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 that is not already required in the curriculum (or equivalent courses from other departments). Courses taken as technical electives may not be used to satisfy a minor. General engineering (GE), humanities/social sciences (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 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.
8 Choose graduate technical electives from the approved list. Consult with Graduate Program Director if you wish to take a graduate course not on the list. Permission granted on a case-by-case basis.
9 Graduate electives are any course numbered 500/5000 or higher in any discipline for which student has necessary prerequisites. Can include graduate business courses or graduate math courses
10 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 provide additional evidence of his/her ability to succeed in the MS program, including letters of recommendation, and admission is then at the discretion of the Program Director.
