Non-Technical Elective courses existing in all 13 engineering curricula are intended to serve in meeting the following objectives of the education of engineering students and the engineering profession:
- To be aware of their humanistic, social, and environmental responsibilities,
- To be able to consider these factors in their professional decision-making processes,
- To be exposed to a broad spectrum of disciplines other than science and engineering, and
- To be able to establish a sound communication with professionals other than engineers.
