Justification:

This is a joint program between the Colleges of Engineering and Natural Sciences. These changes are a result of an engineering accreditation review last fall for which we just received the report. A deficiency in curriculum was noted by the accreditation team, and, if a deficiency is not corrected, accreditation will almost certainly not be granted for the degree program.
