Sample AB/BE Programs
Although engineering at Dartmouth is cross-disciplinary, students can also pursue interests in traditional engineering fields.
During the AB program, core engineering courses give students tools that are applicable to all fields while electives allow the student to investigate a field of choice. At the BE level, students deepen their theoretical and analytic work while simultaneously applying their engineering skills to problems in the industrial workplace.
Engineering sciences majors who plan to pursue the BE program work with faculty advisors to develop the best programs.
The sample programs, accessed through the list of PDF documents below, show the typical foundation and advanced courses for specific engineering fields.

The flexibility of the five-year BE program makes it possible for students majoring in Physics or Computer Science at Dartmouth to also obtain the BE with additional study in the year following their AB.
- Students interested in physics and engineering can major in Engineering Physics, or major in Physics with an Engineering Sciences minor, then continue to the BE program (see Sample AB/BE Programs for Dartmouth Physics Majors for details).
- Students interested in computer science and engineering can major in Computer Science with an Engineering Sciences minor or in Computer Science modified with Engineering, then continue to the BE program (see Sample AB/BE Programs for Dartmouth Computer Science Majors for details).
