Does not include the University's General Education language and culture requirement. Additional hours may be required.


Non-major Engineering Elective includes options of any three-credit course from BME, CEE, CS, ENMA (except ENMA 480), MAE, & MSIM.


Electrical Engineering students need four technical elective courses selected from one of two options: (1) four 400-level ECE technical elective courses; (2) three 400-level ECE technical elective courses and one 300-level ECE technical elective course or one approved 300- or 400-level CS/MATH/Engineering course.

The General Education requirements in information literacy and research, impact of technology, and philosophy and ethics are met through the major.

Electrical engineering majors must earn a grade of C or better in all 200-level ECE courses prior to taking the next course in the sequence.

Any ECE course registration issues are to be resolved with the ECE Academic Coordinator and Program Manager.

The four-year plan is a suggested curriculum to complete this degree program in four years.  It is just one of several plans that will work and is presented only as broad guidance to students. Each student is strongly encouraged to develop a customized plan in consultation with their academic advisor.  Additional information can also be found in Degree Works.
