Freshman year (32 credits)
The Freshman year curriculum is the same for all engineering majors. The EGR 110, Study and Careers in Engineering, will discuss the different fields of engineering and will help students decide which field of engineering they wish to study. Students should take this course in their freshman year. The common freshman curriculum is below:
EGR 1101 (1)
TCM 110 (3)
MTH 2612 (5)
CHM 160 (4)
CHM 161 (1)
Total = 17 hours
ENG 110 (3)
MTH 2804 (5)
PHY 2034 (5)
ECO 155 (3)
Total = 16 hours
- A grade of "C" or better is required for graduation in Civil Engineering
- See prerequisite requirements for MTH 261.
- The History requirement is selected from HST 121, HST 122 or PLS 101.
- Prerequisite for MTH 280 and PHY 203 is a grade of "C" or better in MTH 261. Students must make a "C" or better in MTH 280 and PHY 203 in order to enroll in the subsequent math, science and engineering courses.
The remaining three years of the engineering curriculum depends on the major selected. Students majoring in Civil or Electrical Engineering will complete their degree at the Missouri State University campus. Students pursuing other engineering degrees should consult with an academic advisor to plan their second year of coursework at Missouri State University, and to prepare to transfer to Missouri University of Science and Technology (or another university) to complete their degree.
General education requirements – Missouri University of Science and Technology
Each student's program of study must contain a minimum of 21 credit hours of course work in general education and must be chosen according to the following rules:
- All students are required to take one American history course, one economics course, one humanities course, and English 110. The history course is to be selected from History 121, History 122, or Political Science 101. The economics course must be Economics 155 or 165. The humanities course must be selected from the approved lists for Art, English, Foreign Languages, Music, Philosophy, Speech and Media Studies, or Theater.
- Depth requirement. Three credit hours must be taken in humanities or social sciences at the 200 level or above and must be selected from the approved list. This course must have as a prerequisite one of the humanities or social sciences courses already taken. Foreign language courses numbered lower than 200 will be considered to satisfy this requirement if they have a prerequisite (i.e. the second course in the foreign language sequence). Students may receive humanities credit for foreign language courses in their native tongue only if the course is at the 300 level or higher. All courses taken to satisfy the depth requirement must be taken after graduating from high school.
- The remaining two courses are to be chosen from the list of approved humanities/social sciences courses and may include one communications course in addition to English 110.
- Any specific departmental requirements in the general studies area must be satisfied.
- Special topics and special problems and honors seminars are allowed only by petition to and approval by the student's department chairman.
