Technical Electives

Mechanical Engineering technical electives are courses intended to deepen your understanding of specific topics related specifically to mechanical engineering.  In choosing your ME technical electives, consider the following:

  1. What are the pre-requisites for the courses in which I am interested?
  2. When are the electives offered? (Spring, Fall, Alternating Falls, Alternating Springs?)
  3. Does the elective have a lab?  If so, can I can schedule the lab without conflicts?
  4. Are there similar courses in other departments?  If so, what are the pre-requisites?

To learn more about which specific courses have been approved by the Mechanical Engineering Department to satisfy technical elective credit, see our Approved Technical Elective Courses for the Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Major on our degree planning page.

To learn more about the process of getting approval for Independent Study Courses (IE 490s), see our Independent Study Proposal Process for ME students.
