PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING DEGREE PROGRAM IN THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING SECTION in the Undergraduate Catalog 2014-2016

NAME OF CHANGE:
  Academic Change

IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IS YES, THE COLLEGE MUST CONSULT NEAL ARMSTRONG WHO WILL DETERMINE WHETHER SACS-COC APPROVAL IS NEEDED.:

• Is this a new degree program? No
• Does the program offer courses that will be taught off campus? No
• Will courses in this program be delivered electronically? No

EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
  1. CE 314K, Properties & Behavior of Engineering Materials, will move into the 1st semester of the 3rd year of the degree program changing it from basic sequence to major sequence. The CE 314K course number will change since we will be applying for an upper-division number for this course. This is due to the movement in the degree plan of prerequisite courses, EM 319, which is a prerequisite for CE 314K and EM 306, which is a prerequisite for EM 319. EM 306 needs to be moved since PHY 303K, 103M, and M 408D will be prerequisites for EM 306 instead of co-requisites.
  2. CE 319F, Elementary Mechanics of Fluids, will change from major sequence to basic sequence. This course will move into the 2nd semester of the 2nd year of the degree program since it will now be in the basic sequence. This movement is to have this course classification be consistent with the BS Civil Engineering degree.
  3. Mathematics 427K, Advanced Calculus for Applications I, will change from a basic sequence course to an “other required” course. This is changing to be consistent with the course classification in the BS Civil Engineering degree program.

SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):

Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how?
  No
If yes, impacted schools must be contacted and their response(s) included:
  N/A

Will students in other degree programs be impacted (are the proposed changes to courses commonly taken by students in other colleges)?

If yes, explain:

Will students from your college take courses in other colleges?
  no changes

  N/A

Does this proposal involve changes to the core curriculum or other basic education requirements (42-hour core, signature courses, flags)?

  N/A

Will this proposal change the number of required hours for degree completion?
  No
If yes, explain:
 

N/A
