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).  Students are required to complete 40 hours of upper division courses (3000-4000 level).  It is recommended that students consult with their adviser when making course selections.  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.
