A valid technical elective is any technical Engineering, Math, or Physics course at the 3000 level or higher that does not repeat required undergraduate material. The following courses are listed as unacceptable as technical electives:
- All ENGR courses
- All 6000-level and above courses
- All 3000-level Physics courses except Astronomy
- All 3000-level Math courses except 3001, 3002, 3004, 3005, 3006
Undergraduate Research credits are encouraged, particularly for those students anticipating graduate school. Up to 3 semester credits of Undergraduate Research may be applied to the Technical Electives requirement with no special approval necessary. 3 additional credits are possible by petitioning the Aerospace Curriculum Committee for approval in advance.
A full list of tech electives can be found in the degree audit in Catalyst.
