The first-year engineering courses are CM 1000, ENG 1101, and ENG 1102.
All students have the option to either take CM 1000 Introduction to Chemical Engineering or a core engineering technical elective. We recommend CM 1000 when it can be taken either before or at the same time as CM 2110 Fundamentals of ChE 1. If you have already completed CM 2110, then we recommend a core engineering technical elective instead. The list of approved core engineering technical electives can be found on the Technical Elective Handout .
Transfer students coming in with at least 50 credits and credit for MA 3160 Multivariable Calculus with Technology have the option to either take the first-year engineering courses ENG 1101 and ENG 1102, or substitute courses.
If you are planning to do a substitute course, then see the Chemical Engineering advisor to have the adjustment made to your degree audit.
An acceptable substitute course for ENG 1101 is a programming course (CS 1121 or CM 3450 are approved).
- CS 1121 Introduction to Programming I – 3 credits; the starting point of the computer science program; Fall, Spring, Summer
- CM 3450 Computer-Aided Problem Solving – 3 credits; alternate Fall semesters (even years)
An acceptable substitute course for ENG 1102 is any non-research course on the core engineering technical electives list (found on the Technical Electives Handout). In particular, the courses below are recommended:
- EE 3010 Circuits and Instrumentation – 3 credits; designed for nonmajors; Fall, Spring, Summer
- MEEM 2110 Statics – 3 credits; Fall, Spring, Summer
- ENG 2120 Statics-Strength of Materials – 3 credits; Spring
