Technical Electives



Two courses required (6 credits)



At most one 300 level course is allowed.



The following courses are approved as technical electives:

o

MATH 311: Applied Mathematics for Science and Engineering

Math 311 can count
for

either

a Tech

Elective, or a Math Minor, but not both.

o

ENGR: 465 Forensic Engineering

o

ELEC: any 300 or 400 level course

(prereqs apply)
,
except

ELEC 491W,
492
.

o

ISyE: any 300 or 400 level course

(prereqs apply)
,
except

ISyE
330, 350, 391W,
492
.

o

MENG 410
Alternative Energy Systems

o

MENG 462
Topics in Fluid Mechanics
*

o

MENG 470 Finite Element Analysis
*


o

MENG 494: These are special topics that change
each semester. Past offerings
have included:



Computational Fluid Dynamics
*



Intro to Design Optimization
*



Prod
uct Design Using Six Sigma



Intro to Electronic Packaging



Mechanics of Polymers



Other courses are subject to approval by Dr. Huang.

NAVS students: see Dr. Huang.



Simulation Electives



One course required (3 credits)



The following courses are approved as s
imulation
electives*:

o

MENG 462 Topics in Fluid Mechanics

o

MENG 470 Finite Element Analysis

(FEA)

o

MENG 494 Computational Fluid Dynamics

(CFD)

o

MENG 494 Intro to Design Optimization



Other courses are subject to approval by Dr. Huang.



* All approved simula
tion electives are also approved as technical electives, but coursework does
not

double
-
count. For example, if a student takes MENG 410, MENG 470, and MENG 494
CFD, either of the latter two courses may count as the Simulation Elective. The other two woul
d
count as technical electives.
