1 There are 12 credits of humanities and social science (HU/SS) electives, six must be in humanities (HU) and six must be in social science (SS).
2 These credits may be taken from the math (MA) or science (BI, CH, PH, SC) area. Consult the Academic Catalog for prerequisites and limitations. Math electives include the following: MA 330 , MA 343 , MA 380 , MA 381 , MA 382 , MA 383 , MA 387 .
3 All students must choose one of the three specialty sequences of classes beginning in the winter quarter of the junior year (BSS- Building Structural Systems; BMS- Building Mechanical Systems; or BEPS- Building Electrical Power Systems).
4 Prerequisite courses vary by specialty. See Academic Catalog for prerequisite courses.
5 Refer to the Academic Catalog for a detailed list of requirements for entrance into senior project sequence.
6 A “technical elective” is defined as any engineering, business, management or technical communication course, 200/2000 level or higher. Courses taken as technical electives may not be used to satisfy a minor. Engineering technology (ET, MT), general education (GE), humanities (HU/SS), mathematics (MA), nursing (NU) or nursing-specific courses/electives, orientation (OR), pure science (BI, CH, PH, SC), ROTC (AF, AR, NS) or undergraduate research (UR) courses are not eligible as technical electives.
7 These three credits may be taken from any field.
8 Masters students must decide between a Building Structural Systems (BSS) specialty or the Mechanical Electrical-Plumbing (MEP) specialty.
9 Students with a background in mechanical or plumbing systems need to take AE 5404 as an electrical design leveling course, students with a background in electrical sustems need to take AE 5402 as a mechanical design leveling course.
10 Students have the option to either complete a three-course capstone option (AE 8900 , AE 8910 , AE 8920 ) or to take a project course (AE 8000 ) and an additional two technical elective courses.
11 Graduate technical electives are any course from AE or CV that are 500/5000 level or higher.
12 Graduate free electives are any course that is 500/5000 level or higher.
Admission to the MS portion of the BS/MS AE program in the student’s senior year is contingent upon maintaining a minimum overall MSOE GPA for 3.0 or above. Otherwise, the student will have to apply in writing, and admission is then at the discretion of the Program Director.
