Notes about choosing electives in focus areas:
  1. If a student wishes to count ENGR 699 (Independent Study) as an elective, course content and ES/ED units must be approved by both advisor and Mechanical Engineering Program Head.
  2. Students with Focus Areas of Robotics and Control and Machine Design must take ENGR 446/447 as Controls requirement.
  3. Students with Focus Area of Thermal-Fluids must take ENGR 410/411 as Controls requirement.
  4. Student must have an overall GPA greater than 3.0 to take graduate (800 level) courses to satisfy electives.
