Engineering with Economics

Students interested in a career in management and finance should pursue the Engineering Sciences Major modified with Economics by contacting Professor Geoffrey Parker.

Prerequisites

Modified majors are expected to have a basic understanding of calculus, physics, chemistry, and computer science. First-year students interested in the major should take the placement test in mathematics.

Unless otherwise prohibited, prerequisites may be taken under the Non-Recording Option.

Culminating Experience

Engineering Sciences majors complete a culminating experience, which is part of a course (either as one of the two electives or as an additional course). Normally taken during the senior year, the course is chosen from the following options below, and for modified majors, must be justified as part of a larger unified coherent program of study.
