- Students may not enroll in any engineering course unless all prerequisites have been met with a grade of C- or better.
- Students are required to receive grades of C- or better in any course that is used to satisfy engineering major requirements. Except for Fieldwork (EGC494/EGE494/EGM494), courses taken on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis cannot be applied toward engineering major requirements.

Seniors must register for Senior Design Project (EGE408 and EGE409) during each of the last two semesters preceding their graduation. A single project under the direction of a single faculty member will be spread over the two semesters. This project should provide a meaningful engineering design experience and should draw on the student's cumulative technical background.
Six credits of technical electives are required, which must include at least one upper-division electrical (EGE), computer (EGC), and/or mechanical (EGM) engineering lecture course. Technical electives can also include certain upper-division computer science, physics, and math courses. Students must obtain the approval of their adviser prior to registering for the courses. Pre-approved engineering graduate courses can be used as undergraduate technical electives.
This eight-semester plan (see important details) is intended to guide a first-year student through a four-year undergraduate career, with completion of an academic major and all college-wide degree requirements. The plan is designed as an advising tool – a starting point for careful discussions between a student and his/her academic adviser. In consultation, the student and adviser will adjust the plan to accommodate the student’s prerequisite needs, transferred credits, and other such variables.
Students are responsible for reviewing their Progress Reports each semester to track their own progress toward degree requirements.
