The AU Bulletin lists the University Core Curriculum requirements for students in the College of Engineering.  Students must complete a sequence in either Literature or History.  In order to complete the degree in 122 credits, because of the Mechanical Engineering specific requirements for the Humanities and Fine Arts courses, it is recommended that a two course History sequence (HIST 1010, HIST 1020, HIST 1017, HIST 1027, HIST 1210, HIST 1220 or HIST 1217- HIST 1227) be completed in the Social Sciences.
