Choosing a Science Selective Course

To complete First-Year Engineering requirements, you need credit and a grade of C- or higher (if the credit is graded) in any one of the Science Selective courses. Some professional schools have preferences for students who enter their program. In the table below, "preferred" means that the professional school believes that it is better for the student to have credit in the course before entering the school. Note that in some cases a course may be required for graduation from a professional school even if it is only listed as "preferred" for entrance into the professional school.
