Elective Courses

Any energy-related course offered at Notre Dame may be used as an elective. This list varies from semester to semester and may not include all options. Use the ENST attribute in Class Search or NOVO to find approved electives. Additional courses, including those taken abroad, may be acceptable with pre-approval. A course that teaches a skill that can be applied to energy may be used with pre-approval and proof that some assignments were energy related. Such courses are not included on this list.

New this year are more courses listed specifically under ND Energy, using the prefix ENER.  In most cases, this gives us reserved seats specifically for Energy Studies minors. Once those are filled up, you can sometimes get into the course through a cross-listed section instead. 

Being an Energy Studies minor does not qualify you for courses unless you have the pre-requisites. If you think you would be able to handle the course material or if you want to try to get into a class that is full, you should contact the professor directly. ND Energy cannot get you into classes.
Any questions, contact Anne Berges Pillai, apillai@nd.edu.
