SUNY Cortland participates in 3+2 engineering programs in which students spend three years on the Cortland campus majoring in chemistry or physics and then spend two years on a cooperating campus majoring in engineering. Those who complete this program receive two degrees, a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry or Physics, and a bachelor of science in a field of engineering. Schools that our students have attended include:
