Dwight Look College of Engineering
Curricula in Engineering
The freshman year is almost identical for degrees in aerospace engineering, biological and agricultural engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineering, ocean engineering, petroleum engineering and radiological health engineering, thus allowing a student with adequate grades to change majors within the Look College of Engineering. Although listed in eight semesters, most students will change the sequence and number of courses taken in any semester. However, deviations from the prescribed course sequence should be made with care to ensure that prerequisites for all courses are met.
In addition to the listed freshman year, please refer to the specific major curriculum for other requirements.

- Entering students will be given a placement test in mathematics. Test results will be used in selecting the appropriate starting course which may be at a higher or lower level.
- To be selected from the University Core Curriculum. Of the 18 hours shown as University Core Curriculum electives, 3 must be from visual and performing arts, 3 from social and behavioral sciences, 6 from U.S. history, and 6 from POLS 206 and 207. The required 6 hours from international and cultural diversity may be met by courses satisfying the visual and performing arts, social and behavioral sciences, and the political science and history requirements if they are also on the approved list of international and cultural diversity courses (see University Core Curriculum, item 6).
- BMEN, CHEN and RHEN require 8 hours of freshman chemistry, which may be satisfied by CHEM 101 or CHEM 107 and 102; Credit by Examination (CBE) for CHEM 101 or CHEM 107 plus CHEM 102; or 8 hours of CBE for CHEM 101 or CHEM 107 and CHEM 102.
* See University Core Curriculum, item 7.
**A grade of C or better will be required for the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) Courses (MATH 151 and 152; PHYS 208 and 218; CHEM 107 (CHEM 102 for BMEN, CHEN and RHEN majors); ENGL 104; ENGR 111 and 112) and any other courses designated by the individual engineering departments. Prerequisites for the CBK courses will not be included in the calculations for CBK grade point average. See descriptions of individual majors and written requirements available from the departmental offices.
