DOCUMENTS OF THE GENERAL FACULTY

PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE ENGINEERING ROUTE TO THE
BACHELOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION DEGREE IN
THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006

Dean George Gau of the Red McCombs School of Business has filed with the secretary of the Faculty Council the following proposed changes to the engineering route to the bachelor of business administration in the Red McCombs School of Business chapter in The Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006. The faculty of the school approved the proposed changes on October 29, 2003. The dean approved the changes and submitted them to the secretary on November 7, 2003. The secretary has classified this proposal as legislation of exclusive application and primary interest to a single college or school.

The edited proposal was received from the Office of Official Publications on December 5, 2003, and was sent to the Committee on Undergraduate Degree Program Review from the Office of the General Faculty on December 11, 2003. The committee forwarded the proposed changes to the Office of the General Faculty on February 26, 2004, recommending approval. The authority to grant final approval on behalf of the General Faculty resides with the Faculty Council.

If no objection is filed with the Office of the General Faculty by the date specified below, the legislation will be held to have been approved by the Faculty Council. If objection is filed within the prescribed period, the legislation will be presented to the Faculty Council at its next meeting. The objection, with reasons, must be signed by a member of the Faculty Council.

To be counted, a protest must be received in the Office of the General Faculty by noon on March 5, 2004.


<Signed>

Sue Alexander Greninger, Secretary
The Faculty Council


This legislation was posted on the Faculty Council Web site (http://www.utexas.edu/faculty/council/) on February 27, 2004. Paper copies are available on request from the Office of the General Faculty, FAC 22, F9500.

PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE ENGINEERING ROUTE TO THE
BACHELOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION DEGREE IN
THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006


On page 50, under the heading DEGREES, in the section PROGRAM DEGREE REQUIREMENTS, in the Red McCombs School of Business chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-2004, make the following changes:


ENGINEERING ROUTE TO THE BACHELOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

{No changes to the two introductory paragraphs.}

The requirements of this program are

1. The Bachelor of Business Administration degree requirements on pages 47-49, with the following exceptions:
a. Students in this program must take Mathematics 408C and 408D or Mathematics 408K, 408L, and 408M.
b. To fulfill the requirement of six semester hours in natural science, students in this program must take Physics 303K and 303L.
c. Management 335 is required as the upper-division management core course.

2. The following business courses: Management 367 and 374.

3. The following nonbusiness courses: Chemistry 301, Mechanical Engineering 210, and Physics 103M and 103N.

4. Mathematics 427K or Philosophy 313K.

5. Twelve semester hours of coursework, at least six of which must be upper-division, chosen from one of the engineering block options below.

6. Nine semester hours of coursework, at least six of which must be upper-division, chosen from one of the business block options on pages 51-52.

7. A three-semester-hour business elective.

[7.] 8. Additional elective coursework, if necessary, to provide a total of at least [122] 121 semester hours.



RATIONALE: Business students are required to complete a minimum of 48 semester hours to earn a BBA. The removal of Finance 354 from the business core reduced the number of business hours in this degree plan to 46. The addition of a business elective is required for the ERB degree plan to meet the school requirements.

Deletion of BA 102 lowered the total number of hours for this program to 121.


ENGINEERING BLOCK OPTIONS

[Manufacturing] Operations Engineering

Architectural Engineering 323K, Project Management and Economics
Mechanical Engineering 205, Computers and Programming, and 218,
Engineering Computational Methods

Mechanical Engineering 311, Materials Engineering
[Mechanical Engineering 326, Thermodynamics]
Mechanical Engineering 324, Kinematics and Dynamics of Mechanical Systems
[Mechanical Engineering 352K, Engineering Computer Graphic]
[Mechanical Engineering 365L, Industrial Design for Production]

2980


Mechanical Engineering 366L, Operations Research Models
Mechanical Engineering 367S, Simulation Modeling
[Mechanical Engineering 368J, Computer-Aided Design]
Mechanical Engineering 373K, Basic Industrial Engineering
[Mechanical Engineering 375K, Production Engineering Management]


RATIONALE: Name change: This title is more appropriate to the focus that the block has taken and in response to the lack of manufacturing classes due to loss of faculty in the OM section of the ME department.
Removal of ME 352K, 365L and 368J: These are drafting oriented courses. These skills are unnecessary for operations engineering.
Removal of ME 375K: According to Dr. Bard in the ME department, this course will no longer be taught.
Removal of ME 326: This course is not central to the discipline of operations engineering.
Addition of ARE 323K and ME 324: The content of these courses is more relevant to the work students will be doing in operations management.
Addition of ME 205 and 218: ME 205 is a prerequisite for ME 366L; adding this course to the list will encourage the students to take the ME 366L which is a very beneficial class. The ME 218 complements the knowledge in ME 205 and the two courses together will count as one lower-division course. Billy Wood has approved admission to these courses in ME.


{No changes to Mechanical Systems, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Electrical Engineering.}

BUSINESS BLOCK OPTIONS
