Class Times

The number or number-letter combination that follows the term abbreviation is explained in the Dartmouth College Weekly Schedule Diagram. The x-period is time set aside for instructors to use as needed. For some courses, the x-period is an additional class session. Laboratory periods typically begin at 1:30pm, although morning and evening sessions may also be held.

Course Times

Course times are indicated for 2 years. Not all courses listed are offered each year.

Check the Dartmouth Timetable of Class Meetings rather then the ORC to confirm the latest information about course meeting times, instructor, etc.

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.

Courses Recommended for Non-Majors

Ideal for non-majors and first-year students exploring engineering, these courses have few or no prerequisites.

Courses for Majors and Minors

Students planning a major or minor in Engineering Sciences should work with an engineering professor to plan their course progression early.

Engineering Sciences Prerequisite

Along with mathematics, physics, and chemistry, engineering students need basic skills in computing.

Common Core Courses

Common core courses emphasize an integrated approach to problem solving and systems analysis.

Distributive Core Courses

Distributive core courses address basic concepts of engineering and help students make informed decisions about their eventual engineering specialties.

Gateway Courses

Gateway courses introduce students to specific engineering disciplines and help them shape their programs around their interests.

Introductory Courses

Introductory courses have prerequisities that are also prerequisites for the engineering sciences major; these courses do not have any ENGS courses as prerequisites.

Upper-Level Courses

Upper-level courses allow majors and minors to acquire depth in their chosen engineering fields.

See Graduate Course list for courses numbered 100 and above.
