    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 pre-tracking chemistry and mathematics courses in their first semester. This is not a degree-granting major. Students should work with their academic advisers to choose a degree-granting engineering major by semester three.

    Recommended Semester Plan

    To remain on track, students must complete the appropriate critical-tracking courses, which appear in bold.

    Undecided engineering students who are ready to begin one or both critical-tracking courses in semester 1 should meet with their academic adviser to adjust the recommended plan of study.
