# CSE Certificate Program Courses

The following table identifies courses that qualify for the CSE certificate program. Note that this list is not inclusive and may be expanded to include other advanced courses of three credits or more as approved by the certificate program's faculty advisor. Abbreviations used in the table include the following: SCH - refers to a School, College, or ICES; CLA - College of Liberal Arts, CNS - College of Natural Sciences; CSE - Cockrell School of Engineering; JSG - Jackson School of Geosciences, MSB - McCombs School of Business. The course abbreviations in column one are consistent with the UT Undergraduate Course Catalog and descriptions of each course may be found therein.

*** Some courses on the approved list below may be restricted by the department offering the course. Please note that the Certificate Program CANNOT ask the department to waive prerequisites or force the department to lift restrictions on their courses. Every effort has been made to include multiple options under each category to allow students from various majors to find courses that fit within their degree program.
