Sample A.B./B.E. Programs
Although engineering at Dartmouth is cross-disciplinary, students can also pursue interests in traditional engineering fields.
During the A.B. 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 B.E. 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 B.E. program work with faculty advisors to develop the best programs.
The sample programs accessed through the list below show the typical foundation and advanced courses for specific engineering fields.
- Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Environmental Engineering
- Materials Science and Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Engineering Management — students interested in combining the A.B., B.E., and M.E.M. programs should review the typical program for a combined B.E./M.E.M. degree
The flexibility of the five-year B.E. program makes it possible for students majoring in Physics or Computer Science at Dartmouth to also obtain the B.E. with an additional year of study following the A.B.
- Students interested in physics and engineering can major in Engineering Physics, or major in Physics with an Engineering Sciences minor, then continue to the B.E. program (see Sample A.B./B.E. 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 B.E. program (see Sample A.B./B.E. Programs for Dartmouth Computer Science Majors for details).
