Electrical Engineering Electives (18 credit hours)

List of EE electives expected to be offered.

Except for the conditions  listed below, any EE or CSE  course at or above the junior  level that is not required in the student's program applies to this requirement.

  • At least one EE elective must be an EE Lab Elective.
  • A maximum of 6 credit hours of undergraduate research may be applied toward degree requirements.
  • A maximum of 3 credit hours of CSE Jr. and CSE Sr. Service Projects may be applied toward this requirement.

Technical Electives (9 credit hours)

List of courses pre-approved as EE Technical Electives. 

Credit for other courses in his category may be granted by approval of the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Students who complete the ROTC program may use 3 hours of military science for 3 hours of technical elective.
