In order to progress in your curriculum in the Gallogly College of Engineering, and as a specific graduation requirement, a grade of C or better is required in each course in the curriculum, including all prerequisite courses. AME courses are sequential and usually offered only in the semester shown; note prerequisites.

In order to progress into 2nd year courses in AME, students must successfully complete (grade C or better) MATH 1914; MATH 2924; PHYS 2514 and CHEM 1315 with 3.0 Combined Retention GPA, and possess a minimum 3.0 Combined Retention GPA in 24 or more credit hours. 

Two college-level courses in a single foreign language are required; this may be satisfied by successful completion of 2 years in a single foreign language in high school. Students who must take foreign language at the University will have an additional 6-10 hours of coursework.

Courses designated as Core I, II, III, IV or Capstone are part of the General Education curriculum. Students must complete a minimum of 40 hours of General Education courses, chosen from the approved list.
