Technical Elective Petition

Please complete this form to request approval for a course that is not on the approved technical elective list. Keep in mind that at least 6 technical elective credits must be completed with ME EN courses. You are strongly encouraged to discuss your situation with your ME advisor (Ben Danh last names A-E, Rheannon Burnside last names F-L, Morgan Sriphong-Ngarm last names M-Q, or Benjamin Petrie last names R-Z ) or Dr. Debra Mascaro before submitting a petition.

Be aware of the approval timeline. Petitions for Fall courses need to be submitted by April 1 in the preceding semester. Petitions for Spring courses need to be submitted by November 1 in the preceding semester.

Any Special Topics courses (3960, 5960, etc) should not be petitioned using this form. Because of the nature of Special Topics courses, they should be routed through the Petition for Exception to Policy form.
