Major Selection

All engineering students are enrolled in a common freshman year curriculum with the exception of a second semester science requirement which is program dependent.

By the end of February of their freshman year, all engineering students are required to declare their major field of study, i.e., Chemical, Civil and Environmental, Computer, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering.  Students receive an email notification that they must officially declare their major with the University.  This is an online process.

It must be official

Freshman Engineering Students, you must confirm your major by February 20th. You will receive an email with directions to a website where you will officially confirm your major for sophomore year. It is an easy online process. Even if you are staying in the same major that you believe you have now, it is still necessary that you officially confirm your major. To help you with your decision, faculty members are available to answer your questions about the engineering departments:
