Binary Engineering is a five-year dual degree program between the Department of Physics at Duquesne University and the School of Engineering at either the University of Pittsburgh or Case Western Reserve University. The program leads to a Bachelor of Arts in Physics from Duquesne University and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from either Pitt or Case Western Reserve. The 3/2 Model Years 1, 2 and 3 are spent at Duquesne University for a minimum of 100 credits, 25 of them in physics. At the end of year 3 students formally transfer to Pitt or Case Western, for years 4 and 5 of the program. Depending on the engineering major of choice, between 74 and 86 credits are transferable from the Physics major to the Engineering major. Most engineering majors can be completed in years 4 and 5 without the need to take summer classes. In all cases, close advisement and proper planning of the five years is required, which is accomplished under the simultaneous guidance of advisors from both Schools. At the completion of the requirements for the engineering degree, 20 credits transfer back to Duquesne in order to complete the physics degree.
