Degrees and Majors

Undergraduate students in the School of Engineering follow a common first year curriculum.  Students declare a specific engineering major during the second semester of the first-year studies. Following the declaration of a major, each student will begin to follow the curriculum and receive advising specific to their chosen engineering department. SOE students must adhere to school-wide policies in order to graduate.  

Note: While students are able to consult the Degree Navigator system, an online tool that provides curricular information, there are inconsistencies in the system and it should NOT be used to represent your official record of progress toward your degree. That official record is your curriculum check-off sheet which is maintained in your academic file in the Office of Academic Affairs, B100. You may request a copy of your curriculum check-off sheet at any time.

Dual Degrees - Double Majors/Minors

Students can earn dual degrees from the School of Engineering and the Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences. Engineering School students must apply to and be accepted by the School of Arts and Sciences and, at the time of graduation, they would receive a separate degree from each school. Applications must be submitted during sophomore or junior year.
