How and when do I select my electives?

A BSME student, you can choose three track electives in any of the six areas currently active in the department. Electives are chosen from the list of total Mechanical and Electrical Engineering courses at the Junior level (300 level) or the Senior level (400 level). The 400 level courses listed here and all other 400 level ME courses are available to all ME seniors who are in good standing. As an elective, a 500 level course can be taken by the senior Mechanical Engineering student, but only with the department chair’s permission. No 600 level courses are accepted toward the BSME degree.
