Faculty Requirements for all BSc in Engineering Programs

Course requirements for Engineering programs are listed in First-Year Program  and Required Courses and Suggested Course Sequence for Traditional Programs through Required Courses and Suggested Course Sequence for Co-op Programs (Second-Year and beyond). All Engineering programs include ENGG 400 , ENGG 404 , MATH 201 , MATH 209 , one of ENG M 310  or ENG M 401 , an ITS elective as described in Impact of Technology on Society (ITS) Elective , and a capstone design course. 

All engineering programs must also include at least three units at the 200-level in each of at least three of the following five areas: (1) Strength of Materials, (2) Thermodynamics, (3) Materials Science, (4) Fundamental Electrical Engineering, and (5) Engineering Mechanics (Dynamics).

Required Courses and Suggested Course Sequence for Traditional Programs

The required program of studies leading to the various BSc in Engineering degrees (traditional programs) are noted below. While all courses listed below are compulsory, the sequencing of courses may differ. All programs require Departmental approval.

Engineering Chart 1 details a suggested course sequence for each Engineering degree program by year and term. Course numbers are followed by the hours of instruction in parentheses. The first number indicates lecture hours, the second number seminar hours, and the third number laboratory hours. Laboratory hours often appear as two numbers separated by a slash, which indicates hours and weeks (e.g., the expression 3/2 means 3 hours of laboratory every second week).

Note: For further descriptions of the requirements on the Program Electives, see fields of study . For information on Complementary Studies Electives, Impact of Technology on Society (ITS) Electives and English Electives see Complementary Studies Electives [Engineering] .

Required Courses and Suggested Course Sequence for Co-op Programs

The required program of studies leading to the various BSc in Engineering degrees (Cooperative Education programs) are noted below. While all courses listed below are compulsory, the sequencing of courses may differ. All programs require Departmental approval.
