Graduation Requirements

Please note: The following list of graduation requirements refers to the CSU-Pueblo Catalog in effect in the Fall 2007. Students usually graduate by meeting the requirements listed in the catalog in effect on the date they begin their studies at CSU-Pueblo. They may elect to graduate under a subsequent catalog but must then meet all requirements listed in that document.

A student must complete 124 credit hours in order to graduate with a BSCET degree. This program can be completed in four years (eight semesters) by a student going to school on a full-time basis. Students working full-time jobs are encouraged to carry a lighter course load and to complete the curriculum in a correspondingly longer time frame. The requirements can be broken into several broad categories as follows.

Institutional and General Education

In addition to attending technical courses offered by the math & science and the CET department, students must broaden their education by taking a group of courses labeled General Education courses. These courses cover topics ranging from written communication to humanities, social sciences, and science & technology. Because of the large number of science courses included in CET curricula, no additional science courses are needed to satisfy the GenEd requirement.

Co-curricular Requirements

The faculty supports and encourages the involvement of engineering technology majors in at least one student professional organization specific to their discipline.

Outcomes Assessment Activities

Colorado State University-Pueblo and the CET program rigorously assess student learning outcomes. Annual updates are made to specific learning outcomes defined in the University Catalog. Further information can be found on the university website under Assessment and Student Learning.
