2 Introduction This document is intended to be a guide to the curriculum for VIPER students. Note, however, that for both your major in the College of Arts and Sciences (often referred to with the acronym for the whole School of Arts and Sciences, SAS) and the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) major, you will have a major/faculty advisor. You should always consult with both your major advisors each semester about the requirements for your majors. You should also discuss with your major advisors when (the specific semesters) you plan to take certain courses, to aid overall planning. First Semester Recommended VIPER Schedule Since VIPER is a dual degree program, courses taken by VIPER students in the first semester will largely depend on the majors chosen within SAS and SEAS. Below is a rough guideline. Students should choose tentative majors in both SAS and SEAS in order to choose the best schedule. Refer to each major s course requirements as listed on the department s website and/or in the Course Planning Guide. Brief descriptions of each and links to details are given later in this document. The course recommendations below do not take into account any Advance Placement credits you may have, so make sure to read the placement sections below. MATH 104 (or appropriate level Mathematics) See below for Mathematics placements CHEM 101 (or appropriate level Chemistry) See below for Chemistry placements CHEM 053 PHYS 150 (or appropriate level Physics) See below for Physics placements Appropriate 100- level Engineering course for the SEAS major Social Science or Humanities Elective/Writing Course/College Sector 2

4 A checklist for the summer before freshmen year June View the Freshman Videos and familiarize yourself with the College and SEAS websites. Set up your PennKey account. The Office of Information Systems and Computing sends incoming freshmen a PennKey set- up code by if you provided an address to admissions, and by mail if you did not. If you did not receive this mailing, or if you need further information, see PennKey Set- up Code Service. Once you have your PennKey, create your School of Arts and Sciences address AND your School of Engineering and Applied Science address. Complete the Advising Questionnaire. Use the on- line resources for selecting courses especially courses recommended for freshmen. Pay particular attention to freshman seminars and writing seminars, and the Course Search and Mock Schedule tool in Penn In Touch. View Penn's Advanced Placement Policies. June 22- July 17 Advance Registration August- September Review the Registration Tutorial. If you have questions about how to register, contact your peer- advisors (see list of students on p. 3 of this document). This is when you will talk with Dr. Kristen Hughes on the phone or via Skype to discuss your fall classes. Select potential courses. Identify five primary and several alternate courses you would like to request during Advance Registration. Enter your requests on Penn In Touch between June 22 and July 17. Your chances of obtaining the courses you request are the same regardless of when during this period you register. Tune in to the live advising webcast with the Dean of the College, Dean of Freshmen and faculty and College advisors. The webcast will air on Tuesday, June 30. Check your schedule on Penn In Touch in late July/early August. Check the New Student Orientation schedule for College and SEAS activities and events. Dr. Hughes also will be in touch with you about not- to- miss events for VIPER students. Take Placement exams for Chemistry, Math, and/or Language. (This can be discussed during your phone/skype advising session.) Move- in and New Student Orientation (NSO). In addition to the links/sites noted above, here are some good reference websites to help you get started thinking about your freshmen year: Engineering Student Handbook College Policies and Procedures VIPER curriculum page 4

5 A Brief look at the VIPER Curriculum Note: All SEAS majors approved for inclusion under the VIPER curriculum should lead to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree. Link to VIPER curriculum information The basics: SAS major and school requirements + SEAS major and school requirements + The following VIPER requirements: Introduction to Energy Research (1 CU total; two 0.5 CU courses) A seminar course (consisting of two 0.5 CU courses: VIPR120 + VIPR121) that introduces students to current energy research topics, the challenges and techniques involved with conducting research, and strategies for reading and writing technical papers and research proposals. Students will also be paired with research mentors in this course. VIPER Summer Research Experiences / Independent Study Research (up to 2 CUs - see attached policy) 3 CUs of Energy Specific Coursework (3 CUs): In some cases, these courses can double- count toward major requirements. Please see list of approved courses. A senior capstone energy design project, as part of the student s engineering major (1 CU) 5

For more details, see the Biology Department website, the Chemistry Department website, and the NSO Placement Exam Schedule 6

7 Which Math, Chemistry and Physics courses should you start with? One of the most difficult things to determine before your freshmen year is which Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry courses to take. Hopefully the information below will help. Math Placement Detailed placement information is listed on the Mathematics website: Passing the external Advanced Placement BC Exam administered by the College Entrance Examination Board with a score of 5 gives credit for Math 104. Lower scores on the BC Exam receive no course credit. No credit is given for the AB Exam. In the summer before they enter their first year at Penn, students are expected to take the Penn Math Diagnostic. This test will guide you in your choice of the appropriate entry course. To take the diagnostic, go to the website: (see the section on Math Diagnostic Placement Exam ) and sign in using your PennKey and password. You will see a course called Penn Diagnostic Placement Exam. Students should set aside an uninterrupted time block to complete the exam before the end of Advance Registration. The problems on the diagnostic test cover a broad range of topics and skills. You should expect to encounter problems that you cannot solve. The idea is to solve what you can within the timeframe. Remember that the purpose of the test is to guide you in finding a starting place, not to evaluate your ability to achieve your math potential. 7

8 Chemistry Placement A score of 5 on the AP Chemistry exam earns a student Chemistry 091 credit. One can also take a placement exam given by the Chemistry Department. This is strongly recommended. See more of the Chemistry Department s detailed information regarding placement here: chemistry- placement- exam And here: advanced- placement- information Chem091 is used to indicate the equivalent of 1 c.u. (1 semester) of introductory chemistry based solely on standardized exam performance (high school AP exam, etc.). Chem091 does not correspond exactly to either Chem101 or 102. HOWEVER, credit for Chem091 can be converted into either Chem101 or 102 by taking the Chemistry Department Placement exam (and doing well). For exam registration inquiries and updated information on exam dates, locations, times, etc. please contact Ms. Candice Adams in the undergraduate office at or For VIPER students planning to take Introductory Chemistry, the Honors Chemistry series Chem115 and Chem116 (equivalent to Chem101 and 102) may be most appropriate. Speak with Ms. Adams or your VIPER academic advisor Dr. Hughes, to check on your eligibility to take the honors series. 8

9 Physics Placement 5 on the Physics- B à Physics 091, 092, 050, on the Physics- C (Mechanics)à Physics 093, on the Physics- C (Electricity and Magnetism)à Physics 094, 051 Please see the Department of Physics and Astronomy website for a further explanation of Penn Physics AP and foreign equivalents and additional details on lab requirements. You may also contact Ms. Millicent Minnick in the undergraduate office at or For students who took AP Physics in high school and are planning to major in Physics, the Honors Physics series Physics170 and Physics171 (equivalent to Physics150/151) may be most appropriate. Check with the Physics Dept. regarding student eligibility for the 170/171 series. Physics 150 and 151 are each 1.5 credit units, with a lab and lecture component. Physics 150/151 (or ideally PHYS 170/171) are recommended for anyone considering medical school in the future. 9

10 Appropriate 100- level engineering course for the SEAS major Depending on your SEAS major, a different 100- level Engineering course is recommended in the first semester. Always consult with your SEAS faculty advisor, but the general recommendations are: Bioengineering (BE): BE100 Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE): CBE150 Electrical Engineering (EE): ESE111; CIS110 or ENGR105. Materials Science and Engineering (MSE): ENGR101; contact MSE Undergraduate Chair Dr. David Pope at for more details. Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM): o Please see the section of this packet about the MEAM major and the discussion on MEAM 110/147 and PHYS150 or 170 (pp ) o Students with AP credit for PHYS093 and PHYS050, or students who may be planning to take PHYS150 or 170 (to meet the intro Physics requirement for their College major/degree) may take ENGR105 or MEAM101 in lieu of MEAM110/147 o See this page: students/undergraduates/index.php o Please contact Ms. Desirae Cesar at for more details 10

11 Social Science or Humanities Elective/Writing Course/College Sector/Foundational Approach Course As a dual degree student, you will want to choose your general requirement courses carefully so that in many cases your courses fulfill both the College and SEAS general requirements. Some examples: A student could take History 086, fulfilling both the College s History and Tradition Sector requirement and the College s Cross Cultural Analysis Foundational requirement, as well as a Social Science and Humanities breadth requirement in Engineering. A student could take Economics 001 (ECON001), fulfilling the College s Society Sector requirement, as well as a Social Science and Humanities breadth requirement in Engineering. The student could then later take Economics 002 (ECON002) for another Social Science and Humanities breadth requirement in Engineering, while also meeting Engineering s Social Science and Humanities depth requirement. Details regarding College requirements Courses fulfilling College requirements Details regarding SEAS Social Science & Humanities Breadth and Depth Requirements Students are strongly encouraged to complete their writing requirement in their freshmen year. To meet College requirements, students may not use A.P. credit to satisfy the writing requirement, and must take the course for a letter grade. The guidelines for fulfilling this requirement in the College are here. See this page, to check whether your preferred writing seminar (assuming it satisfies the College writing requirement) will also fulfill the writing requirement in SEAS. VIPER students will take the VIPER freshman seminar in the spring of their freshman year and the fall of their sophomore year. For VIPER students, this course can be used toward one College sector requirement (Sector 7). Students may double- count no more than one course toward both the major and the Sector Requirement. The same course cannot be used to fulfill more than one Sector (i.e. the seven Sectors must be fulfilled using seven different courses). The same course cannot be used to satisfy more than one Foundational Approach. However, courses taken to satisfy Foundational Approaches may also be used to satisfy the Sector and/or Major Requirement. For more details on rules and restrictions regarding the College curriculum, see these pages and associated links: policy 11

12 policy For more details on rules and restrictions regarding the Engineering curriculum, see the SEAS Student Handbook: 12

13 The Basics of the Majors While VIPER students come to Penn as Undecided in the College and Curriculum Deferred in SEAS, it is important to consider your likely majors in each school so that you plan accordingly. The most likely majors for VIPER students include Physics, Chemistry, Biology, or Earth Science/Environmental Science from the College and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE), Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), Electrical Engineering (EE), or Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM) from SEAS. Other science and engineering majors, including Mathematics, are also possible with the permission of VIPER s faculty co- directors. Note: All SEAS majors approved for the VIPER curriculum should lead to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree. The following pages provide an overview of the majors, but student should ALWAYS contact their chosen major departments (in both the College and SEAS) and speak with their major advisors regarding current and specific curriculum requirements and rules. 13

14 Physics The details, restrictions and policies of the Physics Major are listed online here. Always consult with your Physics faculty/major advisor. The Basics: The major in Physics is divided into a core requirement plus all of the courses in one of five concentrations: Advanced Physical Theory and Experimental Techniques, Chemical Principles, Computer Techniques, Astrophysics, or Business and Technology. The number of required credit units (c.u.) varies, depending on the concentration chosen. There is also an honors program for ambitious students. A Master's Program permits qualified students to submatriculate and obtain a master's degree. Core Courses: The following courses must be taken by all Physics majors, no matter what their concentration: Math 104, 114, 240, and 241 Physics 150 or 170, Physics 151 or 171 Physics 230, 250, 351, 361, 362, and Concentration Courses (see requirements here) See the Physics and Astronomy Department's website for more information. 14
