Undergraduate Approved Elective Courses

Students are required to complete 6 credit hours in each of three types of electives:


  • Technical Electives
  • Engineering Electives
  • Advanced Chemistry Electives

For Technical electives, at least one of the two required courses must be at the 3000-or-above level. The same is true for Engineering electives.

A Technical elective is any course offered by the School of Science and Engineering.

An Engineering elective is any course offered by one of the engineering departments or by Computer Science. (Note that a course such as CENG 4890, for example, could count as either a Technical or Engineering elective, but no single course can be used to satisfy two requirements.)

An Advanced Chemistry Elective must come from the following list (note that some prerequisites may be needed):

Chemical Engineering (CENG)


  • CENG 4450 Applied Biochemistry I
  • CENG 4460 Applied Biochemistry II

Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (CHEM)


  • CHEM 3110 Physical Chemistry I
  • CHEM 3210 Inorganic Chemistry
  • CHEM 3310 Instrumental Analysis
  • CHEM 3830 Introduction to Biochemistry
  • CHEM 3840 Intermediate Biochemistry
  • CHEM 4020 Neurochemistry
  • CHEM 4230 Organometallic Chemistry – Transition Elements

Earth & Environmental Science (EENS)


  • EENS 4360 Environmental Geochemistry

Students choosing to count CENG 5000 may not also petition to count independent study credits toward the elective requirements.
