Notes on Requirements
Engineering course electives are included to assure that the student has some depth in engineering beyond the sophomore level. These are chosen from an approved list that includes courses with the following prefixes: CHME, CIVL, CMPE, ELEC, INDE, MECH, and SYST.
TCoE electives include the engineering course electives plus other courses offered by the Tagliatela College of Engineering, including chemistry (CHEM), computer science (CSCI), or others that may become available.
Electives for Minor are elective slots that can be used as needed to complete the courses for a minor in any area offered by the University. Satisfying a minor is a requirement for the BS General Engineering degree program. The number of courses needed for a minor varies, so students may need to use free electives in some cases to fully satisfy the desired minor. In other cases, courses taken as engineering course electives or TCoE electives may also be used for a minor. Any remaining Electives for Minor may be used as free electives.
Note that remedial classes cannot be used to satisfy any of the elective requirements. If such courses are needed, the total number of credits to complete the program is increased by these credits. For this program, the following courses are considered remedial: Math courses below the level of Calculus I, English courses below the level of ENGL 1112, Chemistry courses below the level of CHEM 1115, CSCI 1107, and EASC 1103.
In order to assure depth of study, at least five of the elective courses in the program should be at or above the 3000 level and should have prerequisites.
