Prerequisites

Please note that many engineering sciences courses require prerequisites in addition to those noted.

Unless otherwise prohibited, prerequisites may be taken under the non-recording option. Any course being used to satisfy major or minor requirements beyond the prerequisites, may not be taken under the non-recording option.

Courses used in the major cannot be used to satisfy requirements of the minor. Satisfactory completion of the minor requires a grade point average of 2.0 in the courses suitable for satisfying the minor.
