Technical elective courses must be 3000 level or above and must be taken with the approval of the Academic Advisor and the Department Head. Internship and Co-op courses are not acceptable as technical electives.

Technical Electives through Five-Year BS/MS Degree Plan Option

Students may, upon acceptance into the Five-Year BS/MS Degree Plan Option (see Roy G. Perry College of Engineering Special Programs), apply up to six semester credit hours of graduate courses toward technical electives requirements.

Eligibility To Take Upper Division College Courses

The Roy G. Perry College of Engineering applies an eligibility standard for students to take upper-division college courses. Students must have completed or be currently enrolled in all lower division (1000 and 2000 level) courses in English, mathematics, science, and engineering to be eligible to enroll in upper-division (3000 or 4000 levels) courses in the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering. Students in the Civil Engineering Program must complete the prescribed courses listed below with a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 in order to be eligible to enroll in upper-division (3000 or 4000 levels) courses in the College. Students transferring to the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering with 60 or more semester hours from another institution will be allowed a period of one semester to comply. The following list of courses must be completed prior to enrolling in upper-division courses:

CVEG 1101Intro Engineering & Comp Sci1
