To earn a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in engineering science, a student must earn a grade of "C" or better in all of the courses listed under "Major Program Requirements," under the appropriate "Emphasis Requirements," and under "Other Program Requirements." A lesser grade in any of these courses must be replaced before the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in engineering science will be granted. In addition, lesser grades in any of these courses preclude taking subsequent courses for which the deficient courses are a prerequisite.

Students must also complete the CORE curriculum requirements (see Carroll College 2013-2014 Catalog, pages 87-89).
