Notes:

The international requirement calls for an international experience and 2 of the 6 H/SS electives to be globally focused or 4 of the 6 H/SS electives to be globally focused.  

There is flexibility in determining the exact semester a student takes ENGR 1869, ENGR 135, H/SS electives 4-6, and the Technical Electives.
