A minimum of 20 course credits: 12 courses in engineering, including a final capstone project; and 8 courses in mathematics and physical sciences. Because of the large number of credits required for the engineering major, students considering the engineering major should take the following courses in their first year:

  • MAT 119-120 (Calculus of a Single Variable Part I and II) or MAT 121 (Calculus of a Single Variable)
  • PHY 161 (General Physics I)
  • EGR 131 (Introduction to Engineering Design)
  • EGR 231 (Engineering Mechanics)

Mathematics and Physical Sciences courses (required)

  • MAT 119-120 (Calculus of a Single Variable Part I and II) or MAT 121 (Calculus of a Single Variable)
  • MAT 122 (Calculus of Several Variables)
  • MAT 221 (Linear Algebra)
  • MAT 236 (Differential Equations)
  • PHY 161 (General Physics I)
  • PHY 162 (General Physics II)
  • CHE 121 (Chemical Principles I) or CHE 161 (Accelerated General Chemistry)
  • One additional science course chosen from one of the following departments or majors: Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Studies, Geology, or Physics. All of the courses used to fulfill the requirement must be designated Science, Laboratory Science, or Mathematics and be acceptable for the minimal major in the offering department.
