Computer engineering students using catalog year 2013-2014 or later:
ENG1102 is not required for 2013-14 and later computer engineers. ENG1101 students may take it in spring of first year if they wish, and ENG1001 students may take it in the next Fall (3rd semester). If you do/did not take ENG1102 as part of your first-year engineering sequence, you may not take it later on for technical elective credits.
Should you take ENG1102 if it’s not required?
1) If you are certain you’ll stay in computer engineering or a CS or non-engineering major, you will not need ENG1102.
2) If you’d like the option of changing your major to another engineering major in the future, take ENG1102.
3) If you are considering another engineering major, or a double major with EE, or a 2nd degree with BE,ME, etc.. take ENG1102.
ENG1102 will count as a technical elective for CpE’s if you take it in the semester following ENG1101 or ENG1100. You cannot take ENG1102 as a junior/senior for technical elective credits.
Transfer students who came here with 30 or more transfer credits have the option of taking ENG1101 or substituting CpE technical elective credits.
