Technology Serving Humanity Schedule not like that? • You must have earned Transfer Credit (AP or other college course credit) • A course was added to your schedule in a Knowledge Area (to count toward Common Experience Curriculum Requirements) • ES 220 Statics - if both MA131 and PH131 completed • Other possibilities: SA&S 100, ES 41 …
Technology Serving Humanity SA&S 100 Co-Writing and ES 41 Spatial Thinking Skills • Both are 1 credit hr; neither course is required; they are meant to strengthen targeted academic success skills SA&S 100 Co-Writing: Pre-enrollment based on SAT Writing; linked to UNIV 190 ES 41 Spatial Thinking Skills: Pre-enrollment based on Spatial Visualization Survey; research-based
Technology Serving Humanity Clarkson Common Experience Curriculum http://www.clarkson.edu/common_experience/index.html and http://www.clarkson.edu/catalog/10-11/academic_requirements.html
Technology Serving Humanity Knowledge Areas (KAs): Cultures and Societies (CSO) Contemporary and Global Issues (CGI) Imaginative Arts (IA) Science, Technology, and Society (STS) Economics and Organizations (EC) Individual and Group Behavior (IG) Also Common Experience University Courses (UNIV) – have two or more KAs designated The knowledge area requirement is met by completing 4 KAs in a minimum of five courses beyond UNIV 190 (so at least one University Course).
Technology Serving Humanity The Communication Component Courses designated as communication intensive are assigned communication points on a scale of one or two (C1 or C2) to indicate the extent of communication experience in that course. Beyond the Clarkson Seminar UNIV 190 (a C2 course), students must obtain six more “communication points,” at least two of them within the major at the 300/400 level. Communication points can be obtained by taking designated courses, or, with approval, through co-curricular experiences.

Engineering Studies Seminar SeriesFall 2012Six informative weeks, Wednesday evenings, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in CAMP 177Learn about engineering majors at Clarkson, and how to make your choice of major. Anyone may attend. Attendance by Engineering Studies students is required at each session. In the first session you will learn about an overview of the engineering majors at Clarkson, meet your Engineering Studies advisor, First Year Advisor, and Engineering Career Center personnel, and learn about different tools available at Clarkson to help you focus on self-assessment and career exploration. In each subsequent session you will learn about the majors: What does a xxx engineer do? What is a profile of a xxx engineer? What kind of education does a xxx engineer need? Where does a xxx engineer work? How can I learn more about xxx engineering? SPEED teams, professional societies, internships, people to talk with…. These sessions will have a 20-minute presentation on each major. There will be time for questions and answers in each session. Come and plan your future!
