Mission of the College
CECS will be a recognized leader in practice-oriented teaching and applied research.
CECS is committed to serve the lifelong educational needs of students, new graduates, working professionals, and employees.
CECS builds on combined traditions of student-focused education, entrepreneurship, and funded research and service emphasis. CECS provides education when and where needed, incorporating technology-enhanced methods, by full-time, dedicated faculty complemented by expert adjunct faculty from industry and government. CECS has offices on both the Huntington and South Charleston campuses.
In addition to the undergraduate programs described in this catalog, CECS offers graduate programs and professional education in engineering, environmental science, information systems, safety, and technology management. The Graduate Catalog contains further information.
CECS minimum admission requirements for students in addition to Marshall general requirements at the freshman level are:
- B.S. in Computer Science - Math ACT of 24 and minimum composite ACT of 21 (Math SAT of 560; composite SAT of 980)
- Pre-Computer Science - Math ACT of 19-23 and minimum composite ACT of 19 (Math SAT of 460-550; composite SAT of 900)
- B.S.E. Engineering, B.S.M.E, B.S.E.E., B.S.B.M.E. - Math ACT of 24 and minimum composite ACT of 21 (Math SAT of 560; composite SAT 980)
- Engineering Transfer program – Math ACT of 24 and minimum composite ACT of 21 (Math SAT of 560; composite SAT of 980)
- Pre-Engineering - Math ACT of 19-23 and minimum composite ACT of 19 (Math SAT of 460-550; composite SAT of 900)
- B.S. in Safety Technology - Math ACT of 17 and minimum composite ACT of 17 (Math SAT of 440; composite SAT of 820)
- CECS Undecided - Math ACT of 19, minimum composite ACT of 19 (Math SAT of 460; composite SAT of 900)
The college requires all freshmen and pre-computer science, pre-engineering, engineering transfer, and CECS Undecided students to see their advisors before they register each semester. These students are also required to take UNI 102 Strat for Academic Success.
It is important to consult Degree Works, which can be found in the myMU portal, about degree progress. Degree Works is used to verify progress toward degree and degree completion status. All courses completed and all courses needed for the degree are listed. If there are questions about Degree Works, please consult your faculty advisor.
Determining Your Catalog
You must meet the catalog requirements in effect at the time you declare your major. You then have ten years in which to complete your program. If you do not meet graduation requirements in this ten-year period, then you must meet the curriculum requirements of the catalog in effect at the date of graduation. If you decide to change your major within CECS or to transfer to another college at Marshall, you are governed by the catalog in effect at the time of change.
Academic Probation and Suspension
Please consult the university’s policy on academic probation or suspension.
Students are welcome to select undecided as a major, however, students in CITE begin taking classes in the major field of study their freshman year. Students who have selected undecided as a major and are Junior level status or above, 60 credit hours or more, must declare a major in order to register for the next semester of courses. The necessary paperwork is available in the CITE Dean’s office.
Students in CITE are responsible for meeting the Core Curriculum of Marshall University. Please consult the Core Curriculum section of the catalog, as well as the specific degree requirements, for details. Students in CITE are to consult with their advisors for guidance in how to meet these baccalaureate curricular initiatives.
