All engineering majors require students to complete 1st year electives. Students are able to choose these from a list of approved electives in a broad range of areas, however first year electives might also fit into one of two categories:
- Recommended first year electives: These are electives that complement your major particularly well.
- Core courses: Some majors have core courses listed that are also on the first-year electives list. Students have the option to count those core course(s) as also meeting their first-year elective requirements. Students who decide to use their core courses for this can then take additional disciplinary, breadth or practice electives.
