Combined Degree Programs

Pace University, in conjunction with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and Manhattan College, offers two combined programs in engineering: chemistry and engineering, and physics and engineering. Each is a 3+2 program in which the student takes three years of instruction at Pace University and two years of instruction at RPI or Manhattan College.

The chemistry and physics bachelor’s degrees are awarded by Pace University and the engineering bachelor’s degrees by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute or Manhattan College. These unique programs combine a solid education in the basic sciences with a highly pragmatic understanding of the application of science to industry and business. They are programs suited to the Westchester area, a region with a large technical work force and the ongoing need for trained professionals.

Science/engineering combinations permitted are as follows:

  • Chemistry at Pace with chemical engineering at Manhattan College or chemical engineering, biochemical engineering, environmental engineering, industrial and management engineering, material engineering at RPI; and
  • Physics at Pace with electrical engineering at Manhattan College or electrical engineering, aeronautical engineering, civil engineering, electrical power engineering, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineering at RPI.

RPI additionally offers other options leading to masters degrees.
