Study math, computer science or physics here for three years and then study engineering for two years at Columbia University, earning a bachelor's degree from Susquehanna and an engineering degree from Columbia.
From concept to real-world
Tackle real world challenges using math—climate change, medical breakthroughs, new energy resources, corporate business decisions and more.
You'll study the patterns that surround us, including building design, your cell phone's operation, the shape of a bubble and even the music on Pandora. Take classes in the rapidly growing field of data mining, where you'll learn to analyze large amounts of data on web browsing, email and online shopping habits.
As a senior, you'll spend a semester investigating a subject that especially intrigues you—like Google's PageRank algorithm, how to win at blackjack or how new roads can actually increase traffic.
Classes are small—especially in the upper levels—so you'll get personalized attention and support from math faculty who are active experts in their fields.
Interested in engineering? Study here for three years and get your bachelor's degree in computer science, and then get an engineering degree from Columbia University, Washington University of St. Louis or Case Western Reserve University through our joint engineering program.
