Minor in Electrical Engineering


  • A Minor in Electrical Engineering is earned through completion of 20 credits.
  • No more than 8 credits may overlap between a student’s major and minor.
  • A student must be at least a Sophomore and have a declared major on record in order to apply for a minor.
  • Students are expected to obtain the necessary background (pre-requisites or equivalents) to complete their chosen minor program.
  • A student’s Grade Point Average (GPA) across all 20 credits for the minor must be 2.00 or higher to earn the minor.
  • Applications for a Minor in Electrical Engineering must be approved by the Associate Chair of Electrical & Computer Engineering Undergraduate Programs.
  • It is recommended that students interested in pursuing a Minor in Electrical Engineering apply as early as possible in their degree program in order to facilitate course planning, but in no case later than the first week in October of a student’s senior year.
  • Courses that are core requirements for the student’s major (i.e., not an elective or part of a restricted elective) may not be used to fulfill requirements for the EE Minor.
  • The following courses may be used to satisfy the requirements of the minor:
    • ENC EC 311: Logic Design
    • ENG EC 401: Signals & Systems
    • ENG EC 402: Control Systems
    • ENG EC 410: Electronics
    • ENG EC 412: Analog Electronics
    • ENG EC 416: Digital Signal Processing
    • ENG EC 417: Electrical Energy Systems
    • ENG EC 450: Microprocessors
    • ENG EC 455: Electromagnetics I
    • ENG EC 456: Electromagnetics II
    • ENG EC 470: Sensors in Space
    • ENG EC 471: Physics of Semiconductor Devices
    • ENG EC 562: Engineering Optics
    • ENG EC 583: Power Electronics
    • ENG EC 591: Photonics Laboratory
    • ENG EK 481: Intro to Nanotechnology
    • Additional ENG EC 500-level courses, by petition
  • Please note: The following courses overlap too much for credit to be given for more than one course from each list (1-2) below. Students are expected to complete the course appropriate to their major.
    1. ENG BE 401, ENG EC 401
    2. ENG BE 402, ENG EC 402, ENG ME 403, ENG ME 404
