  • This Committee shall be charged with the examination of existing and proposed engineering curricula and the conduct and content of courses insofar as they affect engineering curricula. The results of such study and proposals from the departments or faculty groups of the college regarding changes in curricula, as well as any other proposed changes in college requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree, shall be submitted with recommendations to the Executive Committee for final action. (Am. 5/23/79, 2/9/00)
