The AU Bulletin lists the University Core Curriculum requirements for students in the College of Engineering.  Students must complete a sequence in either Literature or History.  Because of the discipline specific requirements for the Humanities courses, it is recommended that a History sequence be completed in the Social Sciences courses.

Six hours of ROTC required courses can be substituted for the ENGR and one TECH Elective.  Three hours of minor or major required courses in BET, Nuclear, Supply Chain, Computer Science, or Information Systems Management count as one TECH elective.


General Note: Bold classes represent major classes.  Total Hours for degree = 120, (P) Denotes courses required to complete pre-engineeering. 


Grade of C or better is required in these courses.
