Technical Requirements: Lab

What is required?

One semester of chemistry and/or physics laboratory work; selection will depend upon major.

In most cases, students can make their own decision on whether they would rather take chemistry or physics lab. Students who choose chemistry lab should take it in the first year. Students who choose physics lab must wait until their second year. There are a few Columbia Engineering majors that specify either chemistry or physics lab (or require both). Students should consult with their Advising Dean and/or the SEAS Bulletin before choosing a lab.

When?

First or second year.

Can I test out?

No.
