The concentration in Engineering equips students with a solid foundation for careers in engineering, to advance the knowledge base for future technologies, and to merge teaching, scholarship, and practice in the pursuit of solutions to human needs. The concentration offers one standard Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) program and nine Bachelor of Science (Sc.B.) degree program tracks. Of these, seven Sc.B. programs in biomedical, chemical and biochemical, civil through May 2016, computer, electrical, materials, and mechanical engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/. Sc.B. degree programs in environmental engineering and engineering physics are also offered, but they are not accredited by ABET. (Note: The civil track has been discontinued for all students entering after fall 2012. Students interested in structural engineering entering in the class of 2017 and beyond may pursue a Structures track within the Mechanical Engineering program.). Other programs leading to the Sc.B. or A.B. degrees in Engineering may be designed in consultation with a faculty advisor. These programs must meet the general requirements for concentration programs in the School of Engineering. Students interested in an individualized program should consult with an Engineering faculty member willing to serve as an advisor and obtain the approval of the Engineering Concentration Committee.

### Standard program for the A.B. degree

Candidates for the Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) degree with a concentration in Engineering must complete at least eight approved Engineering courses. The eight courses must include, and at least two 1000-level Engineering courses. Of these 1000-level courses, one must be a design or independent study course and the other an in-classroom experience. The set of Engineering courses must be chosen with careful attention to the pre-requisites of the 1000-level courses. Please note that not all engineering courses can be used to satisfy the engineering course requirement for the A.B. degree. For example, the following courses cannot be used to satisfy the engineering course requirement for the A.B. degree: ENGN 0020, ENGN 0090, ENGN 0900, ENGN 0930A, ENGN 0930C, ENGN 1010. For this reason, it is essential that the set of courses must be developed through consultation with the concentration advisor.

The A.B. program also requires preparation in Mathematics equivalent to MATH 0200 and APMA 0330, as well as at least one college-level science course from the general areas of chemistry, life sciences, physics, or geological sciences. Remedial courses, such as CHEM 0100, cannot be used to satisfy this requirement. A programming course is also recommended, but not required. The entire program is subject to approval by the Engineering AB Concentration Advisor and the Engineering Concentration Chair.

### Standard programs for the Sc.B. degree

Standard programs for the Sc.B. degree include seven ABET-accredited degree programs: biomedical engineering, and the follwing tracks in Engineering: chemical and biochemical, civil (through 2016), computer, electrical, materials, and mechanical engineering. In addition, unaccredited programs in Environmental Engineering, and Engineering and Physics, are offered. Students may also petition the concentration committee to pursue a 'special' engineering ScB degree of their own design. Students with a special concentration will receive an ScB degree in engineering, but a specific area of specialization will not be noted on their transcript. These programs are described in detail in the booklet, Engineering Undergraduate Programs (available online at

http://brown.edu/academics/engineering/undergraduate-study/program-guide).

Students without one year of secondary school level preparation in calculus should take MATH 0090, MATH 0100 in their first year. These students need to be familiar with multivariable calculus for ENGN 0510, which is often taken during the first semester of the sophomore year. Such students are urged to acquire the necessary math background through self-study, by taking a summer course, or by deferring until additional mathematics has been taken. In addition, all students must successfully complete a minimum of four courses in the humanities and/or social sciences.

The program of each student must be approved by the Engineering Concentration Committee, which issues more detailed guidelines and program suggestions.
