UNIVERSITY  DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

Before registering for Arts & Letters courses for requirements, check Course Attributes on Online Catalog to make sure they satisfy the appropriate categories.

 Each student must satisfy the curricular requirements published in the “Bulletin of Information

Undergraduate Programs” and meet all additional requirements (including a minimum of 60 credits at Notre Dame) of Article 15 of the Academic code in order to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Engineering.  These include the University (Arts/Letters) Core, Engineering Core and Program Core. 

University Core 

 • Composition –FYC 13100, Composition

University Seminar* - An intensive writing course required in First Year.  It is offered in a variety of

subjects in the humanities. This course may replace any one of the University core courses except FYC 13100 or the second Theology and Philosophy courses  

Philosophy* - two courses.

Theology* - two courses.

History†* - one course

Social Science†*  - one course

Literature/Fine Arts.*  – one course

Only First Year Students may take 100 Level Courses.  THEO 100/200 and PHIL 10101/20101 must
precede the taking of any other course in these respective areas.

*The University Seminar Course, XXX 180 taken in First Year of Study, may replace any one of the
University Core Courses except FYC 110 or the second Theology and Philosophy courses.

Students who complete the ROTC program may substitute 3 hours of military science for either the history or the social science requirement.

Electrical Engineering Electives (total of 18 credit hours)

Except for the conditions  listed below, any EE or CSE  course at or above the junior  level that is not required in the student's program applies to this requirement.

         -At least one EE elective must be an EE Lab Elective.

          -A maximum of 6 credit hours of undergraduate research may be applied toward requirements.

         -CSE Jr. and CSE Sr. Service Projects are limited to 3 credit hours of EE Elective.
