Students are required to participate in the Professional Learning Institute (PLI) program as a requirement for graduation. The program consists of eleven PLI workshops distributed by focus areas as follows: Global and Cultural Diversity (2 workshops), Innovation (2 workshops), Leadership (2 workshops), Civic and Public Engagement (2 workshops), and Ethics (3 workshops). Each workshop is between 1-2 hours long and no outside preparation is required to attend any of the workshops. Attendance at the required workshops may be spread over the student’s four-year program.

2

Students wishing to take CBE 501 instead of MECH 237 in the sophomore year, may take the prerequisite courses of CBE 201 and CBE 210 and count two of the six prerequisite credits toward the Additional Technical Elective requirement.

3

Select at least one course for three credits from the Engineering Technical Electives department list.  Select a minimum of 5 more credits from the Additional Technical Electives list, for a total of 8 credits, with advisor's approval.

4

Only one course in business management or economics at the 300-level may count toward the Technical Elective requirement.

Distinctive Requirements for Degree Program:
TO DECLARE MAJOR: Engineering is a controlled major:  students are admitted into the major only if they meet established academic standards.  Please see competitive major requirements or the advisor in the Department for more information.
TO PREPARE FOR FIRST SEMESTER:   The curriculum for this major assumes students enter college prepared to take calculus.  To qualify for graduation, engineering science majors must achieve a minimum 2.000 grade point average at CSU in all courses in engineering, mathematics, computer science, statistics, physics, and chemistry as well as courses taken as technical electives.  Students are required to participate in the Professional Learning Institute (PLI) program as a requirement for graduation. The program consists of eleven PLI workshops distributed by focus areas as follows: Global and Cultural Diversity (2 workshops), Innovation (2 workshops), Leadership (2 workshops), Civic and Public Engagement (2 workshops), and Ethics (3 workshops). Each workshop is between 1‐2 hours long and no outside preparation is required to attend any of the workshops. Attendance at the required workshops may be spread over the student’s four‐ year program.
