NOTES:
  1. Entering students will normally be given placement tests in chemistry, mathematics and English. Test results will be used to select the appropriate starting courses, which may be at a higher or lower level. CHEM 101/111 (4 hr.) or 107/117 (4 hr.) is a prerequisite for CHEM 102/112 (4 hr.); credit for CHEM 101/111 by placement exam is possible for those with adequate background in chemistry.
  2. 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). In addition, ENGR 482/PHIL 482 must be taken.
  3. To be selected from courses at 300-level or above; or any 100–400-level CSCE course (others by petition).
  4. To be selected from CHEN 409, 440, 451, 458, 459, 471, 474, 475, 489; ENGR 385; MEEN 455 and 458 (others by petition).
  5. To be selected from ECEN 215, MEEN 221.

The Safety Engineering Certificate is available for students pursuing this degree.
