Engineering Student Services Team
The General Engineering program is designed for students who are interested in pursuing a course of study whose scope reaches beyond the established curriculum of any single department. The flexibility of the General Engineering curriculum allows students the latitude in course selection needed to educate themselves either in the classical study of engineering or in a self-selected interdisciplinary emphasis area that requires a strong engineering foundation. Examples of some of the emphasis areas pursued by General Engineering majors include chemical engineering, sustainable energy, entrepreneurship, product design, and audio engineering. As a student, you can find more information below that pertains directly to your major.
For additional information on Department Resources please see the General Engineering Academic Advising Resources Page.
GENE Students will automatically be placed on the General Curriculum. Students wanting to do an Individualized Course of Study will need to complete the Individual Course of Study/Concentration form.
Individualized Course of Study is for self-directed, highly motivated students, allowing them to pursue a customized course of study that meets their individual needs and interests. Courses are selected by the student with the advice and approval of the student’s academic advisor.
As curriculum changes between different catalog years, you may question what courses automatically transfer between catalogs. The following changes below apply to GENE majors only and a petition will not be required.
3.5 excess units from a CHEM 124 equivalent course +
0.5 excess unit from a PHYS 131 or 141 or 132 or 133 equivalent course
