Refer to requirements relating to Writing Enriched courses.

The degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) is awarded upon successful completion of a course of study in the engineering common core and one of the concentrations described below. The four concentrations in the BSE program are Chemical Engineering (ChE), Civil Engineering (CE), Electrical Engineering (EE), and Mechanical Engineering (ME). Environmental systems electives are available to students with a concentration in Civil Engineering. Computer systems, power systems, and control systems electives are available to students with a concentration in Electrical Engineering.

The program of study for all students enrolled in the BSE curriculum consists of two parts: (1) a common core and (2) a sequence of courses in one of the four concentrations offered by the Department of Engineering. The 74 hours of courses in the common core are listed below; followed by the additional courses required in the respective concentrations.

Advanced Mathematics Elective

Select from the following:


Electrical Engineering concentration students may select the advanced mathematics elective from any MATH 400-level course with the consent of the advisor. Appropriate selection of this elective can enable the student to obtain a minor in mathematics. The ELEN/ENGR electives must be approved by the advisor and may be selected to provide specific studies in computer engineering topics, power engineering topics, and control system engineering topics.

Advanced Mathematics

Mechanical Engineering students select one from the following:


2Humanities and Social Sciences electives must meet the requirements of the Louisiana Board of Regents and of ABET, Inc. A list of the approved electives is maintained by the Department and is given to the student through the advising process. These electives may be taken in any semester. At least three hours must meet the international education requirement. See University Core Requirements listed in this Catalog. ABET, Inc. will not allow skills type courses for Fine Arts, Humanities, or Social Sciences electives. A two-course sequence must be taken in Social Sciences or Humanities.
3Students with an ACT mathematics score of 18 (Enhanced ACT 22) or higher must take the advanced placement test in mathematics to determine placement in MATH 170 and/or MATH 175, or in MATH 190. Those students not meeting the prerequisite requirements for MATH 190 should substitute the lower level math courses for the humanities electives in the first semester of the freshman year and reschedule these electives in later semesters. The advanced mathematics elective must be selected from the approved list available through the student’s advisor. These electives may be specified in some concentrations.
