a. Engineering matriculates must enroll in CHEM 2090 (fall, spring); CALS matriculates must enroll in CHEM 2070 (fall).Students in either college may also substitute CHEM 2150 for CHEM 2090 or CHEM 2070.

b. ENGRD 2020 is required by the major.It is recommended that students take ENGRD 2020 as their second engineering distribution.Students who do so have the flexibility to take any other ENGRD or a 3000 level or higher engineering course (that is not cross-listed as a liberal studies) to fulfill the required credit minimum in the major.

c. In addition to the first-year writing seminars, an engineering communications course must be taken as an engineering distribution, liberal studies, approved elective or major course. An approved COMM or ENGRC course, or BEE 4730, will satisfy this requirement. Students meeting the technical communications requirement with a course that fulfills another requirement (e.g. Liberal Studies, Lab, Design) can use that one course to satisfy both requirements.

d. Choose one of the following biology courses: BIOEE/BIOSM 1610, BIOMG 1350, BIOEE/BIOSM 1780, BIOG 1440, BIOG 1445.Complete before semester 5. If you received a 4 on AP BIO, you will receive 4 credits of intro bio. If you received a 5 on AP BIO, you will receive 8 credits of intro bio and 4 credits will satisfy the intro bio requirement.

e. ENGRD 2700: Basic Engineering Probability and Statistics is accepted (by petition) to substitute for CEE 3040 if taken prior to affiliation with Environmental Engineering, or if necessary because of scheduling conflicts caused by co-op or study abroad programs.A supplemental learning style exercise is required before petition is approved.

f. Students may take BIOMI 2900 General Microbiology Lectures, in place of CEE 4510.

g. The lists of suggested courses are published in the Undergraduate Handbook for Environmental Engineering.At least one design elective must be chosen from the list of Capstone design courses.

h. Students in CALS are required to take BEE 1050 in the Fall of their freshman year.
