REQUIREMENTS TO BE CHANGED FROM WEGR TO A COE MAJOR

  • To become an engineering major, Wanting Engineering students must have an overall grade point average of 2.00 or better, and complete (including transfer credits) the following required courses with a grade point average of 2.00 or better and grades of "C-" or better in each course: MTH 141, CHM 101, 102, PHY 203, 273, and EGR 105.
  • Enrollment in 200-level College of Engineering courses is restricted to engineering majors.
  • A maximum of 3 (three) semesters to demonstrate your ability to continue in engineering is allowed
  • Note: WEGR students are typically not ready to begin in the first required calculus course, MTH 141. As such, WEGR students should expect a five-year plan for graduation based on the various engineering curricula requirements. The WEGR advisor will review this and your options with you.
