Petitions for Major Approved Electives and Design Courses

In addition, in consultation with their advisors, students may petition for other upper level (greater than or equal to 4000) CEE courses to be considered to meet the Design or Major-Approved Electives. Students are also able to petition for other courses outside the major to count towards a Major-Approved Elective if it's a technical course, which has either a technical prerequisite beyond the common curriculum, or an advanced standing (4000 level or above and is limited to Juniors or above.)
