The department requires a grade of C (2.0) or better in Engl 150 and 250 to be eligible for Communication Proficiency Certification. Students satisfying this requirement who are not cited for deficiencies in reports, laboratory reports, or other writings required in other courses, are certified during the semester prior to their semester of graduation. Students not satisfying these requirements are referred to the department’s Academic Standards and Program Quality Committee for corrective action.
^{1}The general education electives are to be selected from the departmentapproved list of courses, subject to department guidelines and are not to be taken under the PNP policy.
^{2}Twelve elective credits scheduled to be taken at the senior year are of three types: (1) Aerospace Program Technical Electives, 3 credits; (2) Technical Electives, 3 credits; and (3) Career Electives, 6 credits. Aerospace Program Technical Electives and the Technical Electives must be chosen from departmentapproved lists for each type. All electives must be chosen following published department guidelines. These courses are not to be taken under the PNP policy.
*Core professional curriculum. A student must have a minimum gradepoint average of 2.00 in this group of courses in order to graduate.
