Science and Technology

6 hours

In today’s world, students should be aware of the meaning and methods of science and technology, and the ways that both have shaped the world around us. To assure that this is the case, students must take two courses in Science and Technology; at least one must be in the field of biology, chemistry, geological sciences, physics, or CEE 1331, and no more than one may be from the other Science and Technology category, as designated below. Each course must include a minimum of four contact hours per week, at least one of which must be a lab.

The list of science and technology courses offered per term can be accessed at (click on “View Schedule of Classes”).
