With approval, the following courses can be used as Renewable Energy Engineering Electives (students must meet course Prerequisite and co-requisites): upper-division EE-prefix courses (no more than two), courses belonging to a senior sequence, or 500-level REE courses. Enrollment in graduate-level courses at the undergraduate level requires special approval.

Senior Sequences:
Students are required to complete a minimum of one sequence (all three courses) from the list below:

  • Green Building: MECH 433, REE 439 and REE 455
  • Power Systems: REE 453, REE 454 and REE 469
  • Geothermal: REE 431, REE 451 and REE 471

With approval, students can complete a graduate-level REE sequence to meet the senior sequence requirement. Enrollment in graduate-level courses at the undergraduate level requires special approval.
