Chemical Engineering Technical Electives
Chemical Engineering Technical Electives ≠ Biological Engineering Technical Electives
 Other courses may be allowed for technical elective credit, but you should get any course you are considering approved prior to enrolling. See your advisor about approving potential technical elective courses.
 Courses that are required in a program cannot also be counted as technical electives (no double counting allowed).
 At least one (1) Chemical engineering technical elective must be from the CHMY or BCH rubric (i.e., chemistry or biochemistry)
