students studying

The courses presented in the schedules below comprise the core courses in the lower division engineering program. The Two-Year Schedule below is based on a high school preparation of chemistry, physics and four years of college preparatory math. Engineering majors who have not taken the preparatory courses or who do not have "A" or "B" grades in the preparatory courses, may need to use the Three-Year Schedule below. The engineering program is very "full" and frequently students who are fully prepared from high school also use the Three-Year Schedule
