So in my program I get a limited number of elective courses that I can take towards my degree as most of my courses are chosen for me. For the academic term following the one I'm currently in, I get to choose 1 course on top of the ones that have already been selected for me (Yaaay!).

The way it works is that the elective courses I can take must be chosen from 4 lists, ordered A to D. As it stands I need 1 more course from each of lists A, C, and D before I graduate. So if any of you are bored enough to take a look and possibly make suggestions as to what sounds interesting, that would be sexy.

You're doing engineering, correct?

A:

ECE 390 - Engineering Design, Economics, and Impact on Society
SOC 232 - Technology and Social Change

I think the first would be most interesting.

C:

Planning (PLAN) - 100
General Engineering (GENE) - 412
Management Sciences (MSCI) - 211, 311

This all seem relevant to enginerring.

D:

Mechanical Engineering (ME) - 401
General Engineering (GENE) - 315, 411, 415
Environmental Engineering (ENVE) - 391

Personally, environmental engineering sounds interesting.

Do you need to increase your grade average? How far along are you and how are your grades?

Take an Economics or Poli Sci course, you have a bunch to choose from.

Panda, why would you recommend engineering electives when he can choose anything he wants basically?

Because it is relevant to his overall degree. He'll be a better engineer if he takes engineering based electives.

I'm in 3rd year (of a 4 year program) and my grades are fairly mediocre. I'm not all that interested in choosing a course solely for the purpose of bringing up my average since I've yet to come close to failing a course.

@Nags, I've taken one macroeconomics course so far (which was pretty f*cking boring because our prof was basically useless) so Poli Sci sounds like a pretty good idea.

Any comparative public policy or government class is useful. I spent years studying something completely useless to me now. Government and business is also good.
