CHANGES TO THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN AEROSPACE ENGINEERING IN THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING CHAPTER OFTHE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2006-2008

On page 145, under the heading DEGREES, in the College of Engineering chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN AEROSPACE ENGINEERING

{no changes to introductory paragraphs}

 CURRICULUM

Course requirements are divided into three categories: basic sequence courses, major sequence courses, and other required courses. Enrollment in major sequence courses is restricted to students who have received credit for all of the basic sequence courses and have been admitted to the major sequence by the College of Engineering Admissions Committee. (Requirements for admission to a major sequence are given on pages 134-135.) Enrollment in other required courses is not restricted by completion of the basic sequence.

Courses used to fulfill technical and nontechnical elective requirements must be approved by the aerospace engineering faculty before the student enrolls in them. Courses that fulfill the social science and fine arts/humanities requirements are listed on pages 142-143. The student must take all courses required for the degree on the letter-grade basis and must earn a grade of at least C in each course. The only exceptions to this policy are the fine arts/humanities and social science electives. They may be taken on the pass/fail basis if the student meets the University requirements for pass/fail registration; these requirements are given in General Information.

Rationale: Clarification of Mission.

On page 183, under the heading COURSES, in the College of Engineering chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:

DEPARTMENT OF AEROSPACE ENGINEERING and Engineering MECHANICS

Unless otherwise stated below, each course meets for three lecture hours a week for one semester.

Students should note that all prerequisite courses for the following courses must be completed on the letter-grade basis with a grade of at least C.

Rationale: Clarification of requirements.
