Incoming Students – Fall 2014

We are so glad to have you enrolling in the College of Engineering and Science in the fall! Below are a few reminders.

If you are planning on majoring in one of our 8 engineering degrees or 4 science degrees, be sure to visit our Where do I start? Page. This will show you what math course you will begin in based off of your math ACT/SAT scores.

First-Year Engineering Program

Living with the Lab is a hands-on curriculum that takes engineering beyond the books by utilizing a student-owned lab, which includes a microcontroller (Arduino), tools, advanced engineering computer programs (SolidWorks & Mathcad), and much more. All engineering students, regardless of what type of engineering you are pursuing, will take the Living with the Lab series.

Below is the Living with the Lab course schedule.

Honors Engineering Courses

As part of our Living with the Lab program, we offer a few engineering honors courses – ENGR 120, 121, and 122. To be a part of these honors classes, you must meet all of the following requirements:

1.     Composite ACT > 27 or Composite SAT > 1210
2.     Math ACT > 28 or Math ACT > 630
3.     Accepted into the Honors College (Apply to the Honors Program)

[Link for above: http://www.latech.edu/honors/Apply%20to%20Honors.shtml]

The only differences between our honors engineering courses and regulars engineering courses are class size (H-28 students; R-44 students) and group size (H- 2 students/group; R-4 students/group). The same material is covered at the same rate and taught by the same professors in both the honors and regulars engineering courses. They also have the same exams. Some benefits of taking honors engineering courses include registering before other students on campus, more input on projects, and a smaller learning environment.
