Policies Governing the Engineering Major for College Students

  • College students pursuing an engineering major DO NOT earn a dual degree. They earn a single degree from the College of Arts and Sciences.
  • Because College students who pursue an engineering major do not earn the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) degree, they do not receive professional certification and are not thereby qualified to sit for any certification exam in Engineering.
  • The engineering major does not fulfill the College’s Major Requirement for graduation and must be declared as a second (or third) major. College students pursuing a major in engineering must have a major in the College of Arts and Sciences.
  • For College students pursuing an engineering major, the graduation requirement of at least 16 courses in the College of Arts and Sciences outside of the College major still applies.
  • Policies governing academic actions (Mandatory Leave of Absence and drops), academic standing (probation), and petitions are those of the College of Arts and Sciences.

For a list of available second majors, see the SEAS website.
