Since the Fall of 2010, the College's Dual-Degree program in Science and Engineering with the Polytechnic Institute of NYU 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 the Bachelor of Science degree from the College of Arts and Science at New York University and the Bachelor of Science degree from the Polytechnic Institute of NYU. Students with this combination of degrees are likely to find excellent employment opportunities.

The available dual-degree combinations are as follows:
  • 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 from Mr. Tyrell Davis, the adviser for all students in the various programs. He may be contacted at the College Advising Center, Silver Center, 100 Washington Square East, Room 905, 212-998-8130.
