First Year Undergraduate Curriculum

Freshman year curriculum is identical for most engineering undergraduate degree programs. Undergraduate students are admitted to the College of Engineering with a preference for the major noted on their admissions application and follow the same first-year engineering curriculum. The entry-to-a-major (ETAM) process is designed for students to take ownership of their future to identify at least three majors that are a good match for their career goals and academic performance.
