4Consists of 12 hours in an application area as specified by the department.
5Selected from: MTHSC 400, 405, 440, 441, 460, or other approved 400-level MTHSC courses.
6Selected from 400-level CPSC courses. One of the two elective CPSC courses must be from 411, 429, 462 and 472.
7Selected from departmental list.


Application Areas

Application emphasis areas currently include Accounting and Finance, Astronomy, Art, Bioengineering, Biological Sciences, Business Applications, Chemistry, Computer Engineering, Decision Science, Geology, Graphics, Hardware Design, Industrial Management, Management Science, Mathematical Sciences, Music, Numerical Analysis, Physics, and Psychology. Other areas can be considered.

Natural Science Requirement

The curriculum requires the physics sequence PHYS 122, 124, 221 and 223, which fulfills the University requirement for a two semester sequence in the same laboratory science. For the remaining natural science requirement, select 6 hours from biology (BIOL), chemsitry (CHEM), geology (GEOL), botany (BOT), biochemistry (BIOCH), biological sciecne (BIOSC), microbiology (MICRO), astronomy (ASTR, must be 200-level or above) and physics (PHYS). Note credit cannot be received for PHYS 200, 207, or 208 since PHYS 122 is already required.

Non-Technical Elective

This requirement may be met by any course that does not have a technical or scientific emphasis. Typical types of courses that meet this requirement include African American Studies, Anthropology, Art, Art and Architectural History, Design Studies, Economics, Education, English, Geography, Foreign Languages, Health, History, Horticulture, Leisure Skills, Music, Psychology, Religon, Sociology, Speech, Theater, and Women's Studies. Courses which include technology in the course description, such as "History of Technology," are excluded.
