Major/Program requirements and footnotes:
1 Minumum grade of C-
2 Aerospace engineering majors are not required to take CH 202 (CH 201 lab).
3 Students must have a 2.3 GPA to enroll in this course.
4 One departmental elective must be selected from the following list (when offered): MAE 452, MAE 456, MAE 476 and the following with permission from the instructor: MAE 496 (limited to 3 credit hours), MAE 5**.
5 Ethics course must be chosen from STS 302, STS 304, STS 320, PHI 214 or PHI 375. A course selected from this list will also fulfill a GEP requirement – see below.


* General Education Program (GEP) requirements:
To complete the requirements for graduation and the General Education Program, the following credit hours and co-requisites must be satisfied. University approved GEP course lists for each category can be found at http://oucc.ncsu.edu/gep-courses.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION - 2 hours to be selected from the approved GEP Physical Education list.
a. One fitness and wellness course (any PE 100-level course).
b. One additional credit hour of PE activity courses.
HUMANITIES - 6 credits to be selected in two different disciplines (two different course prefixes) from the approved GEP Humanities list. PHI 214 or PHI 375 taken as part of the Major requirements satisfies 3 credit hours of the 6 credit hours needed to fulfill the GEP Humanities requirement.
SOCIAL SCIENCES- 3 credits to be selected in a discipline other than economics from the approved GEP Social Sciences list. EC 205, 201 or ARE 201 taken as part of the Major requirements satisfies 3 credit hours of the 6 credit hours needed to fulfill the GEP Social Sciences requirement.
ADDITIONAL BREADTH - 3 credits to be selected from the approved GEP Humanities, Social Sciences or Visual and Performing Arts lists.
INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES – 5-6 credits to be selected from the approved GEP Interdisciplinary Perspectives list. STS 302, STS 304 or STS 320 taken as part of the Major requirements satisfies 3 credit hours of the 5 credit hours needed to fulfill the GEP Interdisciplinary Perspectives requirement.

Co-requisites:
U.S. Diversity and Global Knowledge co-requisites must be satisfied to complete the General Education requirements. Choose course(s) that are identified on the approved GEP course lists as meeting the U.S. Diversity and Global Knowledge co-requisites.
Foreign Language proficiency at the FL_102 level will be required for graduation .
