The College of Engineering Undergraduate Guide provides information about degree requirements as well as important policies and procedures to help you successfully navigate your academic career.

Some policies were temporarily amended for the Spring 2020 semester due to the sudden change in instructional format necessitated by the COVID-19 global pandemic. Please reference the College of Engineering Spring 2020 COVID-19 FAQ to learn more about those temporary amendments.
