Advising FAQ's

I haven't taken MAE 277/278 and need to replace it. What are my options?

If you have completed Junior level MAE courses, and did not complete MAE 277/278, you should replace this course with an SEAS Technical Elective. This is a 3-credit 300-400 level course within SEAS (BE, CE, CIE, CSE, EE, IE, or MAE).

How do I get credit for an internship, research experience or independent study?

To count as an elective, you must register for 3 credits of MAE 496/498/499. A maximum of 6 total credits are permitted to count towards degree requirements for informal courses (496/498/499). Additional information can be found at the links below.

I am a transfer student who took MAE 177 or EAS 230 elsewhere. How will this effect me?

If you took MAE 177 (Graphics) or EAS 230 (Computer Programming) at another school, you may not have the appropriate software that is required for upper level courses. If this is the case, please review the links below.
