Most Engineering Sciences (ENGS) courses satisfy requirements for the Engineering Sciences major and can be used for A.B. credit.
The list below shows courses offered during the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 academic years. Not all courses listed are offered each year. Any listed course may be cancelled if the enrollment is fewer than 5 students.
See individual course descriptions for class meeting times, descriptions, prerequisites, instructors, and distributive requirements.
