This program of studies is recommended for students who have educational and career interests in any engineering field of study including electrical, mechanical, aeronautical, civil or chemical engineering with a strong physics background in mind.

The first three years are spent enrolled at SUNY Potsdam, but during the second and third years the student is a part-time student at Clarkson University. The students in their fourth and fifth years are full-time at Clarkson University. At the end of the fifth year, the student receives both a B.A. in physics from SUNY Potsdam and a B.S. degree from Clarkson University in the engineering field of choice made by the student. See page 71 for more details.

First-year students must register for MATH 151, PHYS 103, and a General Education FW or FS course during the first semester in order to take subjects in sequence.
