School of Engineering Common First-Year Curricula

All students majoring in a program offered by the School of Engineering (excluding engineering & management majors) take courses that are part of a common curricula during the first year. Therefore, students may defer the selection of a major field of study until the sophomore year. Beginning with the junior year, a significant amount of specialized material is incorporated into each curriculum. In the senior year, coursework is concentrated in the student’s chosen field. Courses in humanities and social sciences are taken throughout the 4-year program as part of the Clarkson Common Experience.

During the first year, students majoring in a program offered by the School of Engineering (excluding engineering & management majors) must complete the following courses:
