  • Concentrations are 15 hours of classes and typically satisfy the Design Elective, the ME Elective and 9 hours of free electives.
  • Concentrations are different than minors because they allow students to specialize in a particular area within ME.
  • Classes used for a concentration may not be used towards a minor or an additional concentration.
  • Students are only allowed to earn one concentration.
  • Concentrations currently do not show up on your transcript, but they may be on your transcript in the future.  Concentrations do not show up on your diploma.
