A major in Engineering consists of 92 hours and does not require a minor.  If a student chooses a minor, they may not choose Applied Computing Track: Computer Programming, Applied Physics or Math with a Computer Concentration; they may not choose Applied Physics or Math with an Electrical or Mechanical Concentration.

Engineering (92 hours) + Liberal Arts Core (48 hours)

Liberal Arts Core (48 hours)

  • See Liberal Arts Core (LAC) for all bachelor degrees  ; must include the following courses:
  • MATH 221 - Calculus I  

    (Students lacking an appropriate mathematics background may be required to take Math 110 or 111 and/or Math 130  prior to enrolling in Math 221 . These courses do not count towards the hours required in the major.)
  • IMPORTANT DEPARTMENTAL POLICY: A student who has received credit for a Mathematics course numbered MATH 221 or higher may not subsequently take a 100-level Mathematics course for credit.

Foreign Language requirement (hours included above)

Students are required to take a minimum of 3 credit hours but are not required to progress past FL 202 (Intermediate II) if the student places higher than FL 201.  If a student places higher than 202, the student has completed her/his required FL credit.  Note that this placement does not count toward the required 120 hours (may vary according to degree) required of all CSU students.
