​​Guidelines for selecting course flow:

Take a reasonable load (4-5) technical coures with one light course

The course number is related to level and thus avoid jumping

(e.g. taking 4xx when you are in 2-level / Sophomore)

Distribute Humanity courses over semesters as they are not too demanding

Taking summer sessions could reduce the load in the regular semesters

In double major case, try to make the two majors run in parallel

avoid level discrepancy (being senior in one and sophomore in another)


Be professional in both departments: A Scientest and an Engineer
