The last two years of the program must be developed with the assistance of the designated faculty adviser. The overall program must meet the student's career objectives and must be sufficiently different from the accredited engineering programs so as not to permit incorporation into an existing program. Applied sciences in engineering is not accredited as a professional engineering program; it is an individualized interdisciplinary program that is not subject to professional accreditation.

The minimum degree requirement is 135 credits. In addition to other specific requirements, the following distribution of courses must be completed:

Humanities/social sciences electives: 12 credits

Engineering electives: 10 courses of 3 credits or more

General electives: 9 credits

Technical electives: 33 credits

Some examples of possible concentrations in applied sciences in engineering are listed below. Other fields may be covered to meet the special interests of engineering students. Courses are not offered specifically for this curriculum. Appropriate courses are to be selected from those offered by the departments (see course descriptions at the end of this chapter). Since departmental course offerings may change from year to year, availability of a particular course cannot be guaranteed.

Biomedical Science and Engineering (Premed).This specialty is intended primarilyfor those students who plan to go on to medical school or graduate study in biomedical engineering and who wish to take advantage of the flexibility in curriculum planning that the applied sciences program offers. Engineering electives may be chosen from any engineering discipline, including undergraduate courses offered by the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Engineering Physics.This concentration allows students to combine a background in the basic engineering subjects with the courses of a physics curriculum. It provides preparation for work in a physics research laboratory, for further study in engineering, or for graduate study in physics. The first two years are the same as those in any of the regular engineering curricula, although some substitutions are suggested. The last two years include courses in modern physics, electricity and magnetism, thermal physics, solid-state physics, and partial differential equations. Coupled with these are laboratory courses and other courses in engineering, physics, computer science, mathematics, or other sciences, to be chosen in consultation with an adviser in the Department of Physics. Students in this option generally would simultaneously complete a second major in physics.

Packaging Engineering.The packaging engineering concentration is designed to prepare engineers and scientistsfor a major role in the field of packaging. The program is structured to meet the technical requirements for the development and growth of total packaging systems. (See course descriptions under Ceramic Engineering for information.)
