Footnotes:

1Required Humanities and Social Science (HSS): 15 credits of approved HSS electives, including three credits of D1 and three credits of D1/D2. At least six credits must be completed from the same department. A current list of approved HSS electives is available on the CEMS Student Services Link out of catalogue site. website.

2Transfer students without applicable transfer credit have the option of either taking ME 001 or replacing the credits with engineering course work at the 100-level or higher.

3Pre-Engineering Technical (PET) requirements: MATH 021 and MATH 022, CHEM 031, PHYS 031 and CS 020. All PET courses must be completed with C- or better before any sophomore engineering courses may be taken.

4ME course 200-level or higher.

5Any 100-level or higher courses in EM and BSAD (except STAT 111 and ME 114); CS 014, CS 016, CS 021, CS 026; or Natural Sciences with approval of advisor.
