Technical Electives in the Mechanical Engineering Curriculum

The Mechanical Engineering curriculum (program 284) includes 12 hours of technical electives as a requirement for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. The technical elective program enables students to specialize their background in a technical area of special interest (e.g., automotive, aerospace, biotechnology, etc.)

The purpose of this document is to suggest specific courses that students may wish to consider for their technical elective program. Generally, courses can be selected from the broad classifications listed below.

  1. Non-required ME 300, 400 and 500 level courses.
  2. Physics courses of level higher than PHYS 241.
  3. Chemistry courses requiring CHM 116 or 124 as prerequisites.
  4. Advanced biology courses and veterinary science courses.
  5. Mathematics courses more advanced than MA 303.
  6. Technical Writing, ENGL 421 (may not be used for general education elective credit – ENGL 420 and ENGL 421 cannot both be used to satisfy degree requirements).
  7. 300, 400, or 500 level courses in any engineering school other than mechanical engineering that are not duplicates of other courses taken.

However, not all courses within these classifications are acceptable for technical elective credit. Before registering for a course, be sure it appears in the list of pre-approved technical electives provided below. If a course does not appear on the pre-approved list, a written request (or email) may be submitted to the Undergraduate Office to have a course considered for technical elective credit.

To assist students in their selection of technical electives, the list of pre-approved courses is divided into 47 topic areas. Neither the list of topic areas, nor the list of pre-approved courses within each area, is intended to be all-inclusive. Students should refer to the appropriate undergraduate catalog for course description and prerequisite information or click on any of the course links below for online course information.

Students are encouraged to discuss their career plans and technical elective program with faculty members whose expertise are in their area of special interest. Students may wish to consider 3-6 credits of ME 497 projects to study contemporary areas of research not covered by the standard curriculum. Undergraduate research is an excellent option for students considering graduate study in engineering.
