Creating Your Educational Plan
The resources below help you plan your coursework to ensure you’re prepared to request placement and to make the most of your UW and College of Engineering experience.
Compare required coursework by major
Each engineering department requires certain courses in math, science, communication, and engineering fundamentals. Depending on your student status, requirements vary:
|Your student status||Required coursework|
|ENGRUD student who entered in Fall 2019||Placement requirements by major|
|ENGRUD student entering Fall 2020 and beyond||Placement requirements by major|
|Prospective transfer student
Current UW student, not Engineering Undeclared
|Application and enrollment requirements by major|
Major requirements and sample 4-year plans
Below are four-year sample plans and overall graduation requirements for each engineering major and links to the UW course catalog for each department. Your actual course schedule will vary, based on your academic background and course availability.
Please check with the specific engineering department adviser or at the Engineering Advising & Student Engagement Center (Loew 014) for most recent materials. Contact information is located at the end of each sample plan.
For help selecting meaningful general education courses that complement the areas of impact you’re interested in in engineering, visit the Engineering Areas of Impact page.
