Binary Engineering

Experience the best of both worlds with our Binary Engineering dual degree program. This unique opportunity allows you to pursue an integrated curriculum jointly offered by two of the top universities in the country: The University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) or Case Western Reserve University (CWRU).

Over your initial three years at Duquesne, you will complete a minimum of 102 credits, encompassing all physics requirements. Starting as early as your second year, you will take courses at the engineering school to build a seamless transition to the larger program. In your fourth year, you will transition to either Pitt or CWRU to fulfill the engineering requirements and attain your dual degree.

As a nationally ranked research institution, Duquesne offers a wide range of opportunities in the sciences and engineering. The focused class sizes ensure that you have easier access to faculty and resources, making it easier for you to pursue challenging opportunities that may be harder to find in larger programs.
