This program, a B.A. degree program in Engineering/Liberal Arts, followed by a B.S. degree program in an engineering discipline from a partner school, is a dual degree, five-year program that will empower you for many career opportunities. Our curriculum provides a broad foundation in engineering and mathematics, including course work in chaos and fractals, cryptography, data compression algorithms, tomography and turbulence and engineering drawing that will prepare you to excel in engineering school. In addition, the unique combination of the sciences and the liberal arts that this program provides will expose you to a broad range of disciplines that employ engineers.
