SELECTION OF ELECTIVES- ME PROGRAM

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING (ME ) PROGRAM

Selection of technical electives (ME Program)

Students enrolled in the Mechanical engineering program are allowed to take two courses (each Three credit hours) from: College of Science, College of Engineering Sciences, or College of Computer Science & Engineering, with the following restrictions:
 
  • The course must be 3XX or 4XX levels.
  • ​Courses CE 432, CHE 300 and CHE 303 are not acceptable because of overlap with ME required courses.
  • The following courses overlap with ME elective courses and will not be credited if both are taken: CHE 32/ME437, CHE 463/ME 480, CHE 472/ME 472, CHE 473/ME 496, CHE 480/ME423
  • Special topics courses offered by any department in the above colleges will NOT be accepted as a technical elective unless approved by the ME Department.
