Additional Notes

CH E 210 & CH E 220: The Department of Chemical Engineering requires that students complete both MATH 231 and MATH 251 before taking CH E 210. Please plan accordingly if you cannot take both MATH 251 & MATH 231 before the 4th semester. Courses require a grade of 'C' or better before enrolling in the next higher course.

CH E Elective: Select from department list.

Engineering Elective: Select from department list. However, some courses on the department list may be controlled by the department that is offering the course and will not be able to be scheduled. Students who complete the Cooperative Education Program may substitute 3 co-op credits for an engineering elective.

Health and Physical Activity Elective: Students who complete the ROTC Program may substitute 3 ROTC credits for the GHA requirement and 3 ROTC credits for a professional elective.

Professional Elective: The six (6) credits of Professional Elective courses are required and should help you toward your career goals. These courses must generally be at the 200 level or above.
