Syllabi of mechanical engineering electives are given in this section. These electives are 400 and

500 level courses. While the 400 level courses are of senior level courses, 500 level courses are

graduate level courses. Even though most undergraduates take 400 level courses, in the

combined BSMS degree program it is required the students take four graduate courses in the

senior years instead of 400 level ME electives. Therefore, we provide here the syllabi of those

graduate courses which students in this program will be able to take. Similar to undergraduate

courses, the course learning outcomes are also declared in all graduate courses and the end-of-

semester surveys are conducted on these outcomes.
