What courses count as chemical engineering elective?

The rules in the Department of Chemical Engineering for technical electives are posted on the web on the undergraduate advising page.  The rules are updated from time to time and students are advised to choose the list that corresponds to their catalog year (usually the year they entered Michigan Tech).

Note that many of the courses listed above are not offered every semester and most have prerequisites.  A “*” indicates courses that do not require additional prerequisites other than classes CM majors must already take.  It is best to plan out your technical electives ahead of time.
