Engineering Marketable Skills are based on required objectives from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). ABET accredits 4-year engineering schools, so all engineering schools must establish they meet these objectives (among others).

Marketable Skills

1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

2. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

3. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

4. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

5. An ability to communicate effectively

Semester I

ENGR 1201 Introduction to Engineering 1
All engineering courses require a mimimum of Math 1314 (College Algebra) or equivalent. Speak with an advisor for details, including information about math placement. All courses in the degree plan must be completed with a C or better. All first time in college students are required to complete a Learning Framework Course. Students who are TSI exempt or must complete one section of developmental education should enroll in PSYC 1100 or EDUC 1100. All other first time in college students should enroll in PSYC 1300 or EDUC 1300. See your advisor for more information. PSYC/EDUC 1100 is a one-hour course, and PSYC/EDUC 1300 is a three-hour course, which makes the total number of hours required 61 or 63 hours respectively.
