STEM Technical Electives

The technical electives are designed to allow students to explore their desired subfield of engineering. A strategic selection of courses can help with the transfer process to a specific engineering school.  Note that students have the option to cross-register for courses at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.  Students should discuss their options with their advisor.
