Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Integrated Business and Engineering major, offered through a collaboration between the Fairfield Dolan School of Business and the School of Engineering and Computing, is designed to prepare students for tech-driven business careers. The STEM-designated, cohort-based program will provide students with the skills needed to bridge business, technology, and STEM fields, and to lead technological operations for organizations or tech startups.

Students will pursue a combined curriculum of the Fairfield Magis Core, business courses, and engineering courses. As part of the program, students will be asked to complete at least one internship and will participate in the StartUp program which gives students the experience of learning the entrepreneurial process. Fairfield Dolan’s Career Development Center will support students by providing professional development opportunities throughout the academic year, as well as career services support.

Fairfield will welcome a small cohort of students for this selective program each academic year. Students will receive individualized support through advising and mentoring during their four years of undergraduate study. Fairfield University is now accepting applications to welcome the first cohort of students in fall, 2024.
