  • DEPARTMENTAL PROGRESSION REQUIREMENTS: In order to progress into 2nd year courses in AME, students must successfully complete (grade C or better) MATH 1914MATH 2924PHYS 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. AP credit is acceptable for any of these required courses.

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.

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.
