Engineering Honors RAP

Engineering Honors RAP

Honors College students admitted as engineering majors are eligible to join the Honors Engineering RAP.  

No application is required for this Honors RAP, and sign up is on a first-come basis. For detailed information and specific steps, see How to Join  a RAP. 

 


Living and Learning Community

You and a fellow Honors Engineering RAP student will live in Sycamore Hall, one of the first-year residence halls in the Commonwealth Honors College Residential Community(CHCRC).

 


Engineering Honors RAP Curriculum

To meet the requirements of the Engineering Honors RAP, you will enroll in a section of one of the math or sciences courses listed below. You will choose the class when you meet with your Honors Advisor during New Students Orientation (NSO). 

 


Engineering Honors RAP courses

MATH 131H: Calculus 1

Continuity, limits, and the derivative for algebraic, trigonometric, logarithmic, exponential, and inverse functions. Applications to physics, chemistry, and engineering. Students expected to have and use a Texas Instruments 86 graphics, programmable calculator. Prerequisites: high school algebra, plane geometry, trigonometry, and analytic geometry. There will be some emphasis on the underlying theory, that more applications will be included, and that some attention will be paid to history. Active student participation will be encouraged.

MATH 132H: Calculus 2

The definite integral, techniques of integration, and applications to physics, chemistry, and engineering. Sequences, series, and power series. Taylor and MacLaurin series. Students expected to have and use a Texas Instruments 86 graphics, programmable calculator. Prerequisite: MATH 131 or equivalent. There will be some emphasis on the underlying theory, that more applications will be included, and that some attention will be paid to history. Active student participation will be encouraged. Recommended for first-year, sophomores; majors, non-majors.

MATH 233H: Multivariate Calculus

Techniques of calculus in two and three dimensions. Vectors, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, line integrals. Prerequisite: MATH 132, or 136. Students expected to have and use a Texas Instruments 86 graphics, programmable calculator. There will be some emphasis on the underlying theory, that more applications will be included, and that some attention will be paid to history. Active student participation will be encouraged.

CHEM 121H: Honors General Chemistry

Basic principles of chemistry. Microscopic nature of atoms and molecules; macroscopic properties of chemical systems. Topics include stoichiometry, atomic and nuclear structure, chemical bonding, molecular structure, gases, and intermolecular forces. Includes laboratory. More extensive lecture treatment of advanced topics and laboratory work than CHEM 111.
