[1] Engineering Pathways is a cohort-based experience. As such, all technical coursework listed in the plan of study must be completed for a grade while enrolled in the program—this includes chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, and engineering. Advanced Placement (AP) or other credit applied toward English, economics, and liberal education courses requires an appropriate substitution to maintain total number of hours per semester.

 

[2] The Introduction to Computing/Computer Science requirement will be selected in consultation with an advisor. Course options vary by majors and minors of interest and include—CIS 121 or 123, CIS 223.
