* This course has at least one prerequisite. Check the Course Descriptions section of the catalog to see the course prerequisites.

+ If the placement test score is not adequate for course enrollment, students must complete the appropriate developmental course(s) before enrolling. These courses may increase the total number of program credits. Students should review their math and writing placement with their advisor before planning out their full program schedules.

• If the student places into a higher level math or has completed a higher level math than required by the program, the student may request program applicable course substitutions in consultation with their advisor and faculty to fulfill the remaining credits needed to complete the degree.

Learning Competencies

The program-level learning competencies are:

  • Students will acquire and demonstrate knowledge in math, science, and engineering.
  • Students will develop and demonstrate quantitative reasoning skills.
  • Students will develop and demonstrate problem solving skills in foundational engineering courses (such as Statics, Dynamics, and Thermodynamics).

A general foundation in engineering education consists of two main components: knowledge and skills. Specifically, students in the program acquire knowledge of

  • mathematical and computational tools needed to solve engineering problems
  • laws of mechanics of particles and solid bodies (statics, dynamics, and mechanics of materials), thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and electricity
  • applications of these laws to real-world engineering problems
