Students must complete the College General Education requirements.
Note: The Natural Science general education requirement is satisfied by the program requirement.

Students completing this five-year program receive the Bachelor of Arts degree (in physics) from Geneseo and the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from an engineering school. Please contact Dr. Ed Pogozelski for a list of engineering schools with which SUNY Geneseo has a 3/2 articulation agreement. Those pursuing this program must satisfy Geneseo’s requirements for four-year programs. Appropriate courses completed at the other institutions can be used to fulfill some of these requirements. Students must complete 90 credits at Geneseo before transferring to the engineering school.
