Degree Plans and Requirements

At the Cockrell School, you will learn from experts in the field and have access to infinite opportunities such as internships, externships, service learning projects, study abroad, scholarships and undergraduate research. These experiences will enhance the outstanding education you receive through your engineering curriculum. Engineering students take a lot of courses, and fitting all of them into four years can be challenging. We invite you to use the following degree plans to help with course planning.

Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics

In aerospace engineering, students work closely with faculty to create, develop and apply aerospace technology to solve important global and societal problems — from mapping deforestation and migration to tracking weather patterns and more.

Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering combines knowledge in engineering, molecular and cellular biology, and medicine to improve human health and progress. Students and faculty work to build interdisciplinary knowledge and translatable solutions for human health.

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is one of the most broadly based engineering disciplines, offering opportunities in advanced materials, bioengineering, energy, environmental engineering, microelectronics, modeling and simulation, polymers and more.

Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering

The increasing demand for energy, water and the need to minimize and control climate change, requires civil, architectural and environmental engineers to be at the forefront, using state-of-the-art technologies to ensure adequate food, water and mobility.

Electrical and Computer Engineering

In electrical and computer engineering, students learn transformative solutions for building and maintaining secure data infrastructure, design intelligent utility networks, smart grids and mobile wireless networks, and advance nanotechnology and biochips.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is the application of the principles of physics in the analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is one of the broadest engineering disciplines and has one of the longest histories.

Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering

Energy is a key component to people's lives; and a secure energy future requires a balance between environmental impact and affordable supply. Petroleum and geosystems engineers are able to address and solve important issues that will lead to energy security.
