EEE General Education Requirements (18 credits minimum)

The collection of courses used to fulfill this requirement must meet all of the following conditions:
1. Students must select from the list of courses approved by the University Core Council to satisfy each of the Foundational Learning Outcomes listed below. Some courses may have been approved to meet more than one of the Foundational Learning Outcomes, so fewer than six courses can be used to fulfill this condition. There is no minimum number of credit hours needed to satisfy this component of the College of Engineering General Education Program.
- Human Cultures: Humanities (H)
- Human Cultures: Behavior/Social Science (BSS)
