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.
Students who wish to take the MCAT in their junior year are encouraged to take the required biology elective and the organic chemistry during their junior year. Some may also wish to take an additional biology elective (not required in the curriculum).
