Notes

  • Nontechnical credits (in red) from SHU Core Curriculum total 36 credits; FYS 125 meets English Composition requirement & EC 202 meets Principles of Economics requirement.

  • Core classes listed in italics are sample options; the order of these could be interchanged.

  • Students still need 1 TLA course.

  • Chemistry department will consider waiving the CH 395 Research Project in place of an Introduction to Engineering course or other applied chemistry elective relevant to the student’s future major.

  • Materials Science Engineering majors would replace Linear Algebra (MA 261) with PY 2XX – Classic & Quantum Waves.

  • Biomedical Engineering majors would need an additional year of Biology & PY 2XX – Classic & Quantum Waves, necessitating either significant AP transfer credit or additional summer course work to complete all requirements.
