3-2 Cooperative Program in Engineering

Students enrolled in the 3-2 Cooperative Program in Engineering complete the requirements for the physics degree through the junior year. They then transfer to an engineering program and complete an additional two years. They earn a double bachelor’s degree in physics and engineering.

Availability

The major in engineering physics is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill. Students in Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies may major in engineering physics only if their schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day courses on the Rose Hill campus.

Fordham College at Rose Hill students: The requirements above are in addition to those of the Core Curriculum.
