Students are admitted to the upper-division program after they have completed an acceptable pre-engineering program. The pre-engineering program can be taken at University of Missouri-St. Louis or at community colleges in the area. Normally, admission is granted to persons who have completed the pre-engineering program with a minimum grade point average of 2.75 over all their mathematics, chemistry, physics, and introductory (statics and dynamics) engineering courses. Students with less than a 2.75 grade point average, but at least a C, in all their science, engineering and mathematics courses may be admitted on a conditional basis.
For more information, please contact the program advisor at (314) 516-7018.
A program of 132 semester hours is required for the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, a program of 122 semester hours is required for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, and a program of 134 semester hours is required for the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, as shown below:
- All majors must complete the University General Education requirements, the Pre-Engineering Requirements and the Core Engineering Requirements.
- All students must first complete J E MATH 3170, Engineering Mathematics, with a minimum grade of C-.
- Mechanical and Electrical Engineering majors must also complete J E ENGR 2300, Introduction to Electrical Networks with a minimum grade of C-.
- A minimum grade of C- is necessary to meet the prerequisite requirement for any course.
Students seeking to major in engineering are first designated as ‘Undeclared with an interest in Engineering majors’ until they have completed Math 1800 Analytical Geometry & Calculus I. Upon successful completion of Math 1800 with a grade of C or better, students will be allowed to declare pre-engineering as their major. Math 1800 must be completed successfully within two attempts.

Engineering Design and Engineering Science Requirements
The number of semester hours assigned to each engineering course in the Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program is further divided into hours of engineering design, engineering science, and basic science content. Engineering topics is the sum of engineering science hours and engineering design hours. The following table shows the design hours and engineering science hours for courses in the engineering programs.
Each engineering student must complete a curriculum that contains at least 48 hours of engineering topics semester hours, including all courses: pre-engineering requirements, engineering core requirements, major requirements, and electives. Civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering majors should consult with their advisers to select electives at the 3000 and 4000 level that include sufficient engineering design and engineering science content to produce the required totals. Transfer courses from other institutions do not necessarily have the same engineering science and engineering design content as their equivalents in the UMSL/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program. Students who include transfer courses in their curricula should consult with their advisers to be sure that these requirements are met.
In addition to the requirements of the University of Missouri-St. Louis that apply to all candidates for undergraduate degrees, the student must earn a minimum campus grade point average of 2.0 and a minimum grade point average of 2.0 for all engineering courses attempted at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

PLEASE NOTE: This plan is an example of what a four year plan could look like for a typical student. Placement exam scores in math as well as the completion of coursework may change the plan. It should not be used in the place of regular academic advising appointments. All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor each semester. All requirements are subject to change.
