The Cooperative Program with Columbia University asks students to meet a number of admissions requirements. Students to prepare for careers in applied science or engineering. Students earn a BA degree from Fordham University and a BS degree from Columbia University in one of the following fields:

  • Applied Chemistry
  • Bioengineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Chemical Metallurgy
  • Chemical Sequence
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Engineering Mathematics
  • Industrial and Management Science
  • Materials Science
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Mineral Engineering
  • Mining Engineering
  • Nuclear Engineering
  • Operations Research
  • Physical Sequence

Students in this program:

  • Spend 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
  • After completing their first year at Columbia, they receive their BS degree from Fordham;
  • After completing the second year at Columbia, they receive their BS 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 adviser upon request.
