The 100-level courses are introductory or fundamental and are normally open to first-year students.

The 200-level courses are intermediate and are normally open to first- and second-year students following the first-level sequence, and may have prerequisites; 200 also designates sophomore engineering courses not normally open to first-year students, or courses open to students who have completed one year of college work or its equivalent in the subject.

The 300 series denotes advanced courses that have prerequisites or internships normally open to juniors and seniors. Independent Study and Special Topics are open only by permission of the department head.

The 400-level courses are designed for seniors or have 300-level course prerequisites. Thesis courses that are open only to honors candidates also bear 400 numbers.
