Minor in Electrical Engineering


  • A Minor in Electrical Engineering is earned through completion of 20 credits selected from among the ENG courses listed below.
  • No more than 8 credits may from the student’s major may be used to satisfy minor requirements.
  • Courses that are core requirements for the student’s major (ie., not an elective or part of a restricted elective) may not be used to fulfill requirements for the EE Minor.
  • Students are expected to obtain the necessary background (pre-requisites or equivalents) to complete their chosen minor program.
  • Students must have a declared major on record in order to apply for a minor in Electrical Engineering.
  • For the minor to be awarded, the grade point average (GPA) of the courses (20 credits) counted towards the minor, must be a 2.0 or greater.
  • The student’s application is subject to the approval of the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
  • Students planning to pursue a minor in Electrical Engineering should apply as early as possible to facilitate course planning, and in no case later than October 1 of the senior year.
  • Courses that can be used to satisfy the requirements of the EE Minor*:
    • ENC EC 311: Logic Design
    • ENG EC 401: Signals & Systems
    • ENG EC 402: Control Systems
