Technical Elective Courses (TE)
Courses offered by the department or some related courses offered by other engineering or science departments. However, it must be noted that at most 2 of 5 technical elective courses in the curriculum may be taken from other engineering or science departments, which requires approval of your advisor. (each min. 3 credits). Catalog descriptions can be obtained from here.
Non-Technical Elective Courses (NTE)
Courses related to social sciences, humanities and communication. A list of non-technical elective courses that satisfy the non-technical elective requirements of engineering department students is available on the web page of Faculty of Engineering -(Non-technical Elective Courses in Engineering Curricula). The courses in this list are in the areas of linguistic, foreign language studies, history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, fine arts, political sciences and economics. It must be noted that environmental engineering students are restricted further for the courses from the fine art and music department such that they are allowed to take only one course from each sub-departments (i.e. MUS, THEA and INST) of the fine art and music department to satisfy their non-technical elective requirements. (each min. 3 credits).
