AME Registration Guidelines for Fall Semester 2019

Schedule of on-line registration Ticket Times:

              Class of                           Ticket Times

             2020 – Senior                 Monday, April 15, 2019

             2021 – Junior                 Wednesday, April 17, 2019

             2022 – Sophomore         Wednesday, April 24, 2019

 

Meeting with Academic Advisers:

Students can locate their adviser through insideND.  The student is required meet with him/her to discuss their proposed schedule of courses for the Fall 2019 semester and to obtain a “PIN Sheet” for registration. This meeting should be scheduled BEFORE the student’s ticket time. Students are strongly encouraged to prepare a course plan for their full 4-year program prior to the meeting with their adviser. Please review the curriculum requirements for your class year that are posted on the AME web site as you make this plan.

 

General Recommendations:

(a) Equivalence approval for course substitutions or for courses no longer offered should be obtained in writing PRIOR to enrollment in the course from the AME Director of Undergraduate Studies.

(b) Please check all prerequisites. Students who are ahead can take courses that are offered as long as they satisfy the pre- and co-requisites.

(c) AME courses offered both semesters are

  • AME 20216/Lab I, AME 20217/Lab II;
  • AME 21267/Design Tools I, AME 21268/Design Tools II;
  • AME 20221/Mechanics I, AME 20222/Mechanics II;
  • CBE 30361/ Science and Eng. Materials;
  •  AME 40463/ME Senior Design Project.  

Fall courses that are “required” in either the AE or the ME programs are listed in the following Table.

(d) 50000-level are used to designate upper-level undergraduate elective courses. Undergraduates are encouraged to consider taking any of these courses for which they have satisfied the pre-requisites.

(e) 60000-level courses, which are considered entry-level graduate courses, may be suitable undergraduate electives for many students. Undergraduates considering these as electives should review the additional detailed course information provided on the web prior to registering for these courses. Some 60000-level courses require instructor permission for undergraduates to enroll. If you intend to enroll in a 60000-level course, after gaining approval of the instructor, please confirm, via email, that permission has been granted to Mrs. Donna Fecher in the AME office. (dfecher@nd.edu)

(f) Requirements for graduation correspond to those in place the year of entrance to First Year of Studies.

(g) Students can count toward degree requirements a maximum total of six credits of non-classroom courses such as AME 48491 Undergraduate Research, and AME 47560 Independent UG Design Project.

 

Undergraduate Research: 

Faculty approval is required for AME 48491 Undergraduate Research.  Students should contact a faculty member for research opportunities. Students cannot receive credit and hold employment for the same research activities at the same time. To register for AME 48491 Undergraduate Research, a student should:

  1. Go to the AME department office and obtain an Undergraduate Research Approval Form.
  2. Complete the form, and have the faculty member who will mentor the research sign the form verifying he/she will work with this student.
  3. Return the form to Mrs. Donna Fecher in the AME department office.
  4. Mrs. Fecher will enter an override (within 2 business days) and email confirmation to the student.
  5. Student is then able to register for AME 48491.
