Engineering First-Year Requirements
Students who are recent high school graduates or who have earned fewer than 15 semester hours of collegiate credit are classified as first-year students and must meet common engineering program requirements. Such credit requirements may be met in a number of ways, including:
- Advanced college-level course work at the University of Dayton or other collegiate institutions,
- Advanced placement examinations,
- Departmental examinations during the first term, or
- Taking the prescribed courses as part of the first year.

Required both semesters.
Chemical engineering students must take CHM 124 and CHM 124L in the second semester and postpone one of the three Humanities Base courses until the third semester.
Engineering students take this requirement first or second semester of the first year.
Chemical, civil, and mechanical engineering students must take CHM 123L; computer and electrical engineering students take PHY 210L.
Chemical, civil and mechanical engineering students are not required to take any programming course in the first year. Computer and electrical engineering students take CPS 150 in the first year. Mechanical engineering students take MEE 104L in the second semester of the first year.
