Mathematics/science elective

Two technical electives

Two free electives

Two technical electives, two free electives: One of the free electives or technical electives must be either a Mathematics or Science course

Technical Electives- Technical electives are a diverse set of courses in design, thermal systems, dynamic systems, and other relevant areas of engineering, mathematics and science. These courses give students the opportunity to study advanced topics in their areas of interest. Technical electives emphasize the application of fundamental concepts and provide a sound basis for graduate study and professional practice in Mechanical Engineering.

The Common Course of Study is required.
