1
Acceptance into a Department requires that a student have a 2.0 GPA in the prescribed set of courses totaling 31 semester hours in
Engineering Fundamentals. In addition, the student must be in good standing with the university (university GPA ≥ 2.0).
2
This course is a General Education requirement for the program; see http://www.louisville.edu/provost/GER/ for the listing, by
academic year, of Arts/CD/Hum/SBS Electives which satisfy the University-wide General Education requirements.
3
Students completing ENGL 105 in lieu of ENGL 101 and ENGL 102 satisfy the General Education and Engineering Fundamentals
requirements for Written Communication. However, an additional 3-hr Writing (WR) course or honors Written Communication (WC)
course is needed to satisfy program credit hour requirements. A current list of acceptable WR and WC courses is at
http://louisville.edu/speed/academics/advising/ENGL105.html.
4
The CECS Electives must be chosen from the following approved list:
CECS 522, 542, 545, 564, 568 or departmental consent for additional CECS 5XX or 6XX courses.
5
Candidates for the Bachelor of Science degree must be in Good Standing (university GPA ≥ 2.00) and must attain a grade point average
of at least 2.00 for all courses used to satisfy degree requirements.
