NPRE 402 is a popular course across Engineering and related College majors. Please encourage interested students to consider taking it this summer. This course is offered every fall/spring and fills to capacity every semester. We do not keep a wait list and every fall/spring have to turn students away. This is an opportunity for students here in the summer to get in the course who otherwise might not.
