A new agreement with Columbia University gives Colby students another opportunity to earn a dual degree in engineering. Colby has offered a similar program with Dartmouth for many years, but the Columbia program offers specialized degrees, such as electrical engineering, said Associate Professor of Computer Science Bruce Maxwell, advisor to the program. Students apply during their senior year and spend two years after graduation at Columbia. According to Columbia’s materials, admission is guaranteed to students from affiliated liberal arts colleges who meet the requirements.
