Additional Notes

  • GWS, GQ, GA, GH, GS, GN and GHA are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements. All students are required to take one IL and one US course before graduation. A course designated as US;IL may be used as a US or an IL, not both. 
  • Students who have not met the admission requirement of two units of a high school foreign language must complete a college level-one foreign language within their first 60 credits.

Program Notes:

Only students who have gone through the entrance to major (ETM) process and have been accepted into this major may register for junior and senior-level EE, CMPEN and SWENG courses.

Academic Advising Notes:

  • E E 210, CMPEN 270 and CMPSC 201 must be completed prior to the junior year to ensure that fall semester junior year prerequisites are met. 
  • Students planning on taking the FE Exam are advised to take M E 300.

School-Approved Electives for Electrical Engineering:

Technical electives allow students to choose areas of interest to explore. Technical electives come in two categories, primary and secondary. Primary technical electives are those courses offered to Electrical and Computer Engineering majors which are not required for the Electrical Engieering major. PHYS 414 is considered a primary technical elective. Secondary technical electives are offered outside your home department and give you broader latitude. Students must complete at least two primary technical electives and, at most, one secondary elective. Courses listed below as asynchronous are offered as needed when the appropriate faculty member is available.

Exceptions to the above policy will be granted to students who successfully complete a minor in one of the areas listed in the Academic Minors portion of the School of Engineering Advising 

Primary Technical Electives:

  • Any 300-400 level SWENG course
  • Any 300-400 level EE couse not already required for the major
  • Any 300-400 level CMPEN course not already required for the major
  • Any 400 level CMPSC course not already required for the major
  • Any 300-400 level technical gaming course

Secondary Technical Electives:

  • E E 395 (3:3:0) - Internship - Offered Fall/Spring
  • E E 495 (3:3:0) - Internship - Offered Fall/Spring 
  • CMPSC 461 (3:3:0) - Prgramming Language Concept - Offered Fall/Spring
  • CMPSC 471 (3:3:0) - Introduction to Compiler Construction - Offered Spring
  • MGMT 409 (3:3:0) - Project Management for Engineerings - Offered Fall/Spring
  • PSYCH 444 (3:3:0) - Engieering Psychology - Offered Fall
  • ECON 481 (3:3:0) - Business Forecasting Techniques - Offered Fall
  • ECON 485 (3:3:0) - Econometric Techniques - Offered Fall
  • PHYS 458 (4:3:3) - Intermediate Optics - Offered Every Other Year
  • MATH 455 (3:3:0) - Introduction to Numerical Analysis I - Offered Fall
  • MATH 456 (3:3:0) - Introduction to Numerical Analysis II - Offered Spring (Even Years)
