The curriculum in this degree program is structured to require that students develop skills and competency in Computer and Information Literacy, as one of the modern engineering tools necessary for professional practice.
1. General Education Content Area requirement for this program; the University-wide General Education requirements are detailed elsewhere in this publication.
2. Progress to the third year of the program requires an overall grade point average of 2.5 or greater and a 2.5 or greater for ChE 251 and ChE 305 combined. Courses in which grades of "D" were received may be repeated according to the regulation governing "Repetition of Courses".
3. Students are expected to have an adequate background in PC applications (word processing, spreadsheets) before taking ChE 251 and 305, and in structured programming before taking ChE 430. Since some students may enter college better prepared than others in these areas, a minimum of 1 hour and up to 3 hours of computer courses will be applicable to this degree. It is the student's responsibility to ensure adequate computer background.
4. Students completing ENGL 105 in lieu of ENGL 101 and ENGL 102 are recommended to take ENGL 303 -Technical Writing.
5. A student may accumulate no more than three "D" grades in ChE prefixed courses. Any additional "D" grades beyond three must be repeated, according to the "Repetition of Courses" regulation. If a student accumulates more than one "D" in any one year of the program, it is strongly recommended that s/he repeat one or more of those courses to earn a better grade before proceeding to the next course in the sequence.
6. Select one course from the following list: CHEM 342, 445, 450, 515, 527, 545, 550, 557, 561, 576 or ChE 402, 532, 550, 551. The course so chosen cannot be a course, or courses, which have been counted elsewhere, in whole or in part, as part of the degree program.
