Advance Registration Guide

Specialized Dual Degree Programs

Specialized dual degree programs link the Engineering degree programs with another degree program in one of the other three undergraduate schools at Penn. Specialized dual degree students may choose either the BAS or the BSE. Both require a minimum combined total of 46 course units of work. The options are limitless, and we urge you to explore any interests you may have. If you have any questions about these programs, an advisor in the Academic Programs Office will be able to help you.

The Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology (M&T)

Students in the M&T Program earn a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School (BS) and a BSE or a BAS from Penn Engineering. Students are admitted to the program in the first year. However, a few additional spots are held for internal transfer into the program at the beginning of the second year. Through the admission process, you have been designated to enter Penn Engineering as a BSE-Curriculum Deferred (CD) student. However, during the summer, if you already know which major you wish to pursue, please email the following information, with “Major Correction” as the subject, to apo@seas.upenn.edu:

  1. Full Name
  2. 8-Digit Penn ID Number
  3. Correct Engineering Major

The deadline to change/declare a major is Friday, July 31, 2009. Please follow the recommended courses below:

Recommended Courses for the First Semester for M&T

  • MGMT 100
  • MATH 104
  • ECON 010
