Return to Programs by College/School Return to: Programs by College/School


Minor Requirements

Department of Electrical Engineering  

College of Engineering and Computing  

Prerequisite Courses (9 hours)

MATH 141 - Calculus I    

MATH 142 - Calculus II  

MATH 242 - Elementary Differential Equations  

Minor Requirements (18 Hours)

The minor in Electrical Engineering requires the completion of at least 18 credit hours consisting of four core courses and two approved elective courses that make a coherent sequence, composed as follows:

Required Core Courses (12 hours) 

ELCT 102 - Electrical Science  

ELCT 221 - Circuits  

ELCT 222 - Signals and Systems  

ELCT 371 - Electronics  

Required Intermediate Course (3 hours)

Any ELCT course at the 300-level.

Required Advanced Course (3 hours)

Any 500-level ELCT course.

Note that 500-level courses generally have a prerequisite at the 300-level, so the Intermediate and Advanced courses should be chosen consistently. Some 500-level courses may have two prerequisites at the 300-level, which could then require taking an additional three hours.

Recommended or examples of sequences

The following sequences of Intermediate and Advanced courses are suggested as examples. Many other sequences are possible. A student’s particular sequence should be chosen in consultation with an EE faculty advisor.
