The Cooperative Program in Engineering is an educational affiliation between Fordham University and the School of Engineering and Applied Science of Columbia University, which enables students to prepare for careers in applied science or engineering. This plan leads to a B.A. degree from Fordham University, as well as a B.S. degree from Columbia University in one of the following fields:
Industrial and Management Science
Students in this program spend the equivalent of their first three academic years at Fordham College at Lincoln Center (typically majoring in mathematics). At the end of this period, they transfer to Columbia University for two years. After completing their first year at Columbia, they receive their B.A. degree from Fordham; after completing the second year at Columbia, they receive their B.S. engineering degree from Columbia.
All Fordham core curriculum requirements must be satisfied before the student begins courses at Columbia University. In addition, students must take core courses required by the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University. A list of those courses may be obtained from the program advisor upon request. Faculty Advisor: Tadeusz Strzemecki, LL 815A.
