Electives

The requirements for elective courses in both the Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering BS programs are described at the targets of the links below. This includes breadth electives, technical electives, and design electives. In some cases a separate document shows the anticipated availability of elective courses for a particular semester.

2021-2022 Academic Year

Elective courses in computer 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 division as having significant (at least
2/3rd) design content.

2. Allow students to emphasize a particular area in computer engineering by taking courses in that
area.

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 division as having significant (at least
2/3rd) design content.

2. Allow students to emphasize a particular area in electrical engineering, such as electronics,
energy, or systems and signal processing by taking courses in that area.

Breadth Electives (18 hours required)

  • Students must select courses from at least FOUR of FIVE groups
