Important Note: This sample schedule shows one of many ways to fulfill all requirements for graduation from the Dual Degree Engineering program. See the course catalog or the Physics Department website for a full list of courses that may be used to satisfy the elective requirements. The sequence of courses taken will differ among students depending on interests, future goals, advanced placement status, desired minor in another department, and other factors. You will need to consult regularly with your Physics and Engineering advisors to maintain a program that fits your needs.

University Core Courses Note: The writing course, TIDES course, public service course, foreign language requirement, and cultural knowledge electives satisfy Newcomb-Tulane core requirements for graduation. See the Core Curriculum section of the catalog for more details. Please talk regularly with your Newcomb-Tulane College advisor to ensure that you are meeting the requirements of the core curriculum.
