An undergraduate student, who has completed all degree requirements except for attaining a 2.00 average, must take at least 50 percent of all subsequent course work in technical material (subject to approval by the Director of the David Crawford School of Engineering).


Courses approved for Math/Science/Engineering Electives: CE 348, CH 205, CH 225, CH 327, EE 303, EE 325, EE 357, MA 241, MA 306,MA 309 MA 310, MA 370 MA 407, PS 334, PS 341, PS 426, PS 428, and any ME 400 level course not specifically listed as a degree requirement.
Two different ME 490 courses covering different topics can be used to satisfy the ME elective and the Math/Science/Engineering elective. 
Other 200 level (or higher) 3+ credit courses offered by College of Science and Mathematics or the David Crawford School of Engineering may be approved subject to completion of the course prerequisites and a positive recommendation from the student’s academic advisor and the Mechanical Engineering department chair.


A fifth General Education Elective is required, choose from History, Literature, Arts & Humanities or Social Science General Education courses. 


Two different ME 490 courses covering different topics can be used to satisfy the ME elective and the Math/Science/Engineering elective.
