This Phys/OPSE course must satisfy the Engineering Technology GUR requirement. Courses that meet this requirement are all OPSE courses, PHYS 443 Modern Optics, PHYS 444 Fluid and Plasma Dynamics, PHYS 481 Applied Solid State Physics: Microelectronics I, PHYS 482 Applied Solid State Physics: Microelectronics II and PHYS 485 Computer Modeling of Applied Physics Problems

General University Requirements and Electives

All students are required to satisfy the General University Requirements (GUR). All GUR courses and additional mathematics, technical, and free electives are to be selected in consultation with a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Refer to the General University Requirements section of this catalog for further information on electives.

Co-op Courses

In Mathematical Sciences, the co-op courses, MATH 310 Co-op Work Experience I and MATH 410 Co-op Work Experience II, bear degree credit and count as technical or free electives, subject to approval by a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.


All electives should be selected after consultation with a Mathematical Sciences faculty advisor. Any mathematics course numbered 331 or above may be used as a mathematics, technical, or free elective. Any NJIT course at or above the 100 level may be used as a technical or free elective; except a technical elective is a course that has a significant mathematical and/or scientific content. All elective courses are to be chosen in consultation with a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
