If you wish to enhance your education in the area of civil engineering, chemistry, mechanical engineering, or mathematics, you can easily pursue a minor in each discipline with the addition of a small number of courses and by consulting with the respective disciplinary advisor.
Additional coursework is required, if, after you have met the previously described requirements, you have not yet completed a total of 130-136 units of credit.
You may take these remaining courses from any academic areas, using these courses to pursue your specific interests and goals. We encourage you to consult with your advisor to select the courses that will be most advantageous to you. (Please note that you may also use prerequisites or transfer credits as electives if they weren't used to meet major, minor, or liberal studies requirements.)
Our overarching learning goals are stated as our Program Objectives; within three to five years of obtaining a bachelor's degree, a graduate is expected to achieve the following:
- Be employed in the engineering field or pursuing a formal academic program of study;
- Have a demonstrated commitment to life-long learning by participating in professional development activities;
- Be a registered professional engineer or be in the process of becoming a professional engineer;
- Demonstrate leadership through increasing responsibilities; and
- Engage in activities that benefit others outside of their employment.
Be aware that some courses may have prerequisites that you must also take. For prerequisite information click on the course or see your advisor.
- PROGRAM FEE INFORMATION
Program fees are established by the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR). A program fee of $500 per year in students' Junior and Senior years has been approved for this program.
Integrated Undergraduate/Graduate Plan Option
This program is available as an Integrated Undergraduate/Graduate Plan. Integrated Programs provide the opportunity for outstanding undergraduates working on their bachelor’s degree to simultaneously begin work on a master’s degree, allowing them to complete both degrees in an accelerated manner. Students must apply to the master’s program by the application deadline, and meet all requirements as listed on the Integrated Program website to be considered for admission. Admission to programs is competitive. Many qualified applicants are denied because of limits on the number of students admitted each year. Be sure to speak with your advisor regarding your interest in Integrated Programs.
