Undergraduate Approved Elective Courses

Students are required to complete 6 credit hours in each of three types of electives:

  • Technical Electives
  • Engineering Electives
  • Advanced Chemistry Electives

For Technical and Engineering electives, at least one of the two required courses must be at the 3000-level or above.

A Technical elective is any course offered by the School of Science and Engineering.

An Engineering elective is any non-required CENG course, a course offered by one of the engineering departments (BMEN, ENGP), or by Computer Science (COSC and CMPS). (Note that a course such as CENG 4890, for example, could count as either a Technical or Engineering elective, but no single course can be used to satisfy two requirements.) At least one of the two required courses must be at the 3000-level or above.

An Advanced Chemistry Elective must come from the following list (note that some prerequisites or co-requisites may be needed):
