Purposes

The mission of the Herff College of Engineering is to provide quality teaching, research, and service programs to the citizens of the state, region and nation. The College provides undergraduate programs in biomedical, civil, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering, and in engineering technology. Graduate programs are offered in all of the disciplines listed above. Each curriculum is designed to prepare students for practice of the profession in industry, government, or academic institutions. Considerable effort is directed toward breadth as well as depth to provide programs of highest quality.

Organization

The Herff College of Engineering is organized into the Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Engineering Technology. Each department offers a choice of specialized four-year programs leading to baccalaureate degrees. Graduate programs are offered in all of the engineering disciplines listed above.

Freshman students entering the Herff College of Engineering will be advised by the College Academic Advisor, who will assist students with class schedules and facilitate changes of major and other academic needs. After students accumulate an appropriate number of hours, their advising will be transferred to a faculty member in the department of their major.

ADMISSIONS

A student will be classified as engineering, pre-engineering, engineering technology, pre-engineering technology, or STEM Focus as follows:

  1. Engineering: A student may declare an engineering major with a minimum placement into MATH 1910 Calculus I (MATH ACT sub-score greater than or equal to 27 or ALEKS math placement score greater than or equal to 76), or a grade of C in MATH 1720, MATH 1730, or ENGR 1010. After meeting any one of these requirements, a student may declare a Biomedical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, or Mechanical engineering major.
  2. Pre-Engineering: A student may declare Pre-Engineering with minimum placement into MATH 1710 Combo College Algebra (MATH ACT sub-score greater than or equal to 18 or ALEKS math placement score greater than or equal to 30), or a C in MATH 1100.
  3. Engineering Technology: A student may declare a major in Engineering Technology with a minimum placement into MATH 1710 College Algebra (MATH ACT sub-score greater than or equal to 20 or ALEKS math placement score greater than or equal to 46), or a C in ENGR 1009 or COMBO MATH 1710.
  4. Pre-Engineering Technology: A student may declare Pre-Engineering Technology with minimum placement into MATH 1710 Combo College Algebra (MATH ACT sub-score greater than or equal to 18 or ALEKS math placement score greater than or equal to 30), or a C in MATH 1100.
  5. STEM Focus: A student may declare STEM focus if both the MATH ACT sub-score is less than 18 and ALEKS math placement score is less than 30. The student will be advised by the Academic Counseling Center.

Computer Requirements

Every year, software tools become more entwined with practice of the engineering profession. In addition to preparing our students for professional practice by teaching them how to use these tools, our undergraduate curricula employ software tools to efficiently and effectively deliver subject matter expertise, to enhance student-teacher interaction, to assess student learning, and to increase student achievement. Therefore, the faculty of the Herff College of Engineering requires that each student enrolled in the college’s programs possess computing resources that meet or exceed certain minimum specifications. Current requirements and specifications are posted here.

Degree Requirements

Students must satisfy all university, college and departmental degree requirement for the degree desired. University requirements may be found in the “Graduation from the University” section of this Catalog. The College requires that a minimum of 30 hours of the hours required by the University for residency be taken as upper division hours in courses in the Herff College of Engineering. Specific departmental requirements are subject to change and students should consult their advisor regularly to learn of changes that occur.

Accelerated BS/MS

Qualified students are allowed to earn a Bachelor’s degree in an approved undergraduate discipline and a Master’s degree in five years. Students with high school advanced placement credits may require less time. See the departmental catalog sections for details.

Individual program requirements described in the University of Memphis Undergraduate Catalog are subject to change. Please consult the college level advisor for changes that may occur before publication of the next issue of this Catalog.
