A hallmark of a Rensselaer education is the flexibility we offer our students in developing a degree or degrees that work for them. We make dual majors a highly realizable option, with as many as half of all students going in this direction. Typical combinations include physics/math, computer science/computer and systems engineering, and computer science/cognitive science.
