Main Question or Discussion Point

What the general school policies when students take courses that aren't required for their major and take them as free electives or just for knowledge to their field of work.

For example, a civil engineering student takes Power engineering classes in electrical wiring design for buildings, houses etc.

I think there is generally no policy. I took a lot of additional coursework out of major. In some institutions, however, (especially in engineering programs) you may have to be a student in the major to register for a particular course (to limit class size and make sure there are still spots for the students majoring in the subject). Check into your student catalogue/handbook and talk to faculty for details about your institution.
