Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Joint Degree Chemisty Programs


Cooperative education agreements between Pace and other institutions of higher learning exist in the professional science areas indicated below. Candidates for admission to these joint degree programs must satisfy separate admission requirements of both schools. Note that admission to the undergraduate Pace University part of a joint program does not guarantee admission to the program of the other institution. Professional science areas include Chemical Engineering, Occupational Therapy, Optometry, and Podiatry.

Pace BS Chemistry (PLV) and Manhattan College BE Chemical Engineering

Pace University and Manhattan College jointly offer a five-year program which leads to a bachelor of science in chemistry from Pace and a bachelor of chemical engineering from Manhattan. The program requires three years of study at Pace, two years at Manhattan, and summer courses. Pace students generally follow the standard BS in Chemistry program for required major courses and auxiliary courses but with appropriate modifications in required major electives and required engineering courses transferred from Manhattan. For the general BS in Chemistry curriculum, please see the undergraduate degree section of this catalog.

Application for transfer is made by the student during the third year at Pace. For more information about this joint program, contact the department chair or academic advisor in the Department of Chemistry and Physical Sciences (PLV).

Pace BS Chemistry (PLV) and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute BE Chemical Engineering

Pace University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) jointly offer a five-year program which leads to a bachelor of science in chemistry from Pace and a bachelor of chemical engineering from RPI. This program requires three years of study at Pace, two years at RPI, and summer courses. Application for transfer is made by the student during the third year at Pace. Pace students generally follow the standard BS in Chemistry program for required major courses and auxiliary courses but with appropriate modifications in required major electives and required engineering courses transferred from RPI. For the standard BS in Chemistry curriculum, please see the undergraduate degree section of this catalog.

For more information about this joint program, contact the department chair or academic advisor in the Department of Chemistry and Physical Sciences (PLV).

CHEMISTRY AND CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, B.S.

Pace Univeristy offers Chemistry majors the option of earning two degrees, a B.S. in Chemistry at Pace University and a B.S. either at Manhattan College or at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, School of Engineering. Both of these joint programs involve five years of education. Each program requires three years of study at Pace and two years of study at the other institution, including summer coursework. Application for transfer is made by the student during the third year at Pace.

Students interested in any of these programs should meet with a Chemistry Department advisor for full details.

ENGINEERING
Engineers work at the interface of scientific theory and practice to solve society’s technical problems. Students with strong quantitative skills as well as an ability to visualize solutions may find Engineering to be a rewarding profession.

Joint Programs with Manhattan College
    Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Chemical Engineering (PLV)
    Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (PLV)
Pace University and Manhattan College offer two five-year programs. One leads to a bachelor of science in physics from Pace and a bachelor of electrical engineering from Manhattan. The other leads to a bachelor of science in chemistry from Pace and a bachelor of chemical engineering from Manhattan. Each program requires three years of study at Pace, and two years at Manhattan and summer courses. Application for transfer is made by the student during the third year at Pace.

Joint Programs with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)
    Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Science (PLV)
    Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Science/Master of Engineering (PLV)
    Bachelor of Science/Master of Science (PLV)
Pace University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute offer a number of five-year programs combining either Chemistry or physics with engineering. The programs are as follows: biomedical engineering and chemistry; chemical engineering and chemistry; environmental engineering and chemistry; industrial and management engineering and chemistry; materials engineering and chemistry; aeronautical engineering and physics; civil engineering and physics; computer and systems engineering and physics; electrical power and physics; electrical engineering and physics; and nuclear engineering and physics.

Options
1. Three years + two years. The student completes three years at Pace, then two years at Rensselaer’s School of Engineering. The student receives a BS from Pace and a BS degree with a major in Engineering from Rensselaer.
2. Three years + three years. The student completes their studies at Pace through the junior year, and then three additional years at Rensselaer. This program leads to a bachelor’s degree from Pace University and the BS and ME degrees from Rensselaer.
3. Four years + two years. Under this option, a graduate of Pace University enters the School of Engineering at Rensselaer for graduate work leading to an MS degree in one of the engineering specialties.
For further information please contact the academic adviser in the Department of Chemistry and Physical Sciences.
