ENGR 498A to be Offered both Fall and Spring semesters!

Starting in January 2024, ENGR 498A will be offered in the Spring semester and the ENGR 498A – ENGR 498B sequence will be offered Spring – Fall as well as the traditional Fall -Spring format. This format will allow students who plan to graduate in December to take additional engineering courses to be well prepared for the capstone experience. If you plan to graduate in the Fall semester, please contact your advisor for registration information and to answer any questions. (Note: the degree programs are reviewing the prerequisites and co-requisites based on this new flexibility.
