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.  Because of the disciple specific requirements for the Humanities courses, it is recommended that a History sequence be completed in the Social Sciences courses.


Technical elective are chosen from a list of coordinated cross-disciplinary sequences.  Sequences other than those specified must be approved by the material engineering curriculum committee.
