Electrical Engineering B.S.E.E. Eight-Semester Degree Program

The following section contains the list of courses required for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a suggested eight-semester sequence. See the Eight-Semester Degree Policy for more details. Not all courses are offered every semester, so students who deviate from the suggested sequence must pay careful attention to course scheduling and course prerequisites.

Students should become very familiar with the Academic Regulations chapter for university requirements that apply to the electrical engineering program as well as the College of Engineering requirements (in particular the “D rule” and the “Transfer of Credit” for courses taken at another institution). In addition to these graduation requirements, candidates for an electrical engineering degree must have earned a grade-point average of no less than 2.00 on all ELEG courses.
