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, Sc.B. programs in biomedical, chemical and biochemical, computer, electrical, materials, and mechanical engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Sc.B. degree programs in environmental engineering and engineering physics are also offered, but they are not accredited by ABET. (Note: 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. Engineering students with a particular interest in using their technical skills for the public benefit might also consider the Engaged Scholars Program.

Please note that all student concentration forms must be approved by the Engineering Concentration Committee, which reviews them for compliance with all relevant program and accreditation requirements.

**Mathematics**

Mathematics 0190, 0200 is the preferred sequence of courses to be taken in the freshman year. Students who would prefer a more introductory level calculus course may start in MATH 0100 and take MATH 0200 or MATH 0180 in second semester. Students without one year of secondary school level preparation in calculus should take MATH 0090 , MATH 0100 in their first year, and should begin their sequence of engineering courses with ENGN 0030 in sophomore year. The courses APMA 0330 & APMA 0340 (Methods of Applied Math I, II) can be taken in the sophomore year as well.

**Advanced Placement**

Students who have taken Advanced Placement courses in high school and/or have shown proficiency through advanced placement examinations are often able to start at a higher level than suggested by the standard programs below. However, please note that Advanced Placement credit cannot be used to satisfy any concentration requirements. For example, our Sc.B. programs specify that students must take 4 semesters of math while enrolled here at Brown, beginning with MATH 0190 or MATH 0170. If a student comes in with advanced placement credit (e.g. placing out of MATH 0190 or MATH 0200), he/she is strongly recommended to take a higher level math course as a replacement. Examples of such courses are MATH 0520 (Linear Algebra), MATH 1260 (Complex Analysis), MATH 1610 (Probability), MATH 1620 (Statistics), APMA 1170 (Numerical Analysis), APMA 1210 (Operations Research), or APMA 1650 (Statistical Inference). However, the student with advanced placement credit for MATH 0190 orMATH 0200 also has the option of replacing the math course with an advanced-level science course, subject to the approval of the concentration advisor.

**Transfer Credit**

Students who have successfully completed college courses elsewhere may apply to the University for transfer credit. (See the “Study Elsewhere” section of the University Bulletin for procedures, or contact the Dean of the College.) Transfer courses that are used to meet Engineering concentration requirements must be approved by the student’s concentration advisor, and must be described briefly on the student’s electronic concentration form. Transfer courses that are determined by the concentration advisor to be substantially equivalent to a required Brown course automatically fulfill concentration requirements. In rare cases, students may petition the concentration committee to use courses that do not have an equivalent offered at Brown to meet a concentration requirement. Substitutions of this nature can only be approved if the student’s overall program meets published educational outcomes for the concentration and has sufficient basic science, mathematics, and engineering topics courses to meet relevant accreditation requirements. Students should consult their concentration advisor for assistance with drafting a petition. The decision whether to award concentration credit is made by majority vote of the Engineering Concentration Committee.

**Substitutions for Required Courses**

A student may petition the Concentration Adviser to substitute a course in place of a requirement. Such substitutions can only be approved if the student's modified program continues to meet the published educational outcomes for the concentration, and has sufficient basic science, mathematics, and engineering topics courses to meet accreditation requirements. If the substitution involves taking an equal or higher level course in substantially the same area, whether at Brown or elsewhere, it can be approved by the Concentration Adviser. (For courses taken elsewhere, the credit must be officially transferred.) Students wishing to make substitutions of a broader nature should consult their Concentration Adviser for assistance with drafting their petition to the Engineering Concentration Committee, which may be approved by a majority vote.

### 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 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 prerequisites of the 1000-level courses. Please note that this A.B. degree program is not accredited by ABET.

Not all engineering courses may 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. Therefore, the program of study 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 an Engineering Concentration Advisor and the Chair of the Engineering Concentration Committee.

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

All Bachelor of Science (Sc.B.) program tracks build upon a common core of engineering knowledge and skills applicable across all engineering disciplines. The goal of this engineering core curriculum is to prepared to practice engineering in an age of rapidly changing technology. Two-thirds of this four-year program consists of a core of basic mathematics, physical sciences and engineering sciences common to all branches of engineering, including a thorough grounding in programming and technical problem solving. This core provides our graduates with the basis of theory, design, and analysis that will enable them to adapt to whatever may come along during their careers.

At the same time, the core courses assist students in making informed choices in determining their areas of specialization, at the end of their sophomore year. To this end, first-year students are given an introduction to engineering - featuring case studies from different disciplines in engineering as well as guest speakers from industry. This aspect of the program is different from that at many other schools where students are expected to select a specific branch of engineering much earlier in their academic program.

In addition, all Sc.B. programs in Engineering must be complemented by at least four courses in humanities and social sciences.The minimum four-course humanities and social sciences requirement for the Sc.B. in Engineering cannot be met by advanced placement credit.

**Special Concentrations**

In addition to the standard programs described above, students may also petition the Engineering Concentration Committee to pursue a special engineering Sc.B. degree of their own design. Such special Sc.B. programs are not ABET-accredited. Students with a special concentration will receive an Sc.B. degree in engineering, but a specific area of specialization will not be noted on their transcript. A special Sc.B. concentration is intended to prepare graduates for advanced study in engineering or for professional practice, but in an area that is not covered by one of the existing Sc.B. programs. Accordingly, special concentration programs are expected to consist of a coherent set of courses with breadth, depth and rigor comparable to an accredited degree. A total of 21 engineering, mathematics, and basic science courses are required. The program must include at least 3 courses in mathematics, at least 2 courses in physical or life sciences; and at least 12 courses in engineering. At least five of the engineering courses must be upper level courses, and one must be a capstone design course or independent study, which must be advised or co-advised by a member of the regular engineering faculty. Note that not all engineering courses may be used to meet Sc.B. requirements: for example, the courses not allowed to count toward the A.B., will not qualify. Petitions should be prepared in consultation with an engineering faculty adviser, who will submit the petition to the Engineering Concentration Committee. Petitions must include: (i) a statement of the objectives of the degree program, and an explanation of how the courses in the program meet these objectives; (ii) course descriptions for any courses in the program that are not part of standard ScB engineering concentrations; (iii) a detailed description of any independent study courses used for concentration credit, signed by the faculty adviser for this course; and (iv) an up-to-date internal transcript.

### Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Track:
