|Honors General Chemistry
|Honors General Chemistry I Laboratory
|or CHEM 1114
|General Chemistry I Laboratory
|3000 level or higher elective
|4000 level or higher elective
|4000 level Internship/Research/Advanced Lab course
All grades must be "C" or better. Students majoring in Engineering Science may not earn a degree in Physics.
Students in the Engineering Science program will achieve the following student learning outcomes (SLO):
Student Learning Outcome 1: Students completing Benedictine University engineering classes will demonstrate knowledge in concepts of engineering.
• University SLO: 1. Disciplinary Competence and Skills
Student Learning Outcome 2: Benedictine University engineering science students will demonstrate the ability to solve problems using engineering principles.
• University SLO: 2. Critical and Creative Thinking Skills
Student Learning Outcome 3: Benedictine University engineering science students will be engaged with engineering outside of the classroom.
• University SLO: 3. Communication Skills
Progression in the Engineering Science Program
A student will progress in the Engineering Science program by completing the introductory sequence of PHYS 2211 University Physics I, PHYS 2212 University Physics II, MATH 2210 Calculus I and MATH 2211 Calculus II with a GPA of 2.500 or above and a grade of “C” or better in each of these courses. A transfer student must meet these requirements through equivalent transfer courses. Additionally, a transfer student must earn a GPA of 2.500 or above in all major classes (excluding labs) during the first semester at Benedictine in order to progress in the Engineering Science program. Acceptance into the Engineering Science program does not indicate a student is accepted to the Benedictine University-IIT Joint Engineering Program. A separate application for acceptance into the Joint Engineering Program is required after students have gained admission to the general Benedictine Engineering Science program.
If it is determined at any time that a student cannot progress in the Benedictine Engineering Science program or cannot graduate with an Engineering Science degree, the student will be required to change their major and seek academic advising outside of that program.
