# Elective Courses for the

Electrical Engineering (EE) Option

## Background

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

- 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.
- 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.
