Program Director: David Craig

Students wishing to pursue careers in engineering participate in the bachelor's + master's dual degree partnership offered in conjunction with the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University. Pre-engineering concentrations in chemical, computer, civil, environmental, electrical, mechanical, aerospace and biological engineering are available.

Students with pre-engineering major concentrations complete their four-year bachelor's degree – in physics, computer science, chemistry or biology, as appropriate – at Le Moyne, while taking engineering courses at Syracuse University at no additional cost. Students who complete these engineering concentrations in good standing (including maintaining a 3.0 G.P.A., both overall and in their science and engineering courses) are pre-admitted to the appropriate engineering master's degree program at Syracuse University and receive a 50 percent tuition waiver, typically completing their master's degree in an additional three semesters. Students who successfully complete the partnership program earn both a bachelor's degree from Le Moyne and a master's degree in engineering from Syracuse University. See the Le Moyne College Engineering site at for more details.

Affiliated Institution: Syracuse University

Eligible Students: Those meeting requirements

Degrees Awarded: Bachelor's degree (B.S. or B.A.) with a concentration in pre-engineering from Le Moyne College and master's of engineering (M.S.) from Syracuse University (Ten individual major concentrations. Please see the appropriate section of the catalog for details concerning the individual major concentrations.)

Program Length: Four years at Le Moyne College and three semesters at Syracuse University

Contact: Director of Engineering Programs, Chair of the Department of Physics, Biology, Chemistry, or Mathematics & Computer Science, depending on the concentration.

Students participating in the Syracuse University Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree in Engineering Partnership must choose the appropriate pre-engineering concentration within the appropriate major. Please see the Physics, Biology, Chemistry, or Mathematics & Computer Science sections of this catalog for typical programs.

Students who successfully complete their Le Moyne bachelor's degree program with a concentration in pre-engineering with both an overall 3.0 G.P.A. and a 3.0 G.P.A. in their science, mathematics and engineering courses, are eligible for pre-admission into the appropriate master's degree program at Syracuse University and a 50 percent waiver on their master's degree tuition, subject to the terms of the agreement with Syracuse University. The master's degree will typically be completed in an additional three semesters after graduation from Le Moyne.

Permission to register for courses at Syracuse University required by the individual pre-engineering degree concentrations is at the discretion of the director of pre-engineering programs, and will be contingent upon satisfactory academic performance. Students must have both a 3.0 G.P.A. in all mathematics, science and engineering courses, and a 3.0 G.P.A. overall, through the end of the semester prior to the semester in which registration takes place, in order to be permitted to register for engineering courses at Syracuse University for a given term. In addition, students must successfully maintain both 3.0 averages through the end of the term prior to the term in which the course(s) at Syracuse University are to be taken in order to be permitted to maintain that registration and take the course(s). Exceptions may be granted at the discretion of the program director.
