    Note: International Students have one semester of grace period, after completion of their course work, not including the ENGR 895 or ENGR 898, to request a Reduced Course Load (RCL) with zero units. After this grace period, they will be required to register for 3 units in engineering. Students should speak to an International Student Advisor at OIP if they wish to request a RCL with zero units.
  2. Non-Engineering Electives: Courses selected primarily from sciences, mathematics, social science, or business, upon approval of the graduate coordinator.
    1. Elective courses must not duplicate subjects used in satisfying the student's undergraduate degree requirement.
    2. A program cannot contain more than 9 units of courses with course number below 700 and higher than 400.
  3. Minimum Prerequisites for conditionally accepted graduate student with a B.S. degree in a program other than Mechanical or Chemical  Engineering:
    MATH: MATH 226, 227, 228, 245
    PHYS: PHYS 230/232, 240/242
    ENGR: ENGR 205, 303, 304, 467
