MAE 498/499

Once an undergraduate research opportunity or independent study is secured, students can register for MAE 498/499 in order to gain credit towards a Technical Elective. Students must register for 3 credits of MAE 498/499 in order for it to count towards one of these electives. A maximum of 6 total credits are permitted from all of the courses MAE 496, MAE 498, and MAE 499 combined.
