for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and either the Bachelor of Science in biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental or mechanical engineering, or the Bachelor of Science in computer science and engineering. Suggested course sequences for each five-year program are available from the Office of the Dean of Engineering.

Students may apply to enter this dual program at any time during the first five semesters of one of the engineering B.S. programs. Students also may apply to enter this program from one of the programs in the College of Arts & Sciences. The timing for this change is critical because of the sequential nature of the courses in the engineering programs. Students interested in making this academic change should consult the associate dean of the College of Engineering as early as possible and not later than the third semester of study. Enrollment space and financial aid availability may be limited.
