I. NOTES (FRESHMAN YEAR):
 
  1. Entering students will be given a placement test in mathematics. Test results will be used in selecting the     appropriate starting course, which may be at a higher or lower level.

  2. To be selected from the University Core Curriculum. Of the 18 hours shown as University Core Curriculum 

    electives, 3 must be from visual and performing arts, 3 from social and behavioral sciences, 6 from U.S.

    history, and 6 from POLS 206 and 207. The required 6 hours from international and cultural diversity may 

    be met by courses satisfying the visual and performing arts, social and behavioral sciences, and political 

    science and history requirements if they are also on the approved list of international and cultural diversity

    courses (see academic advisor for more information).

  3. BMEN, CHEN, and RHEN require 8 hours of freshman chemistry, which may be satisfied by CHEM 101 / 111  or CHEM 107 / 117 and  102 / 112, Credit by Examination (CBE) for CHEM 101 / 111 or CHEM 107 / 117  plus CHEM 102 / 112, or 8 hours of CBE for CHEM 101 / 111 or CHEM 107 / 117 and CHEM 102 / 112.

     (Note: BMEN and RHEN are not offered at Texas A&M University at Qatar.)

 
II. NOTES:
  1. PETE 201 is also required during the first semester of the freshman year.

  2. To be selected from the University Core Curriculum. Of the 18 hours shown as University Core  Curriculum electives, 3 must be from visual and performing arts, 3 from social and behavioral sciences, 6  from U.S. history, and 6 from POLS 206 and 207. The required 6 hours from international and cultural diversity may be met by courses satisfying the visual and performing arts, social and behavioral sciences, and/or U.S.history requirements if they are also on the approved list of international and cultural diversity  courses (see academic advisor for more information).In addition, ENGR 482 must be taken.

  3. Independent study of a petroleum engineering problem, the solution of which will be documented by a     technical paper and an oral presentation.

  4. Select from GEOL 312, GEOP 421, PETE 406 OR 416, or other as approved by the Department Head.

 

* See academic advisor for more information.
**A grade of C or better will be required for the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) Courses (MATH 151 and 152, PHYS 208 and 218, CHEM 107/117
[CHEM 102/112 for BMEN, CHEN, and RHEN majors], ENGL 104, and ENGR 111 and 112), and any other courses designated by the individual engineering
departments. Prerequisites for the CBK courses will not be included in the calculations for CBK grade point average. See descriptions of individual majors and
written requirements available from the departmental offices. (Note: BMEN and RHEN are not offered at Texas A&M University at Qatar.)
