Engineering & Applied Sciences

BA in Engineering Science

Degree Requirements

Prerequisites (6 courses)

Mathematics (3 Courses including Differential Equations)

Note: the sequence MTH 141, MTH 142 and 143 counts as only two courses for the degree.

Physics (2 courses)

Chemistry (1 Course)

Required Hajim School Courses

Choose three, one from each group:

Core Hajim School Courses

Choose one course from any two categories below:

Hajim School Electives (Choose 4)

Any four 4-credit Hajim School course except those listed above as required or core courses. These courses should be chosen in consultation with a faculty adviser, and may include upper-level writing courses. At least one of the courses should be 200-level.

Natural Science Electives (Choose 2)

Any two 4-credit courses in astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth and environmental sciences, mathematics, physics, or statistics except those listed above as prerequisite courses.

Two Clusters

ES degree candidates must possess a thorough understanding of social and economic forces, and have an appreciation of cultural and humanistic traditions. Therefore, all engineering science students are required to complete minimally two clusters, one in the humanities and one in the social sciences. The possibilities of coupling the engineering science major with humanities and social science disciplines are boundless, and prepare students to address the complexities of the world in which we live.

Writing (3 Courses)

The ability to communicate clearly and effectively is extremely important in engineering. All students are advised to complete the College’s primary writing requirement (WRT 105) by the end of their first year. The engineering science upper-level writing requirement will be met by satisfactorily completing two of the following Hajim School courses:

Should any department in the College offer a generalized technical writing course, pending review of the course description, this course would also be acceptable for this requirement.
