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. Biosystems Engineering should complete the World History or Technology and Civilization Course sequence to ensure that all SLOs are met by students by the time of gradution.


 ECON 2020 preferred.
