Engineering: Exploring Engineering Studies
This plan is intended for students who want to major in engineering but have not yet chosen a specific discipline or for students who need to take both pretracking chemistry and mathematics courses in their first semester. This is not a degreegranting major. Students should work with their academic advisors to choose a degreegranting engineering major by semester three.

Recommended Semester Plan
To remain on track, students must complete the appropriate criticaltracking courses, which appear in bold.
Undecided engineering students who are ready to begin one or both criticaltracking courses in semester 1 should meet with their academic advisor to adjust the recommended plan of study.
