**Latest Descriptions and Previous Exams**

Note: the exam descriptions rarely
change from one semester to another, because of the nature of these exams. The
dates (in parentheses) indicate the last semester that a student took the exam
in that particular area, and, therefore, the last semester that the
corresponding exam description was updated.

Mathematics is a required subject. The remaining three exams need to be
across at least two different categories
highlighted in red (e.g., Thermodynamics, Dynamics, and Mechanics of
Materials).
