General ChE Technical Electives*

The ChE curriculum requires students to take 15 credit-hours of technical electives. Six credit-hours must be ChE electives (Group A). The remaining nine credit hours can be made up of ChE electives (Group A), approved technical electives from other departments (Group B), or a combination of ChE electives and approved technical electives from other departments (Group A or Group B).

*The department is no longer offering technical concentrations. If you have already chosen to pursue a concentration, you will be allowed to complete it. When you are advised each semester, the academic advisor you see will have a list of applicable courses that will apply to your concentration of choice. The following list applies to all other students.
