NOTE:						

The five electives are subject to the following constrants: 						

-	"Two courses must be in chemistry to chemistry-oriented subjects.  A course in microbiology, "					

	"geochemistry, or other chemistry-related areas may be acceptable as on of these electives."					

-	One elective must be in Chemical Engineering or in an approved advanced chemical engineering					

	subject.  Suitable Courses include: 32.2908-Senior Project (Fall and Spring); 32.4400 Chromatographic					

	Separation Processes (Spring); 32.4430 Introduction to Biochemical Engineering (Fall); 32.4600					

	Introduction to Semiconductor Processing (when offered); 32.4961 Topics: Transport Phenomena (Fall)					

-	Two electives are completely free.					



There are essential sequences which must be done in order.  Example:  Differential Equations precedes Fluid 						

Mechanics I and Fluid Mechanics I precedes Heat Transfer.  Engineering Thermodynamics must be taken before 						

CHEG Thermodynamics.



Selection of the constrained electives must be approved by the curriculum clearance officer who maintains a list of

appropriate courses.
