Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Minor in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) can provide engineering undergraduate students with a fundamental knowledge of ECE in electricity, signals, circuits, and systems as well as a broader knowledge in a specific area of ECE. Engineering students may earn a minor in ECE by taking two required fundamental courses, one required depth course, and two elective courses, as listed below. Typical completion of the minor will require 15-19 credits, depending on the number of laboratory courses that are selected.

Required Fundamental Courses6-7
Signals and Systems
Electrical Engineering I
and Electrical Engineering I Laboratory
Linear Circuits Analysis I
and Electrical Engineering Laboratory I
Required Depth Course (Choose one of the following):3-4
Digital Circuit Design
and Digital Circuit Design Laboratory
Electronic Devices and Circuits
and Electronic Circuits Laboratory
Electrical Engineering II *
Elective Courses6-8
**Any 300/400/500 level CEC or EE courses
Total Credits15-19

 For the purpose of this minor only, ES 405 will satisfy the CEC 220/CEC 222 or EE 302/EE 304 prerequisite requirement for ECE courses taken towards completion of the minor.


Suggested pairs of courses are maintained by the ECSSE department and are available to students from the advisor for the ECE Minor.
