Core Curriculum

The core curriculum concept provides for portability of a basic element of a college degree between higher education institutions. However, certain programs have specific requirements in their programs that must be satisfied for the purpose of accreditation. For a specific program, the core curriculum may look different to most efficiently satisfy both the core and program-specific requirements. For ABET-accredited engineering programs, for example, the math requirement in the core curriculum is best satisfied if the engineering student takes Differential Equations. The program-specific core curriculum requirements presented for degree programs in the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering represent the suggested University Core Curriculum designed for an engineering student to minimize the coursework required. Students who undertake a more general core curriculum may require additional coursework. For example, the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering requires a programming language course so that some 3-hour courses that satisfy the University Core Curriculum may not be acceptable for the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering degree programs.
