The 3 + 2 program in Engineering allows a student to earn two degrees over a period of five years (depending on course loads): the B.A. in Interdepartmental Studies from The College of Saint Rose and a B.S. in Engineering at either Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) or Clarkson University. Under our affiliation agreements with RPI and Clarkson, students complete three years of prescribed course work at Saint Rose and then complete two years of study within the Engineering programs at the other institution. Students interested in this program should consult the office of Undergraduate Admissions or the School of Mathematics and Sciences.
Final approval for admission into the Interdepartmental Studies Program rests solely with the specific departments. Once approved, department chairs and deans sign the student’s Plan of Study, and the student brings the completed form to the Director of Academic Advising, who files a copy and sends a copy to the Registrar’s Office for official documentation of Interdepartmental Studies as the student’s major.
