Engineering – Materials


Students interested in transfer to engineering majors at Auburn University are encouraged to contact a Transfer Specialist in Engineering Student Services (, 334-844-4310).

Students who graduate from a programs in the College of Engineering at Auburn University in must complete 36 hours in General Studies.

Students must complete a sequence in either History (Area IV) or Literature (Area II). It is recommended that this sequence be in World History or Western Civilization. While U.S. History will fulfill the sequence requirement, it will not fulfill Auburn SLO requirements potentially resulting in additional core courses being required.  ECO 232 Microeconomics (3SH) is the preferred additional Area IV course.

Area II must include at least one Literature course, one Fine Art course, and an additional course. It is recommended that the additional course be an Ethics course (PHL 206 Ethics and Society or IDS 102 Ethics) that is required for the engineering majors.

In addition to the Natural Sciences and Mathematics courses listed for Area III, Materials Engineering students take the following courses:

  • MTH 126 Calculus II (4SH)
  • MTH 227 Calculus III (4SH)
  • MTH 237 Linear Algebra (3SH)
  • MTH 238 Applied Differential Equations (3SH)
  • CHM 111 College Chemistry I (4SH)
  • CHM 112 College Chemistry II (4SCH)

A programming language course is required. MATLAB is strongly recommended.  CIS 231 FORTRAN Programming and CIS 251 C++ Programming are not required.
