E. Elective study (36 points)

Students choose from the technical electives below for which they meet pre-requisites and/or choose units required to complete an engineering-approved minor from another faculty. Students wishing to choose other electives (that is, neither aerospace engineering electives nor those required to complete an approved minor) should consult their course advisor prior to doing so. Students completing a single degree should complete a minimum of 24 credit points of level 3 and 4 technical electives from the list below. For students completing a double degree, some units required for the partner degree are credited as electives towards this degree.

Aerospace engineering technical electives

* Students must obtain an honours weighted average (HWA) of 70 per cent or above at the conclusion of level 3 and be in their final year to enrol in these units.
