Minor in Electrical Engineering
A Minor in Electrical Engineering is earned through completion of 20 credits. Twelve credits must be unique to the minor and may not count toward the fulfillment of majors or additional minors. No more than 8 credits can be used to satisfy the student’s major degree program requirements.
- Five courses (20 credits) selected from the list below.
- Students are expected to obtain the necessary background (prerequisites or equivalents) to complete their chosen minor program.
- A minimum 2.00 GPA is required in the courses used to satisfy the minor, with no grade less than a C–.
Students must have a declared major on record in order to apply for the Minor in Electrical Engineering, and applications are subject to the approval of the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. Students planning to pursue the minor should apply as early as possible to facilitate course planning and in no case later than May 1 of the junior year.
