Explanation of Three-Part Course Numbers

The number preceding each course title is divided into three parts. The first two digits are the administrative code (standing for a faculty or a school), the next three digits are the subject code, and the final three digits are the course code.

Administrative Codes

The School of Engineering administrative code is 14. For a complete list of administrative codes used in this catalog, see the beginning of the Programs of Study for Liberal Arts Students section.

Subject Codes

A subject code comprises the third through fifth digits in all course numbers and indicates the subject matter of the course. Courses with the following subject codes are listed in this chapter. (This list does notconstitute a list of majors.)

125 Biomedical Engineering

127 Bioresource Engineering

150 Ceramic Engineering

155 Chemical and Biochemical Engineering

180 Civil and Environmental Engineering

332 Electrical and Computer Engineering

440 General Engineering

540 Industrial and Systems Engineering

650 Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Course Codes

The course code comprises the sixth, seventh, and eighth digits in all course numbers. Course codes from 100 to 299 are used for introductory and intermediate undergraduate courses usually offered in the first two years. Codes from 300 to 499 indicate advanced undergraduate courses normally taken in the junior and senior years. Courses coded from 500 to 799 are graduate courses and are described in the catalog of the Graduate School-New Brunswick.

Two course numbers separated by a comma indicate that each term may be taken independently of the other (example: 14:150:411,412). Two course numbers separated by a hyphen indicate that satisfactory completion of the first term is a prerequisite to the second term (example: 14:332:221-222); the first term may be taken for credit without taking the second, except where a statement is added to indicate that both term courses must be completed in order to receive credit.

Credits awarded for the successful completion of each course are indicated in parentheses following the course title. The notation BA indicates that the number of credits is determined by arrangement with the department offering the course.

Unless otherwise indicated, a course normally meets for a number of lecture hours equal to the number of credits to be earned. Special hours or modes of class, other than lecture, are usually indicated in italics below the course title.

Consult the Undergraduate Schedule of Classesfor the name(s) of the faculty member(s) teaching each course.
