COLLEGE OF EDUCATION UNDERGRADUATE TEACHING ASSISTANT (UTA) Program

UNDERGRADUATE UTA INFORMATION AND APPLICATION

The Undergraduate Teaching Assistant (UTA) Program is provided by the College of Education. Selected students work with a faculty mentor and provide TA services while they learn about teaching. Students earn credits through EDUC 388T - Special Topics in Education: Guided Experiences in College Teaching (3 credits) and EDUC 498 - Special Problems in Education (1 credit). The UTA splits time between working with the faculty member as a TA (about 8-10 hours per week) and the seminar meetings for EDUC 388T, with the grade for EDUC 498 provided by the supervising faculty mentor at the end of the enrolled semester. The EDUC 388T class meets two hours each week, and the first session serves to orient the UTAs in their new role at the beginning of the semester. (Details will be individually communicated to students who are selected for the program).

Official guidelines about UTAs and working with UTAs have been developed by the Office of Undergraduate Studies and can be found here.

Being selected as a UTA is both an opportunity for significant personal growth and an honor. To qualify, students must meet the following criteria:

  1. Have junior standing by the beginning of the semester
  2. Have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0
  3. Have earned a grade of A in the course in which assisting

Beyond these requirements, the only thing necessary is a mutual agreement of the faculty mentor/instructor and the prospective UTA. We hope you will help identify students and faculty who may want to participate in this program.

The faculty mentor is asked to submit the following: student name and UID; course for which the student will perform UTA duties; letter of support verifying that the faculty mentor has reviewed the student's transcript, has confirmed the criteria above, and is willing to support the student as a UTA for the enrolled semester. Space is limited; early applications are encouraged. If you have any questions please contact the Office of Student Services, 1204 Benjamin (301-405-2364; ([email protected]).

University Catalog

Overview

Engineering combines science and mathematics to economically use information, materials and forces of nature to solve real world problems that improve the world around us and touch the lives of all of humanity. Engineers are able to take an abstract thought or idea and make it a reality. Students in the College of Engineering are changing the world as they work with award-winning faculty in state-of-the-art facilities to acquire the knowledge and skills they’ll need to start tackling important problems and developing innovative technology.

For more than 50 years, the College of Engineering at UT Arlington has helped set the standard for educational excellence. With 7 departments, 10 bachelor's, 14 master's and 9 doctoral degrees, more than 6,000 students and 24,000 alumni, it is the fourth-largest college of engineering in the state, providing the local, regional, and national workforce with motivated and highly skilled graduates. UT Arlington is classified as a Research University / High Activity by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Faculty research expenditures are more than $37 million per year. The College has active research grants from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Departments of Defense and Energy, NASA, DARPA, and the American Heart Association, among others, in key areas such as healthcare, security, energy, and environment. The University recently invested $160 million to construct an additional 295,000 square feet of engineering facilities. This brings the college’s total footprint to 417,359 square feet in seven buildings, including the new 234,000-square-foot Engineering Research Building.

Undergraduate Education:

The College of Engineering provides the opportunity for study in a wide variety of engineering disciplines under the guidance of an excellent faculty. Baccalaureate degree programs are offered in aerospace engineering, architectural engineering, bioengineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and software engineering. The programs in aerospace engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and software engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The program in computer science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET.  Graduate degrees are offered in each of these disciplines and in another area of specialization:  materials science and engineering. (All of these graduate programs offer both master's and doctoral degrees except software engineering, engineering management, logistics, and systems engineering, which offer a master's degree only.) A combined BS (Biology)/MS (Biomedical Engineering) degree is available for students interested in tissue engineering and biotechnology; see the Other Engineering Subject Areas section and the Biology section of the Undergraduate Catalog and the Biomedical Engineering section of the UT Arlington Graduate Catalog for details.  There are several Fast Track Programs in the college of engineering where seniors with outstanding academic background may begin taking graduate classes for dual credit while still being undergraduates. More details on the Fast Track Programs are provided in a later section. 

Preparation in High School for Admission to the College of Engineering

For students intending to pursue a major in engineering, the recommended curriculum is defined by the "Recommended Texas High School Program Graduation Requirements" approved by the State Board of Education beginning with School Year 2004-2005. This listing below reflects the current State Board recommendation and expands upon the University requirements stated earlier in this catalog:

In addition to the above, an additional year of advanced mathematics such as calculus is strongly recommended. Further, students planning careers in the health professions or biomedical engineering should take one year of biology. In all areas, students are urged to take advantage of advanced placement opportunities and honors programs. A student who enrolls without having completed the above courses will not be optimally prepared, and the duration of the student's undergraduate program will likely be extended. In particular, the engineering programs offered by the college are based upon a student being fully prepared to begin study with the following courses:

Prerequisites for the above courses are considered deficiencies and are not counted toward an engineering degree.

Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission to the College of Engineering is based on the University's undergraduate admission requirements plus the following additional admission criteria for the College of Engineering.

Students Entering Directly from High School

Students entering directly from high school or with less than 24 hours of transfer credit will be evaluated on the basis of the following admission criteria:

  • meeting the UT Arlington admissions requirements.
  • presenting a satisfactory SAT or ACT score (successful applicants typically have an SAT score of 1200 or higher or a composite ACT score of 27 or higher).
  • completing the prerequisites necessary to enroll in MATH 1426 CALCULUS I.

Students for whom English is the primary language must present a minimum of two high school units in a single foreign language. Students otherwise qualified, but not presenting such credit, will be admitted with a foreign language deficiency that must be removed prior to graduation.

Students entering directly from high school or with less than 24 hours of transferrable credit will initially be advised by the University College. Transitioning to advisement by the College of Engineering advisors will occur as the student accomplishes certain GPA and course completion milestones.

Students Entering with Transfer Credit

Transfer students include those from other units within UT Arlington as well as those from other educational institutions. Transfer students from outside UT Arlington must furnish an official transcript (or copy) to the Dean of Engineering and/or department to which they are applying to permit an evaluation of all college level work completed. Transfer students with less than 24 hours of transferable credit are admitted under the criteria for students entering directly from high school.

Transfer students with 24 hours or more of transferable credit will be evaluated on the basis of the following admission criteria:

  • meeting the UT Arlington admissions requirements.
  • completing at least the prerequisites necessary to enroll in MATH 1426 CALCULUS I.
  • having a GPA of 3.0 or above calculated on transferred credits applicable to the degree they are seeking.
  • complying with the C-grade rule. (See Academic Regulation 5 below.)   Consequently, the student must be prepared to repeat any such courses until a grade of C or higher is obtained prior to enrolling in any course for which such courses are a prerequisite.   Note: this applies to all transfer students whether from other educational institutions or from within UT Arlington.

Students for whom English is the primary language must present a minimum of two high school units in a single foreign language. Students otherwise qualified, but not presenting such credit, will be admitted with a foreign language deficiency that must be removed prior to graduation

Advising

Students entering directly from high school and those with less than 24 hours of transferrable credit are advised initially in the University College.   Students are transitioned to advising in the College of Engineering as they progress successfully in their degree programs.

Students with 24 hours or more of transferrable credit are advised in the College of Engineering.   New transfer students who are undecided about their engineering major or who are conditionally admitted are advised in Engineering Student Services; others are advised in their major department.   New students, when reporting for advising, must have a transcript (original or copy) of high school work, a transcript (original or copy) of any college transfer credit applicable to an engineering degree, and a copy of SAT or ACT scores that have been used as a basis for admission.  New students will not be able to register for classes without first being advised and obtaining an approval to register.

Continuing students in all engineering majors must receive advising by their major departments before registering.   One period in October and another in March are designated for preregistration advising.  Students must be cleared (showing that they have been advised) before proceeding with registration.

The advising goal for students who have not yet attained professional program status is to strengthen their academic background sufficiently so that they are able to subsequently complete courses in their engineering degree plans. To this end, a student's advisor may require him or her to enroll in fewer courses than specified by the University and may require him or her to take courses for which credit has already been received.  See individual department program descriptions for requirements.

The College of Engineering's Engineering Student Services, located in 242 Nedderman Hall, houses the Co-op program and coordinated tutoring, assessment, and academic advising for engineering students.

Admission into the Professional Program

Students who have successfully completed the initial program of studies may apply to their department for advancement to the professional program. Prior to admission to the professional program, students are required to demonstrate their intellectual talent, work habits, and professional ethics to warrant acceptance for study toward an engineering or computer science degree.

Hereafter, the term "pre-professional courses" is used for courses required in the first two years of the degree program as specified by the department, and the term "professional courses" is used for courses required in the third and fourth years of the degree program. The professional program includes students who have been accepted by an engineering department into the professional program course sequence. An official degree plan is filed upon acceptance into this category. For advancement to a department's professional program, students must meet the following requirements:

1. Academic performance: Students must have completed all pre-professional courses with a grade of C or better, complied with the Three-Attempt Rule, and achieved a minimum three-calculation GPA as specified by the department. Refer to the College of Engineering Academic Regulations and individual department program descriptions for specific requirements in the desired program.

2. Limitations on Enrollment: The University and the College of Engineering reserve the right to limit enrollment in any program, based on the availability of facilities and staff. To achieve such limitations, grade point averages and other measures of student potential beyond the minimum stated above may be applied.

Competence in Oral Communication and Computer Use

Students in engineering satisfy the oral communication requirement by successfully completing COMS 2302 PROFESSIONAL AND TECHNICAL COMMUNICATION FOR SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING. The various programs in the College of Engineering have different requirements for demonstrating computer literacy. Students should consult their particular degree program for details.

College of Engineering Academic Regulations

All students pursuing a degree in one of the College's academic programs must abide by the academic regulations of the University and the following additional rules established by the College of Engineering:

Regulations regarding work at other institutions

1. Enrollment in Other Institution(s): To ensure adequate coverage of needed material, once enrolled at UT Arlington as an engineering major, a student must obtain written permission from the department before enrolling in courses intended to be transferred to UT Arlington for credit toward a UT Arlington engineering degree.

2. Transfer Courses: Only equivalent courses in a program accredited by ABET, Inc. (formerly the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) or those freshman and sophomore courses accepted by the College of Engineering or the student's major department can be counted toward an engineering degree.

3. Validation of Transfer Credit: Transfer credit that constitutes a part of a continuing course sequence in the same area will be validated only upon satisfactory completion of the succeeding course in the sequence at UT Arlington. Students whose performance in the subsequent courses at UT Arlington is poor may be required to repeat courses taken elsewhere.

Regulations regarding work at UT Arlington

4. Academic Honesty: The College of Engineering takes academic honesty and ethical behavior very seriously. Engineers are entrusted with the safety, health, and well being of the public. Students found guilty of academic dishonesty will be punished to the full extent permitted by the rules and regulations of UT Arlington.   In particular, a student found guilty of a second offense by the Office of Student Judicial Affairs will be subject to dismissal from the College of Engineering.

5. C-Grade Rule: A grade of D or lower in a pre-professional course indicates unsatisfactory preparation for further engineering education. Any such course in which a D or lower is received must by repeated before enrolling in any course for which it is a prerequisite. This requirement is subject to the Three-Attempt Rule. A student unable to raise his or her grade to at least a C in a pre-professional course within three enrollments (attempts) shall be required to change his or her major to a field outside of the College of Engineering.

6. English as a Foreign Language: Courses in English as a foreign language will not substitute for either ENGL 1301 RHETORIC AND COMPOSITION I or ENGL 1302 RHETORIC AND COMPOSITION II.

7. Foreign Language Deficiency Removal: Students admitted to the College of Engineering with a deficiency in foreign language must remove that deficiency prior to graduation by taking two courses in a single modern or classical language totaling not less than six semester hours credit (eight semester hours are required in the current UT Arlington introductory modern and classical languages sequence).

8. Academic Load: A student may not enroll in more than the University's maximum permitted academic load without receiving the permission of the student's department and the Dean of Engineering. The College of Engineering considers 12 semester hours in the fall and spring terms and nine semester hours in the 11-week summer term to be a minimum "full load" for undergraduates.

9. Three-Attempt Rule: A student may not attempt a course (at UT Arlington and/or at any other institution) more than three times and apply that course toward an engineering degree. Enrollment in a course for a period of time sufficient for assignment of a grade, including a grade of W, is considered an attempt.

Regulations regarding academic standing

10. Three-Calculation GPA: The College of Engineering uses three GPA calculations to evaluate students for admission and continuation. These calculations employ only the grades received in courses that are applicable to the engineering degree being sought. Any references in this catalog to the three-calculation GPA requirement mean that the student's GPA must meet or exceed the requirement in each of the following three categories:

  • all courses
  • all math, science, and engineering courses, and
  • all courses, if any, taken in the major subject. (The college will use the University's current grade-repeat policy or grade-exclusion policy in determining the three-GPA calculations.)

11. Satisfactory Academic Standing: An engineering student is in satisfactory academic standing if the student is not on University probation and at the same time meets the GPA requirements of his/her major program. (See the major department section of the catalog for the requirement.)

12. College of Engineering Probation: Students in an engineering pre-major or classified Undecided Engineering (UENG) will be placed on College of Engineering probation if any of the three parts of their three-calculation GPA falls below their program's requirement for advancement to the professional program. Students in an engineering major will be placed on College of Engineering probation if their major GPA or overall GPA falls below their program's requirement for graduation (2.0 for all programs). A student's academic standing is determined as soon as grades are reported by the Registrar at the end of each semester. Depending on the circumstances, a student on College of Engineering probation may have restrictions on course load or course selection, may be given specific course grade requirements, and ultimately may be required to change his/her major to one outside of the College of Engineering.

Fees

In addition to fees applicable to the entire University, each engineering course carries a "designated tuition" charge (authorized by the Board of Regents per statute 54.0513) detailed under Description of Tuition and Fees .

Minors in the College of Engineering

A number of the undergraduate programs in the college of engineering offer students in other disciplines the opportunity to earn a minor. In most cases the a student has to complete 18 hours of course work as designated by the program to earn a minor. In many cases some of the courses in the minor may be used as an elective in the program the student is majoring in.

Requirements for an "Engineering Math Minor"

The Mathematics Department supports an “Engineering Math Minor” available to students with a major in the College of Engineering.   For specific requirements, please see the departmental advisor in the major program.

Undergraduate Certificates in the College of Engineering

Undergraduate certificates in areas of specializations are offered in the College of Engineering. These certificates include a Certificate in Nanotechnology and a Certificate in Unmanned Vehicle Systems. Typically students have to complete between 12 to 15 hours of course work as detailed in the requirements for specific programs to earn a certificate. These certificates can be earned by either students who are currently pursuing their undergraduate degree at UT Arlington or by students who are enrolled in other institutions or students who have already completed a degree in another institution and wish to specialize in a new field. More information about the certificates offered in the College of Engineering is provided in individual department sections of the catalog as well as in the web pages of the respective departments offering the certificates.

Honors Degrees in Engineering

College of Engineering students who wish to graduate with an Honors Degree in Engineering must be members of the Honors College in good standing. They must complete the major degree requirements and the requirements of the Honors College, which include at least 24 hours of Honors course work while maintaining an overall GPA of 3.0 or greater. Honors Degree requirements are compatible with all departmental and college requirements, but specific requirements vary with each engineering department's program. It is particularly important that students pursuing an Honors Degree in Engineering consult carefully with an advisor in the College of Engineering and also in the Honors College before each registration to be sure all requirements are met.

Fast Track Master's Degrees in Engineering

The Fast Track Program enables outstanding UT Arlington senior undergraduate students in several disciplines to satisfy degree requirements leading to a master's degree in that discipline while completing their undergraduate studies. When senior-level students are within 15 hours of completing their undergraduate degree requirements, they may take up to nine hours of graduate level coursework designated by the program to satisfy both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. Interested UT Arlington undergraduate students should discuss this option with their advisors. Information is provided in the department section of this catalog, with details available in departmental offices.

At this time, there are Fast Track programs in the following undergraduate programs:

  • Aerospace Engineering leading to a Master's Degree in Aerospace Engineering
  • Biochemistry leading to a Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering leading to a Master of Engineering Degree in Civil Engineering
  • Computer Engineering leading to a Master's Degree in Computer Engineering
  • Computer Science leading to a Master's Degree in Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering leading to a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering leading to a Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering leading to a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering
  • Physics leading to a Master's Degree in Materials Science and Engineering
  • Physics leading to a Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering
  • Software Engineering leading to a Master's Degree in Software Engineering

Professional Engineering Licensure

The protection of the public welfare requires that those who practice engineering do so ethically and competently. Professional licensure requires an individual to meet examination and practice requirements defined by the laws of the state or states in which he or she intends to practice.

The first step toward licensure as a Professional Engineer (P.E.) is to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination. Graduating seniors are permitted to take the FE examination during their final year. The FE examination is offered by the Texas Board of Professional Engineers in both the fall and spring semesters. Since this examination is over topics common to all engineering degree programs, students are strongly urged to avail themselves of this opportunity at a time when their academic preparation is at a peak.

Pre-med and Pre-law Studies

Students graduating with degrees in engineering occasionally choose to go on to medical schools or law schools. Those students are advised to consult early with the pre-med or pre-law advisors at UT Arlington so that additional requirements can be taken in a timely way. For example, a minimum set of additional courses for an engineer planning to apply to medical school consists of 4 chemistry courses (2 in general chemistry, 2 in organic chemistry), and 4 biology courses (2 in general biology plus genetics and animal physiology).

Cooperative Education

The Cooperative Education Program (Co-op Program) at UT Arlington is a partnership between the University and various organizations of businesses, government, and industries that provides students with an opportunity to obtain experience in their chosen engineering discipline by alternating periods of formal study with periods of work or through a parallel program which allows students to work part time while taking courses at UT Arlington. This program enhances a student's education through work-related experiences and by association with participating professional engineers, and provides a competitive salary when working, as well.

Students who successfully complete the Co-op Program will receive cooperative education certificates and have this accomplishment entered on their transcripts. Co-op Program students are expected to register each work term in an engineering course (ENGR 2100 SUPERVISED ENGINEERING WORK EXPERIENCE, ENGR 3100 SUPERVISED ENGINEERING WORK EXPERIENCE, ENGR 4100 SUPERVISED ENGINEERING WORK EXPERIENCE, ENGR 3000 SUPERVISED ENGINEERING WORK EXPERIENCE) specified by the Director of the Co-op Program.  For enrollment reporting purposes only, students registered for one of these four courses will be considered full-time students.  Students classified as full-time students under the Co-op Program are not eligible for financial aid, but can use this designation for enrollment reporting for insurance purposes.  Students requiring financial aid must meet state and federal enrollment guidelines for enrollment in the required minimum semester credit hours each semester where aid is sought.  The College of Engineering provides assistance in placing students with companies that are related to their specific needs and program of study.

Information on prerequisites for application and requirements for acceptance are available in the Cooperative Education Office, 242 Nedderman Hall, and on the College of Engineering Web site .

Research and Graduate Education:

The seven departments in the College of Engineering offer 9 doctoral degrees and 14  master's degrees in engineering. with more than 2,100 master's students and 500 doctoral students. In addition to two Organized Research Centers of Excellence , there are 75  research centers, laboratories and groups  producing more than $37 million in research for government and private industry.

The college is a leader in distance education, providing a convenient way for working engineers to pursue a master's degree. Starting with TAGER, a dedicated microwave communications link in 1975, courses are now distributed on the Internet in streaming video, providing a very convenient access to students.

Undergraduate Education:

Baccalaureate degree programs are offered in aerospace engineering, architectural engineering, bioengineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, construction management, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and software engineering. The programs in aerospace engineering, architectural engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and software engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The program in computer science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET. Graduate degrees are offered in each of these disciplines and in another area of specialization:  materials science and engineering. All of the graduate programs offer master's and doctoral degrees except construction management, engineering management, and software engineering, which offer only master's degrees. A combined B.S. (Biology)/M.S. (Biomedical Engineering) degree is available for students interested in tissue engineering and biotechnology; see the Other Engineering Subject Areas section and the Biology section of the Undergraduate Catalog and the Biomedical Engineering section of the Graduate Catalog for details. There are several engineering “Fast Track” programs where outstanding seniors may begin taking graduate classes for credit while still in their undergraduate course of study. More details on “Fast Track” programs are provided in a later section. 

Preparation in High School for Admission to the College of Engineering

For students intending to pursue a major in engineering or computer science, the following preparation in high school is recommended.   This course work can be completed within the Texas High School Graduation Program options, approved by the State Board of Education for students entering grade 9 beginning with the School Year 2014-2015.  

Specifically, the following credits are recommended to prepare students for entry level college courses in engineering. 

In all areas, students are urged to take advantage of advanced placement opportunities and honors programs.   A student who enrolls without having completed the above credits will not be optimally prepared, and the duration of the student’s undergraduate program will likely be extended.  In particular, the engineering and computer science programs offered by the college are based upon a student being fully prepared to begin study with the following courses:  English 1301, MATH 1426, and CHEM 1441 or CHEM 1465.

Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission to the College of Engineering is based on the University's undergraduate admission requirements plus the following additional admission criteria for the College.

Students Entering Directly from High School

Students entering directly from high school or with less than 24 hours of transfer credit will be evaluated on the basis of the following admission criteria:

  • meeting UTA admissions requirements.
  • presenting a satisfactory SAT or ACT score 
  • for all programs other than Construction Management, completing the prerequisites necessary to enroll in MATH 1426 and CHEM 1441 or CHEM 1465.

Students for whom English is the primary language must present a minimum of two high school units in a single foreign language. Students otherwise qualified, but not presenting such credit, will be admitted with a foreign language deficiency that must be removed prior to graduation.   (Refer to College of Engineering Academic Regulations item 7, Foreign Language Deficiency Removal.) This requirement cannot be satisfied with computer science or programming language credit. 

Students entering directly from high school or with less than 24 hours of transferrable credit will initially be advised by the Division of Student Success (DSS). Transitioning to advisement by College of Engineering advisors will occur as the student accomplishes certain GPA and course completion milestones.

Students Entering with Transfer Credit

Transfer students include those from other units within UTA and those from other educational institutions.  Transfer students with less than 24 hours of transferable credit are admitted under the criteria for students entering directly from high school.

Transfer students with 24 hours or more of transferable credit will be evaluated on the basis of the following admission criteria:

  • meet UTA admissions requirements.
  • for transfer to all programs other than Construction Management, at minimum, complete the prerequisites necessary to enroll in MATH 1426 with no more than three attempts in any prerequisite course.
  • have earned a GPA of 3.0 or above in transferred courses applicable to the degree plan requirements.
  • have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above in all transferred courses.
  • comply with the C-grade rule. (See Academic Regulation 5 below.)  
  • comply with the three-attempt rule.   (See Academic Regulation 9 below.)

Students for whom English is the primary language must present a minimum of two high school units in a single foreign language. Students otherwise qualified, but not presenting such credit, will be admitted with a foreign language deficiency that must be satisfied prior to graduation.   (Refer to College of Engineering Academic Regulations item 7, Foreign Language Deficiency Removal.) This requirement cannot be satisfied with computer science or programming language credit. 

Advising

Students entering directly from high school and those with less than 24 hours of transferrable credit are advised initially in the Division of Student Success (DSS).   Students are transitioned to advising in the College of Engineering as they progress successfully in their degree programs.

Students with 24 hours or more of transferrable credit are advised in the College of Engineering.   New transfer students who are undecided about their engineering major or who are conditionally admitted are advised in Engineering Student Services; others are advised in their major department.  New students will not be able to register for classes without first being advised and obtaining an approval to register.

Continuing students in all engineering majors must receive advising by their major departments before registering.   One period in October and another in March are designated for preregistration advising.  Students must be cleared (showing that they have been advised) before proceeding with registration.

The advising goal for students who have not yet attained professional program status is to strengthen their academic background sufficiently so that they are able to subsequently complete courses in their engineering degree plans. To this end, a student's advisor may require him or her to enroll in fewer courses than specified by the University and may require him or her to retake courses for which credit has already been received.  See individual department program descriptions for requirements.

The College of Engineering's Engineering Student Services, located in 242 Nedderman Hall, houses the Co-op program and coordinated tutoring, assessment, and academic advising for engineering students.

Admission into the Professional Program

Students who have successfully completed the initial program of study may apply to their department for advancement to the professional program. Prior to admission to the professional program, students are required to demonstrate their intellectual talent, work habits, and professional ethics to warrant acceptance for study toward an engineering or computer science degree.

Hereafter, the term "pre-professional courses" is used for the set of courses, as specified by the degree plan, required for entrance into the professional program.   The term "professional courses" is used for the later courses in the engineering major, generally 3000- and 4000-level courses. See each program’s requirements for the degree in this catalog for specifics.    The professional program includes students who have been accepted by an engineering department into the professional program course sequence. An official degree plan is filed upon acceptance into this category. For advancement to a department's professional program, students must meet the following requirements:

1. Academic performance: Students must have completed all pre-professional courses with a grade of C or better, completed at least 12 hours of math, science and engineering courses required for the degree and taken at UTA, complied with the Three-Attempt Rule, and achieved a minimum three-calculation GPA as specified by the department.  Refer to the College of Engineering Academic Regulations and individual department program descriptions for specific requirements in the desired program.

2. Limitations on Enrollment: The University and the College of Engineering reserve the right to limit enrollment in any program, based on the availability of facilities and staff. To achieve such limitations, grade point averages and other measures of student potential beyond the minimum stated above may be applied.

Competence in Oral Communication and Computer Use

Students in engineering and computer science satisfy the oral communication requirement by successfully completing COMS 2302. Programs in the College of Engineering have different requirements for demonstrating computer literacy. Students should consult their particular degree program for details.

College of Engineering Academic Regulations

All students pursuing a degree in one of the College's academic programs must abide by the academic regulations of the University and the following additional rules established by the College of Engineering:

Regulations Regarding Work at Other Institutions

1. Enrollment in Other Institution(s): To ensure adequate coverage of needed material, once enrolled at UTA as an engineering major, a student must obtain written permission from the department before enrolling in courses intended to be transferred to the University for credit toward a UTA engineering degree.

2. Transfer Courses: Only equivalent courses in a program accredited by ABET or those lower division courses accepted by the College of Engineering or the student’s major department can be counted toward an engineering degree.

3. Validation of Transfer Credit: Transfer credit that constitutes a part of a continuing course sequence in the same area will be validated only upon satisfactory completion of the succeeding course in the sequence at UTA. Students whose performance in the subsequent courses at UTA is poor may be required to repeat courses taken elsewhere.

Regulations Regarding Work at UTA

4. Academic Honesty: The College of Engineering takes academic honesty and ethical behavior very seriously. Engineers are entrusted with the safety, health, and well-being of the public. Students found guilty of academic dishonesty will be punished to the full extent permitted by the rules and regulations of the University, up to and including dismissal from the College and/or the University.  

5. C-Grade Rule: A grade of D or lower in a pre-professional course indicates unsatisfactory preparation for further engineering education. Any such course in which a D or lower is earned must by repeated before enrolling in any course for which it is a prerequisite. This requirement is subject to the Three-Attempt Rule.     Students unable to raise their grade to at least a C in a pre-professional course within three enrollments (attempts) are required to change their major to a field outside of the College or to a College of Engineering program that does not include that course. 

6. English as a Foreign Language: Courses in English as a foreign language will not substitute for either ENGL 1301 or ENGL 1302.

7. Foreign Language Deficiency Removal: Students admitted to the College of Engineering with a deficiency in foreign language must remove that deficiency prior to graduation by taking two courses in a single modern or classical language totaling not less than six semester hours credit (eight semester hours are required in the current UTA introductory modern and classical languages sequence).   This requirement cannot be satisfied with computer science or programming language credit.

8. Academic Load: Students may not enroll in more than the University’s maximum permitted academic load without receiving the permission of the their department and the Dean of Engineering. The College of Engineering considers 12 semester hours in the fall and spring terms and nine semester hours in the 11-week summer term to be a minimum “full load” for undergraduates.

9. Three-Attempt Rule:  Students may attempt a course (at UTA and/or at any other institution) a maximum of three times and apply that course toward an undergraduate degree in the College of Engineering.   The "course", in this context, is any course which is a degree requirement or preparatory to a degree requirement.    Enrollment in a course for a period of time sufficient for assignment of a grade, including a grade of W, is considered an attempt.

Regulations Regarding Academic Standing

10. Three-Calculation GPA: The College of Engineering uses three GPA calculations to evaluate students for admission and continuation. The college will use the university’s grade exclusion/forgiveness policy applicable to the student in determining the three GPA calculations.   

Note: only grades earned at UTA are used in the COE GPA calculations. A student’s COE three-calculation GPA must meet or exceed the requirement in each of the following three categories:

  • All courses
  • All math, science, engineering and construction management courses applicable to the degree being sought, and
  • All courses in the major subject applicable to the degree being sought.

11. Satisfactory Academic Standing:  College of Engineering pre-professional program students are in satisfactory academic standing if they are not on University probation and at the same time maintain a 3-calculation GPA of 2.25 in the pre-professional program, are not in violation of the 3-attempt rule, and meet the GPA requirements of their major program.  College of Engineering professional program students are in satisfactory academic standing if they are not on University probation and at the same time maintain a major GPA and overall GPA of 2.0, are not in violation of the 3-attempt rule, and meet the GPA requirements of their major program.   (See the major department section of the catalog for this requirement.) 

12. College of Engineering Probation:  Academic standing is determined at the end of each semester after official grades post. College of Engineering students in the pre-professional portion of their program will be placed on College of Engineering probation if any one of the three GPA calculations falls below 2.25. Students on College of Engineering probation and in the pre-professional portion of the program are advised by an Engineering Student Services advisor. While on probation, students may be required to participate in student success activities, meet course grade requirements, and may be restricted in course load and/or course selection.  Students remain on College of Engineering probation until either all three GPA calculations meet the minimum required 2.25 or they are dismissed from the College. Once in the professional program, students in a College of Engineering major may be placed on College of Engineering probation if their major GPA or overall GPA falls below their program’s requirement for graduation, which is 2.0 for all programs.

Regulations Regarding Transient Student Enrollment in Engineering Courses

13. Enrollment of transient status students in COE courses will be approved on a case by case basis by the offering department.  Criteria includes status of student in their home institution, academic record, and prerequisite status for courses requested.  

Note:   For all COE regulations, GPA requirements and calculations are truncated (not rounded) after three decimal places. 

Designated Tuition Charge

In addition to fees applicable to the entire University, each engineering course carries a “designated tuition” charge (authorized by the Board of Regents per statute 54.0513) detailed under Description of Tuition and Fees.

College of Engineering Minors

A number of the undergraduate programs in the College of Engineering offer students in other disciplines the opportunity to earn a minor. In most cases a student has to complete 18 hours of course work as designated by the program. In many cases some of the courses in the minor may be used as an elective in the program the student is majoring in. The following departments in the College of Engineering offer minors: The Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department offers minors in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The Bioengineering Department offers a minor in Biomedical Engineering.  The Computer Science and Engineering Department offers a minor in Computer Science.

Requirements for an "Engineering Math" Minor

The Mathematics Department supports an Engineering Math minor available to students with a major in the College of Engineering. For specific requirements, please see the departmental advisor in the major program.

Undergraduate Certificates

Undergraduate certificates in areas of specialization are offered in the College of Engineering. These certificates include a Certificate in Autonotive Engineering, Certificate in Nanotechnology and a Certificate in Unmanned Vehicle Systems. Typically, students must complete 12 to 15 hours of course work as detailed in the requirements for specific programs to earn a certificate. These certificates can be earned by students who are pursuing their undergraduate degree at UTA, by students who are enrolled in other institutions, or by students who have already completed a degree at another institution and wish to specialize in a new field. More information about the certificates offered in the College of Engineering is provided in individual department sections of the catalog and on the web pages of the departments offering the certificates.

Honors Degree

College of Engineering students who wish to graduate with an Honors Degree in Engineering must be members of the Honors College in good standing. They must complete the major degree requirements and the requirements of the Honors College. Honors Degree requirements are compatible with all departmental and college requirements, but specific requirements vary with each engineering department’s program. It is particularly important that students pursuing an Honors Degree in Engineering consult carefully with an advisor in the College of Engineering and also in the Honors College before each registration to be sure all requirements are met.

Fast Track Program

The Fast Track Program enables outstanding UTA senior undergraduate students in several disciplines to satisfy degree requirements leading to a master’s degree in that discipline while completing their undergraduate studies. When senior-level students are within 15 hours of completing their undergraduate degree requirements, they may take up to nine hours of graduate level coursework designated by the program to satisfy both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. Interested undergraduate students should discuss this option with their advisors. Information is provided in the department section of this catalog, with details available in departmental offices.

At this time, there are Fast Track programs in the following undergraduate programs:

  • Aerospace Engineering leading to an M.S. Degree in Aerospace Engineering
  • Biochemistry leading to an M.S. Degree in Biomedical Engineering

  • Physics leading to an M.S. Degree in Biomedical Engineering
  • Software Engineering leading to an M.S. Degree in Software Engineering

Professional Licensure

The protection of the public welfare requires that those who practice engineering do so ethically and competently. Professional licensure requires an individual to meet examination and practice requirements defined by the laws of the state or states in which he or she intends to practice.

The first step toward licensure as a Professional Engineer (P.E.) is to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination. Graduating seniors are permitted to take the FE examination during their final year. The FE examination is offered by the Texas Board of Professional Engineers in both the fall and spring semesters. Since this examination is over topics common to all engineering degree programs, students are strongly urged to avail themselves of this opportunity at a time when their academic preparation is at a peak.

Pre-med and Pre-law Studies

Students graduating with degrees in engineering occasionally choose to go on to medical schools or law schools. Those students are advised to consult early with UTA pre-med or pre-law advisors so that additional requirements can be taken in a timely way. For example, a minimum set of additional courses for an engineer planning to apply to medical school consists of 4 chemistry courses (2 in general chemistry, 2 in organic chemistry), and 4 biology courses (2 in general biology plus 6 hours of advanced Biology).

Cooperative Education

The Cooperative Education Program is a partnership between the University and business, government, and industry that provides students the opportunity to obtain experience in their chosen engineering discipline by alternating periods of formal study with periods of work or through a parallel program which allows students to work part-time while taking courses. This program enhances a student’s education through work-related experiences and by association with participating professional engineers, and also provides a competitive salary when working.

Students who successfully complete the Co-op Program will receive cooperative education certificates and have this accomplishment entered on their transcripts. Co-op Program students are expected to register each work term in an engineering course (ENGR 2100, ENGR 3100, ENGR 4100, ENGR 3000) specified by the Director of the Co-op Program.  For enrollment reporting purposes only, students registered for one of these four courses will be considered full-time students.  ENGR 2100 will be designated as the part- time co-op course.  Students classified as full-time students under the Co-op Program are not eligible for financial aid, but can use this designation for enrollment reporting for insurance purposes.  Students requiring financial aid must meet state and federal enrollment guidelines for enrollment in the required minimum semester credit hours each semester where aid is sought.  The College of Engineering provides assistance in placing students with companies that are related to their specific needs and program of study.

Information on prerequisites for application and requirements for acceptance are available in the Cooperative Education Office, 242 Nedderman Hall, and on the College of Engineering web site.

Research and Graduate Education:

The College of Engineering offers 9 doctoral degrees and 12 Master’s degrees. The College of Engineering and its faculty, in conjunction with research centers, laboratories and groups across the University, have produced nearly $55 million in engineering-related research expenditures from government agencies and private industry.

Working professionals interested in pursuing a graduate degree may choose from more than 130 online courses available most semesters.
