Tech Electives

Technical electives are the final phase of undergraduate education in Mechanical Engineering. Considerable latitude is allowed in the selection of technical electives. The objectives of the technical electives are to synthesize the knowledge and skills acquired in required ME EN courses and to broaden the student’s knowledge in other related technical areas.

Provided below is the tentative teaching schedule of technical electives. This schedule is subject to change with the onus being on the student to check back each semester for possible updates.  What is listed on the official class schedule is what is final.
