ENGINEERING (Bachelor of Science in Engineering)

The professional engineering curriculum emphasizes those subject areas which are common to the broad field of engineering while allowing for the development of professional competence within one of three specific engineering disciplines. The curriculum is also designed to provide for the attainment of cultural and intellectual maturity, the encouragement of personal growth and the development of moral, ethical and social responsibility. The development of broad technical competence within engineering is achieved through a group of mathematics, science, and engineering core courses which emphasize fundamental knowledge, techniques, and processes. Specific professional competence is assured by the completion of a coherent group of courses chosen from civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering. Intellectual, cultural, and moral development is encouraged through the selection of General Studies courses within the curriculum.
 
Flexibility in this program is provided by elective course selection and limited substitutions, individually chosen in consultation with an adviser and approved by the School of Engineering to form an integral professional engineering program. Students wishing to follow careers in other specialized fields, such as architectural engineering, computer engineering, highway engineering, sanitary engineering, aerospace engineering, electronics engineering, nuclear engineering, or other areas will be prepared to do so through subsequent professional experience or graduate study.
 
Satisfactory progress depends upon maintaining a 2.00 minimum grade point average. Students who fail to make satisfactory progress may be advised to register with a reduced course load or to consider other educational alternatives.
 
A student who retains more than 8 hours of grades less than C- on his current scholastic record will automatically have his performance reviewed by the School of Engineering. The school may require that some of the courses be repeated or it may establish alternative requirements. All D- and F grades must be repeated to apply toward graduation.
 
Students enrolled in the professional curriculum must complete a total of 200 quarter hours, including the engineering general studies requirements, the core requirements, the mathematics and science requirements, and one engineering concentration. Senior students are required to participate in the Senior Engineering Tour and are required to take the Graduate Record Examination, (general), and the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam.
 
ENGINEERING GENERAL STUDIES REQUIREMENTS (44 credits)
Although the general studies content within the engineering curriculum is similar to the standard General Studies requirements for the baccalaureate degree at Walla Walla College, there are important differences which must be observed. Engineering students must take ENGL 323 in place of ENGL 223. ENGL 323 is normally taken at the time the student is taking other third-year engineering courses. Engineering students may take upper division classes after completing ENGL 121, 122 and 48 quarter hours of course work.

Complete details of the general studies program for engineering students, including specific course requirements, are available from the School of Engineering.
 
ENGINEERING CORE REQUIREMENTS (48 to 60 credits)
The engineering core consists of a group of studies which emphasize the enduring fundamentals common to the many branches of engineering and the applied sciences. These studies help ensure that the student will enjoy a truly professional career and be prepared to move into new or developing technical areas with confidence. Limited flexibility is provided within the core. However, this flexibility is affected by specific course requirements within each engineering concentration. Students are therefore cautioned to consult with their advisers before selecting these courses.
 
All students are required to present 48 to 60 credits of core courses depending upon the engineering concentration selected. In addition, the indicated minimum requirements must be satisfied within each individual section of the core.
 
In the following listings the symbols CE, EE, and ME indicate the core organization for the civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering concentrations respectively. The letter (e) indicates that the marked course is a possible elective, the letter (r) indicates that the marked course is required for that concentration, and the letter (a) indicates that the marked course may be used to fulfill the engineering core elective.
