    University General Education

    To satisfy university degree requirements, an engineering student must take a minimum of 18 credit hours of approved university general education courses.

    This requirement may be met with required courses in the curriculum and/or with electives, e.g., humanities and social science electives, which have also been designated as UGE courses. In most instances, courses will be used as ``overlays,'' e.g., to satisfy concurrently a requirement based on accreditation criteria and a UGE requirement.

    Students who have acquired academic credits which are accepted by the university, prior to fall 1997, are not obligated to complete the UGE requirements. Students who pursue and complete their first acceptable credit in fall 1997 or later must meet all aspects of the university general education program.

    The minimum university general education requirements of the college include:

    Humanities and social science: 9 credit hours Must be selected from UGE courses that are also on the engineering approved humanities and social science elective list. A minimum of three credit hours must be taken in humanities and three credit hours in the social sciences, and at least six credit hours of the humanities and social science credit hours must be at the 300 level or above. Natural science: 3 credit hours Unrestricted disciplines: 6 credit hours

    No more than 7 credit hours from a single department. No more than 3 credit hours from the College of Engineering. This course may not be in the student's major unless approved by the Faculty Senate. All courses must be taken for a letter grade.

    For a list of approved university general education courses, refer to the latest Course Schedule or to college advising information.

    In course descriptions, UGE courses are marked with a University General Education course. For more information about UGE requirements, see the Degrees section of this catalog. For a current list of approved UGE courses:
