About this course

 The Jerome Fisher Program in Management & Technology (M&T) is sponsored jointly by the School of Engineering and the Wharton School. The impetus for this joint-degree program came from the Board of Overseers of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. The Board of Overseers, a distinguished group of corporate executives and academicians, emphasized that an understanding of the fundamentals of engineering and technology is as essential to the background of future leaders in business and industry as is a sound knowledge of management principles. They pointed to the growing need for people who can bridge the management and technical disciplines. Undergraduate students enrolled in the M&T Program pursue degrees from both schools concurrently, creating a truly interdisciplinary learning experience. This combination enables students not only to understand engineering and business concepts, but also to understand the integration of the two and how this intersection distinctively shapes our world. M&T students pursue a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School and either a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) or a Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering (BAS) from Penn Engineering. The curriculum includes two special M&T “linking courses” that allow for added interdisciplinary learning opportunities. The common goal for all M&T students is the mastery of the technical and managerial skills necessary to define and solve problems in today's complex technological society. The structure of the joint-degree program gives each student considerable flexibility in meeting this goal. Particular attention is directed to the importance and processes of innovation in our technology-based industries.

Course Modules

Penn Engineering offers two separate degree options to students: Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) and Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS). The BSE is a traditional engineering degree and usually the best option for students who wish to be professional engineers, computer scientists, or pursue a graduate engineering degree. The BAS is designed for students with a deep interest in technology, but who do not wish to be professional engineers. This degree offers a wider range of course options with breadth in the engineering disciplines, but also in the liberal arts. Penn Engineering provides students with exceptional programs, research opportunities, and design experiences.

Engineering Majors
M&T students interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Sciences in Engineering can select from the following majors:

  • Bioengineering
  • Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Digital Media Design
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Materials Science Engineering
  • Networked & Social Systems Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics
  • Systems Science Engineering

M&T students interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Applied Science can select from the following majors:

  • Biomedical Science
  • Computer and Cognitive Science
  • Computational Biology
  • Computer Science
  • Individualized

The majority of M&T students start their first semester as curriculum deferred within Penn Engineering. All students are required to declare their Penn Engineering major by the end of their freshmen year. Admitted M&T students unsure of their engineering major will be given guidance from the M&T Office on course selection for their first semester.

Although each engineering major requires specific courses to be taken to complete the major, there are some requirements all engineering majors must meet. All Penn Engineering graduates will need to complete math, natural science, social science and humanities courses, and the writing seminar to earn their Penn Engineering degrees.

Home School Applicant Guidelines
Penn welcomes and encourages applications from a growing number of Home School students. We enjoy getting to know academically talented and often courageous pioneers who chart non-conventional academic paths. As part of Penn’s holistic evaluation process, home school applicants are asked to review the Application Tips below and to complete all sections of the Common Application and Penn Writing Supplement.

More information is better… In the Secondary School Report and elsewhere in your Penn application, please share your motivations for choosing a rigorous home school journey.  Why did you or your family seek home schooling as an option for your education?  Describe your curriculum in detail and tell us how you, your family or oversight group have organized your pursuit of knowledge across core academic disciplines including humanities, math, social and natural sciences, and foreign languages.  How has being home schooled helped you grow intellectually and personally or enhanced your opportunities for learning?  The aim is to help the admissions committee understand how you have worked to “demonstrate mastery” and “distinguish excellence” across the curriculum.  Anything you or your academic supervisor can do to explain and contextualize your educational circumstances can only be helpful in the Penn admissions process.

Application Tips

  • It is partcularly important for each home school applicant to submit a consolidated transcript that pulls together and organizes all academic work. If the name of a course isn't clear or needs further explanation, include a brief course description. Course listings, grading/rating scales, syllabi, lab work, reading lists, textbooks or historical/current information help to enhance our understanding of your academic program.
  • Standardized test scores in subjects you wish to showcase may provide objective evidence and support for grades and ratings.
  • Recommendations and viewpoints provided by instructors from outside of your home provide objective evaluations and lend additional context to your academic work.
  • The Secondary School Report may be completed by a high school guidance counselor, homeschool program coordinator, curriculum advisor, or family and may include motivations for home schooling, description of curricula, etc.

International Application Guidelines
Prior to the expected date of entrance at Penn, an international applicant should have completed a program of secondary education that would enable the student to enter a university in his or her own country (e.g., A-levels, Abitur). 

Because Penn's admissions decisions are made prior to the announcement of the results of many national examinations (such as the A-levels or the French Baccalaureate), applicants are expected to be enrolled in programs preparing them for these examinations. Applicants must also request that their schools send Penn predictions of external examination results in addition to the school marks. 

Where national examinations are required for admission to a pre-university program (e.g., GCSE, SPM, HKCE, WASC, O-levels, or India's "Std X" examination), students should have received high marks on these examinations and should present certified copies of the examination results with their applications to Penn. 

We are also interested in learning about your non-scholarly interests, community service, and extracurricular activities (while recognizing that patterns for non-academic involvement vary from country to country). 

 TOEFL Examination
Penn's school code is 2926.

A strong command of the English language is necessary for successful study at Penn. Applicants whose families do not speak English at home, or applicants who have not attended a high school or secondary school where the primary language of instruction is English, are asked to take the TOEFL, the Test of English as a Foreign Language, administered by the Educational Testing Service. Non-native English speakers who are attending English-speaking schools are also encouraged to take the TOEFL. In general, it is good practice for all applicants who have English as a second language to take the TOEFL.

To register, visit TOEFL's website. Results should be forwarded directly to the Penn Office of Admissions.

Prospective applicants should register for TOEFL two-to-three months before the test administration date.

Be sure to designate Penn as a recipient university each time you register. If you are in your final year and are testing in October or later, we recommend that you do not use Score Choice. If you have taken the test but did not designate Penn as a score recipient, please do so afterwards. Send Penn an unofficial copy of your scores as well.
