Majors and Certificate Programs
The undergraduate educational mission of the School of Engineering and Applied Science of Princeton University is to educate future leaders in engineering practice, research and education, business and finance, public service and other professions. Students learn fundamental engineering principles and how to apply them to real-world problems whose solutions require an interdisciplinary perspective.
The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree is granted by six departments of the School of Engineering and Applied Science: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Chemical & Biological Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Operations Research and Financial Engineering.
The Department of Computer Science also offers the Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) degree.
Although Princeton does not offer dual majors, there is sufficient flexibility in the program of study for students to pursue multiple interests. Interdepartmental certificate programs provide structure and recognition for interdisciplinary study.
