Graduate engineering classes are generally offered once per year, though they may be taught less frequently.
Mini numbers denote the order of these half-semester sessions: 1 & 2 are in the fall and 3 & 4 in the spring.
Special Topics classes (S.T.) are new or infrequent classes that may not be regularly scheduled.
