Electrical Engineering Minor

Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers an electrical engineering (EE) minor for engineering students who are not majoring in electrical or computer engineering. The minor will be of interest to undergraduate engineering students who wish to develop expertise in areas such as electronics, instrumentation, control, signal processing, or digital devices. Requirements for engineering physics are slightly different than those for other students because of the extensive overlap between the two programs.

All students interested in declaring a minor in electrical engineering should do so on their application for graduation.

Required Courses

Required Courses:


Students can select the three electives from any courses offered in electrical engineering. Students must obtain a QPA average of at least 2.0 in the courses required for the minor, with a passing grade (D- or higher) in all courses. Since most EE courses have specific prerequisites, students should be sure that they have the required courses for the electives they wish to take.

The suggestions below are appropriate for students with interests in a particular area, and they meet prerequisite requirements:

Special Notes for Engineering Physics students

The requirements for the electrical engineering minor for students in the Engineering Physics Program include (in addition to the EE courses that are already part of their degree requirements):

Since engineering physics students take ECE 0031  and several other ECE courses as part of their degree requirements, they need only complete the two extra courses listed above to obtain the EE minor.
