No. You may earn either the major or the minor, but not both.
No. You cannot earn a double major in the two tracks (environmental engineering and materials engineering). You may take courses from both tracks as long as you satisfy all of the prerequisite courses.

Yes, you can earn the bachelor’s of science degree in applied sciences degree along with a second degree from another department or school outside the Department of Applied Physical Sciences. Not only is this allowed, the flexibility of our degree program makes earning a double major more feasible than you would typically find at other engineering programs.
Unfortunately, no. Students who enroll as first-year students for fall 2024 semester (class of 2028) are the first students who can apply for admission to the program.
