The General Engineering major is a specialized program for students who are seeking careers in areas other than traditional engineering disciplines and is open to upper-division students only. In the last two years, most courses are in engineering, usually with a concentration in one branch. Concentrations typically at most schools include aerospace; chemical; civil; electrical; and mechanical. A complete list of concentrations offered could be found in the catalog of the campus you choose to attend. Please note that since the preparation for the major is so extensive, most colleges and universities have modified general education patterns for these majors. Because engineering is a popular major, most schools and colleges have special application deadlines or screening procedures. Below are some examples of the courses required for the major.
