Elective courses in the humanities are included in each curriculum to make the student engineer more fully aware of social responsibilities and better able to consider non-technical factors in the engineering decision making process. Extensive hands-on laboratory experience leads to required projects for all seniors to ensure professional preparation in the fundamentals of the design process within the real constraints of problem solving.
In addition to required Freshman Year courses and specified courses for each degree program, candidates for degrees in engineering must successfully complete 12 credits from the following:
- THL 1000 - Christian Faith and Life
- One 3-credit Theology course at the 2000 level or above.
- Two additional 3-credit courses chosen from among the following:
- Theology courses at the 2000 level or above
- Any Philosophy course
- Any Peace and Justice course
- ETH 2050 - Eth Trad & Contemp Life
- EGR 2001 - Egr: Humanistic Context
Note: one of these two 3 credit courses must be fulfilled by an Ethics course. Refer to departments' specific lists of Ethics courses for options.
All students select their remaining humanities and social science electives from among the courses listed in the catalog and offered by the departments listed to the right.
Technical Electives for upper class students differ by department. Please visit the individual departmental web sites for more information.
