Preapproved Technical Electives

Preapproved Technical Elective (TE) Courses for the SE Graduate Programs

The rationale behind technical electives is to enable students to either learn more about specific topics or to gain specialized knowledge in subject areas outside the selected focus sequence.  A course cannot be taken both as part of a focus area and as a TE.  Other engineering courses having technical depth equivalent to the level of upper division SE courses will also be considered via the petition process.

Technical Electives can be any Science, Mathematics, or Engineering graduate course or approved SE upper division undergraduate courses (listed below). Can use up to eight units of approved upper division undergraduate for the M.S. Degree.
