This five-year, dual-degree program is ideal for technically oriented students who are looking to stand out in an increasingly competitive job market. Blending liberal arts with technical knowledge, the program is conducted with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and leads to a B.S. degree in chemistry or physics from Seton Hall and a B.S. degree in biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial or mechanical engineering from NJIT. Students spend three years at Seton Hall and two at NJIT. In that time, they have ample internship and co-op opportunities and may join federally funded research projects at Seton Hall. They then enjoy a wide range of career options after graduation.
