*Students with credit for a course have the option of using that credit as a prerequisite and registering for a higherlevel course or forfeiting their credit and repeating the course for a grade at CWRU. Students who choose either option may make changes to their enrollment during the first two weeks of the semester (drop/add period) should they discover that the course in which they originally enrolled is not at the appropriate level. Students may find it more manageable to change to lowerlevel course after beginning at the higher level.
Schedule development instructions:
 Students who place into MATH 120 via the math diagnostic exam must successfully complete this course before enrolling in PHYS 121.
 It is important for students to follow the recommendations for the timing of MATH courses, as well as CHEM 111, ENGR 131, and PHYS 121 so as to make timely progress in the major and avoid future complications. Students who place into MATH 120 for the fall semester should discuss with the Academic Representative summer options for completing MATH 122 before the start of the second year.
 Students may choose to prioritize/arrange core courses based on the following orientations (if known):
 Electrical: Students should complete PHYS 121 and 122 as early as possible. Students with no prior PHYS credit should take PHYS 121 in the fall (if eligible) and PHYS 122 and ENGR 131 in the spring.
 Computer engineering/computer science: Take EECS 132 in the fall. (Students who have credit for ENGR 131 should still take EECS 132.) Students with credit for EECS 132 are encouraged to take ENGR 131. Though it is not strictly required, it will aid in later classes. These students should take PHYS 121 after credit for MATH 121 is earned.
 Mechanical/biomechanical engineering: Students may choose ENGR 200 in the spring rather than ENGR 145. Students pursuing the biomechanics track will need to take ECIV 310 in the fall of the second year. It is highly recommended that ENGR 200 and ECIV 310 be taken in subsequent semesters. These students should take PHYS 121 after credit for MATH 121 is earned, and take ENGR 145 in the second year.
 Chemistry/biomaterials engineering: Take CHEM 111 in the fall semester. Students with AP/IB chemistry credit should take ENGR 145 in the fall. Take PHYS 121 after credit for MATH 121 has been earned.
 PreHealth: Take CHEM 111 and ENGR 145 as soon as possible.
 Students who are uncertain of any particular orientation in BME should follow the standard recommendations on the course grid below.
 Students interested in the biomedical computing and analysis track should take EECS 132.
 EECS 132 – Introduction to Programming in Java may be substituted for the ENGR 131 requirement.
 EBME 105 is optional, but strongly recommended for students with limited knowledge of biomedical engineering (BME) or who are unsure which BME track is most suitable. EBME 105 provides information about BME at CWRU as incorporated in 4 tracks related to devices, computational analysis, biomechanics, and biomaterials. Opportunities for participation in research and design projects are described.

 EECS 132 – Introduction to Programming in Java may substitute for the ENGR 131 requirement.
 In the polymer science and engineering major, it is important that students earn credit for ENGR 145 in their first year (fall or spring semester) so that EMAC 270 can be taken in fall semester of the second year.
 Students interested in learning about the field of polymer science might consider including EMAC 125 – Freshmen Research on Polymers in their fall semester schedule. Contact Professor David Schiraldi (david.schiraldi@case.edu) for information on enrolling.

*Students with credit for a course have the option of using that credit as a prerequisite and registering for a higherlevel course or forfeiting their credit and repeating the course for a grade at CWRU. Students who choose either option may make changes to their enrollment during the first two weeks of the semester (drop/add period) should they discover that the course in which they originally enrolled is not at the appropriate level. Students may find it more manageable to change to lowerlevel course after beginning at the higher level.
Schedule development instructions:
 Students who place into MATH 120 via the math diagnostic must successfully complete this course before enrolling in PHYS 121.
 Students with AP or IB credit for CHEM 111 may proceed to ENGR 145 or take PHYS 121 and delay ENGR 145 until the spring semester.
 EECS 132 – Introduction to Programming in Java may substitute for the ENGR 131 requirement.
 Students with credit for ENGR 131 or EECS 132 may take PHYS 121; students with credit for both PHYS 121 and ENGR 131/EECS 132 may take PHYS 122.
