Minor in Electrical Engineering
Undergraduates of all majors may opt to complement their degree with an in-depth minor in electrical engineering.
- Undergrad Minors
- 5 Courses
- 20 Credits
- 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 (pre-requisites 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–.
Timeline to Declare
- Students must have a declared major on record in order to apply for the Minor in Electrical Engineering.
- 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—or by May 1 of the junior year—to facilitate course planning.
The following courses may be used to satisfy the requirements of the EE Minor: (Note that many of these are advanced courses with pre-requisites, and students are responsible for fulfilling these)
