Cal Poly Pomona

Technical Electives

Students in the general and environmental options must complete a certain number of approved technical elective units, as indicated by CE XXX under "required option courses" on your curriculum sheet and flow chart.   The list of approved technical elective courses is shown in the following table.  Check the department's planned course offerings web page to determine when each course is planned to be offered.

Students may request permission to take other 300 or 400-level engineering or related courses as technical electives by submitting an academic petition.

Students with senior standing (>135 units completed) and GPA > 2.8 in upper division math, science, and engineering courses may request permission to take graduate engineering courses (CE 5XX) for undergraduate technical elective credit.  However, students must submit a written request to do so (the form is available from the Dean's Office in 9-225).  This form must be submitted no later than the end of the third week of classes.
