Engineering Elective Courses

Engineering Elective  can be chosen from the 2xx,3xx,4xx,5xx non-ELE courses in the school of Engineering. Content of the engineering elective course should be significantly different from any ELE course, otherwise the course will not be accepted. For example END 224 and END 213 courses are very similar to the ELE 273 course, therefore cannot be taken. It is the responsibility of the student to consult their advisors and choose a legitimate course.

Some rules:

  1. 1xx coded courses cannot be chosen as Engineering Elective
  2. The following (and maybe some other) courses cannot be taken as Engineering Elective, as they have similar counterparts in the ELE curriculum:
    • END 213
    • BMM 307
    • MAK 305
    • ELE 297
    • MAK 310
    • BMM 310
    • MBN 310


Non-technical (University) Elective

Non-technical elective can be chosen from the 3-Credit courses given by the faculty of Law, Economic and Administrative Sciences and Architecture and Design. Departmental prerequisites may apply. Foreign Language courses cannot be chosen as non-technical elective.


Departmental Elective

All ELE 4xx, ELE 5xx coded courses with 3 credits are departmental electives.Only the senior design project course ELE 495 is mandatory.

WARNING: Students are responsible for getting a verbal permission from their advisor before taking any elective course.
