deciding your course composition: Various degree requirements Prerequisite tree/ Course dependence Your capability What/who to consult: Course Catalog (http://catalog.rpi.edu) CAPP report (from SIS) Academic advisor Registration for FALL 2011 Which courses to take? Factors that you should consider in deciding your course composition: Various degree requirements Prerequisite tree/ Course dependence Your capability

What/who to consult: Course Catalog (http://catalog.rpi.edu) CAPP report (from SIS) Academic advisor Various degree requirements Where to find them: CAPP report, curriculum templates. Some requirements that I would like to discuss: Professional Development Communication Intensive Courses Humanities and Social Sciences Required Electives CAPP Report Communication Intensive

Requirement Students must meet this requirement before they can graduate from Rensselaer. Students will need to take a course in their major and in HASS. Most capstone design courses are CI courses for the major and HASS are diverse. Entire List of courses are on SIS front page

Guidelines for Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences (HASS) 24 Credits are required for HASS -6 classes Need to take a minimum of 2 courses from both the Humanities and Social Sciences ( 8 credits each) Can only have 3-1000 level classes Need to complete a depth sequence (examples: 1000 writ & 2000 writ ;2000 Phil & 4000 Phil; Need to have a 4000 level course.

Understanding Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences Breakdown Humanities Social Science Art (ARTS) Literature( LITR) Music (ARTS) Communication (COMM) Writing (WRIT) Philosophy (PHIL) Science Technology Studies (STSH) History (STSH) Anthropology (STSS) Psychology (PSYC)

Economics (ECON) Sociology (STSS) * Interdisciplinary Studies-IHSS can be used as a Humanities or Social Sciences course Other rules No more than six credits can be taken as Pass/No Credit IHSS Courses will be in a free elective section on the students CAPP Report Students can go to the Registrars Office & request the course to be changed to either Humanities or Social Sciences Students can only transfer in or receive AP credit for 8 credits within your HASS core requirements.

Further inquiry: Ms. Elizabeth Large ([email protected]) Required Electives (an oxymoron?) These are courses that you HAVE TO take (thus, required). However, you can choose from a list of options (hence, elective) You can find them at the bottom of your curriculum template, or in your CAPP report. Concentration electives are not listed in the curriculum templates. Consult the following website for the list of concentration electives: www.ecse.rpi.edu/ senior_advising_cse_ee_techcon.html

Curriculum Templates and Prerequisite Trees Six popular major combinations: ELEC, CSYS, ELEC/CSYS, CSYS/CSCI, ELEC/PHYS, ELEC/BMED. Note: Electrical Energy Systems is ECSE-2110 Dual major means you have to satisfy the graduation requirements of both majors. Info on dual major/minor/double degree can be found in the slides from 3rd advising meeting. (See downloadables at my advising website). Consult the template when registering for a new semester. Plan ahead. The templates are suggested course line-up. There is some flexibility, especially if you are single majored. Pre- and Corequisite Courses Prerequisite: the course(s) that must be completed

before taking the current course. Example: MATH2400 is a prerequisite for ECSE-2010, i.e. you need to have passed Diff. Eqs. before taking Electric Circuits. Corequisite: the course(s) that must be completed before OR being taken while taking the current course. Example: MATH-1020 is a corequisite for PHYS-1220, i.e. you can take Calculus II and Physics II at the same time, but you cannot take Physics II before Calculus II. Where to find this information: Course Catalog (catalog.rpi.edu) Warning: The pre-/corequisite chains can be long. Plan ahead.

However, its always better to consult the tree. If your tree is not available, build one using the template and the course catalog. Frequently Asked Questions How do I transfer credit from other institutions? Always consult before you take any course outside. The course needs to be approved by

RPI based on the course description and syllabus. Example: HASS courses: consult Ms. Elizabeth Large ( [email protected]) ECSE courses: consult Prof. Gary Saulnier ( [email protected]) Are there tutorial sessions for 2xxx level courses, outside of TA and Frequently Asked Questions I need to get into a section/class that is full. What can I do? Option 1: Request instructors approval to register. There is a form for this. Option 2 (if available): Sign up for a waiting list. In either case, you need to visit the School
