Summary of UB Curriculum Requirements

For engineering majors entering UB Fall 2017-Spring 2018

Some required UB Curriculum courses are automatically fulfilled for engineering majors by completion of their required technical courses. To review the UB Curriculum in its totality, please see the University Undergraduate Catalog. The remaining UB Curriculum requirements that students completing an engineering degree need to fulfill are outlined below with links to the current class schedule pages where you will find possible course offerings/class descriptions.

 

UB Seminar
Transfer students entering UB with 45 or more credits earned at a U.S. institution will enroll in the one-credit UB Seminar (EAS 198). All others will take the three-credit UB Seminar. Most first-year engineering majors take EAS 199; Computer science and engineering majors take CSE 199.

 

3 or 1 credits

 

Communication Literacy 1 – ENG 105

*Students with an SAT Reading score >=610, an SAT RT Sub‐Score ≥ 33, or an ACT English score >=27 are considered to have met this requirement.*

*Students who earn an AP English Language and Composition score of 4 or 5 will receive articulated exam credit for ENG 105.*

 

4 credits

 

Communication Literacy 2 – EAS 360

EAS 360 STEM Communication is a requirement for all SEAS majors as well as a UB Curriculum requirement.

Math and Quantitative Reasoning (MQR)

MTH 141 Calculus 1 is required for all engineering majors. This course also satisfies the MQR UB Curriculum requirement.

 

4 credits

 

Scientific Literacy and Inquiry Sequence

Engineering majors satisfy this requirement via completion of PHY 107 and CHE 107/CHE 101. These courses are required for all engineering programs.

 

8-9 credits

 

Diversity Learning Requirement

Students are required to take at least one three-credit course focusing on domestic diversity. Engineering majors are advised to incorporate a diversity course into either the Global or Thematic Pathway.
