Engineering Core Requirements (117 credits)

Core engineering classes emphasize development of engineering, science, and critical thinking skills common to the profession of engineering. Some flexibility is provided within the core, allowing students, in consultation with their academic advisors, to select the best courses to achieve their professional goals.

 

All students are required to present 47 to 64 credits of core courses depending upon the engineering concentration selected. In addition, the indicated minimum requirements must be satisfied within each individual section of the core.
