The core engineering curriculum consists of the math and science courses that form the foundation for all engineering curricula, as well as the elements of the curriculum that are common to all engineering students throughout all four years. Considerable flexibility within this first two years of the curriculum allows students who are undeclared as to their choice of engineering field or discipline an opportunity to clarify their interests.
