Degree Requirements and Courses

See the Courses tab for recommended and required courses

Requirements for the BS-AMEP degree are listed in the UW Madison Guide. AMEP is a separate degree in L&S, the BS-AMEP degree requirements are somewhat different from those for a typical Letters & Science BS or BA degree. AMEP requires a total of a least 125 credits in the College of Letters and Sciences and/or the College of Engineering.

Degrees vs Majors:  A student can have multiple majors but only one degree. Students can earn an AMEP degree with additional majors (e.g. computer science, music, etc.) but one cannot add an AMEP major to an engineering degree or to a BS degree. The AMEP major does not exist!  AMEP is its own degree

Physics OR Engineering: Credits used to fulfill the Physics requirements cannot be used to fulfill the Engineering requirements, and vice versa. Some courses are cross-listed between Physics and Engineering and can count for either Physics or Engineering requirements but not both.

Double counting Lab and Comp: Credits used to fulfill the laboratory and computational requirements may be counted towards the Math, Physics and Engineering requirements, where appropriate. For example Math/CS 513 or Math/CS 514 can count as Math (and CS) courses as well as satisfy the AMEP computational requirement. 

Please see Course Lists, Typical Course sequences, Descriptions for further information about specific courses recommended or required for AMEP.
