 While Calculus I (MATH 1441) is 4 credit hours, only 3 credit hours will count toward fulfilling Area A2. The remaining credit hour will be applied toward Specific Requirements.


 The listed courses are recommended in Area D


College credits can be given for high school pre-engineering program Project Lead The Way’s (PLTW’s) Introduction to Engineering Design (IED) course as a possible substitution for Engineering Graphics (ENGR 1133), if the following three conditions are satisfied:

1. student scores 80% or above overall in the course and

2. an approval of the PLTW affiliate director faculty member at Georgia Southern. 


 An appropriate supervised practicum experience/special topic (MFGE 4890 or 4090) can be substituted for one technical elective with the advanced approval of your advisor and the department chair

Other Program Requirements

At least 33 semester hours of approved Engineering courses must be taken at Georgia Southern.
