Elective Courses for the
Electrical Engineering (EE) Option


Elective courses in electrical engineering are intended to achieve the following:

  1. Round out the design requirements of the BS degree.  This is accomplished by taking a minimum number of hours of 4xxx-level EE courses designated by the department as having significant design content.
  2. Allow students to pursue one of the three stated emphasis areas in the catalog, i.e., 1) Electronics, 2) Energy, 3) Systems and Signal Processing 4) Computers. This is accomplished by electing EE courses or courses outside the department that are supportive of the emphasis area.
