SPRING 2014: EXPLORING SCIENCE & ENGINEERING MAJORS SEMINAR
In this seminar, we are excited to explore some of the more unexplored science and engineering majors that are available at the UW. This seminar is appropriate for 1st year, 2nd year, and transfer students who have not found their major yet. Some of the sample departments that we may be exploring include (subject to change):
- Astronomy - Atmospheric Sciences - Bioresource Science and Engineering - Earth and Space Sciences - Industrial Systems and Engineering - Integrated Sciences - Materials Science and Engineering - Oceanography
In this seminar, we will not be exploring other science and engineering programs that are more common (such as Biochemistry, Computer Science and Engineering, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, etc.) If all of this sounds like you, then you are in the right place! If it doesn't, you may want to find another class/seminar that is more appropriate. You can get help finding another class/seminar by dropping by UAA Advising in Mary Gates Hall or by finding a department adviser near you!
