# Sample AB/BE Programs for Dartmouth Computer Science Majors

Students interested in computer science and engineering can major in computer science modified with engineering, or in computer science with an engineering sciences minor, then continue to the Bachelor of Engineering (BE) program.

The sample programs below are examples of what can be done. Interested students should plan their programs in consultation with a professor in each department to ensure that all degree requirements are met.
