Engineering Dual Degree

This dual-degree program supports prospective and current students who are considering or have decided on an engineering major.

The University of Redlands is partnering with Columbia University to offer a 5-year combined degree program leading to a B.S.  from Columbia’s School of Engineering and Applied Science and a B.A. or B.S. from Redlands. The program combines the strength of a liberal arts education in a small college setting with professional education at a  highly regarded school of engineering. The degrees prepare students for a career in industry or graduate work in engineering, mathematics or the physical sciences.

For the first three years, students study at the University of Redlands and complete requirements for their Redlands major, their general education, and pre-engineering courses. During the second semester of their junior year, they apply for admission to Columbia University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, which is guaranteed if they have successfully fulfilled the program’s requirements.

For the next two years, students study at Columbia in New York City. Upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded a double major—one from Redlands and the other from Columbia. Students are free to pair any Redlands undergraduate major with any Columbia University engineering or applied science major although the pre-engineering requirements are most compatible with the physics B.A. or individualized Johnston emphases.

Students who qualify for the program can contact Program Adviser Eric Hill at 748-8695 or

The University has five Centers of Distinction.
