  III. Any additional coursework deemed necessary by your faculty advisor

Please refer to the OSU Catalog and the MIME Course Listings for additional courses that are offered by MIME and other relevant programs. Note that some courses are “slash” courses (e.g. ME 412/512) and are listed with their 400-level course number first. For graduate student programs of study, only courses taken at the 500-level or above may be used, and no more than 49 percent of the 500-level courses may be taken as “slash” courses.

The OSU Catalog is the official source for all major, minor, and option requirements. The information provided here is for planning purposes only, as new coursework is often approved in advance of full approval in the OSU Catalog.
