Columbia University launches dual dental, engineering degree

Columbia University in New York City recently launched a dual degree in dentistry and engineering. 

The first-of-its-kind program seeks to alleviate a shortage of scientists in the dental industry who can translate scientific findings into dental care, according to a Nov. 11 news release. Graduates will receive a Doctor of Dental Surgery/Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Engineering.

The school will welcome its first cohort of students in the fall.
