Substitutions for required courses can be made at the advisor’s discretion. 

Additional Requirements

  • An overall GPA of 3.0 must be maintained in courses used to meet the program’s technical requirements. At most two course grades of C or C+ are allowed to be used, and the rest of the course grades must be B- or better.
  • Students must satisfy the department’s graduate student computing requirement.
  • With advisor’s approval, one non-departmental course containing appropriate mathematical or statistical content can be counted to satisfy the five course requirement.
Courses not on this list can be used at the advisor’s discretion.
