No. Since there is a common first year (year and a half) program, all engineering students, regardless of their major, will take the same classes during the first year. In addition, the advisors in Engineering Fundamentals meet with students throughout the year to discuss selecting courses and selecting an engineering major.
The first year or year and a half is common for all engineering programs depending on math readiness (see semester schedules above). With the help of an academic advisor in Engineering Fundamentals (firstname.lastname@example.org), students that still have not decided by the time they complete the first year program, may be able to take common classes for another one or two semesters. Note: this may extend the date of graduation depending on which major is finally chosen.
No. Students with Advanced Placement (AP) and/or dual enrollment credits will be placed into the next appropriate class. Any students with AP and/or dual enrollment credits should meet with their advisor to confirm their semester schedule and discuss creating a graduation plan.
If you have advanced placement (AP) and/or dual enrollment credit, you will be placed into the next appropriate course. For example, if you have credit for Calculus I, you will be placed into Calculus II.
Michigan Tech will register all freshman engineering students for their classes in mid-July. Then, during orientation, students will have the opportunity to add or switch classes as needed.
