Fundamentals of engineering courses –

The Spatial Visualization test must be passed prior to enrolling in ENG1001 or ENG1101.  Take ENG1002 along with your first ENG course if you do not achieve a score of at least 19 on the Spat Vis test.  Transfer students with credit for ENG1101 must pass the Spatial Visualization test before enrolling in ENG1102. (or take ENG1002 prior to taking ENG1102)

Email efadvise@mtu.edu or go to the Engineering Fundamentals Department to take the spatial visualization test:  Dillman 112,   487-3057

Pre-calc students (MA1031, 1032) take ENG1001 in fall, then ENG1100 in spring, then ENG1102 next fall.
