Five-Year B.A./B.S. Program in New Brunswick/Piscataway

The five-year, dual-degree program in engineering and the liberal arts/sciences is offered by the School of Engineering in cooperation with the following liberal arts colleges: Douglass College, Livingston College, and Rutgers College. (Students also may begin the five-year program at the Camden College of Arts and Sciences or the Newark College of Arts and Sciences. See Transfer Programs with Camden and Newark later in this chapter.) The five-year program leads to a bachelor of science degree in any of the engineering curricula listed at the beginning of this chapter and a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree in any major offered by the cooperating liberal arts college.

Students interested in the five-year program may apply prior to their first year to one of the liberal arts colleges under whose jurisdiction they remain for the first two years. Transfer to the School of Engineering at the end of the second year is not automatic; students' records are reviewed at the end of the third term by the School of Engineering. After acceptance, students come under the academic jurisdiction of the School of Engineering for the remaining three years of the program. Alternatively, students in the four-year program may apply to a liberal arts college after their first year and prior to their final year for admission to the program.

In all five-year curricula, the engineering portion of the program for the first two years is common. Selection of a particular engineering field of study is made at the end of the second year. After transferring to the School of Engineering, students remain affiliated with their liberal arts college for student services and continue to be responsible for completion of that college's requirements for the B.A. (or B.S.) degree. Both degrees are conferred at the end of the fifth year. The program requires that both degrees must be conferred at the same time even if requirements for one degree is completed before the other.
