Note: Including university requirements, the above program requires a minimum of 180 credits, an average of 15 credits per quarter for a 12-quarter, four-year program. The 180 credits are based upon the following assumptions:
a. Students have had one year of high school drafting. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to take ENGR 102 Introduction to Engineering Graphics (4).
b. Students will have satisfed University Competencies. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to complete up to six more credits of classes. (See University Competencies in the university's catalog.)

Note: technology majors with applied construction, design, electronic or manufacturing options are not
accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
