Notes

 

a Selected students may be invited to take PHYS 123, 124 in place of PHYS 121 and PHYS 122.

b Students may replace this class with STAT 333 Uncertainty in Engineering and Science if approved by their advisor.

c Technical electives will be chosen to fulfill the depth requirement and otherwise increase the student’s understanding of electrical engineering. Courses used to satisfy the depth requirement must come from the department’s list of depth areas and related courses. Technical electives not used to satisfy the depth requirement are more generally defined as any course related to the principles and practice of electrical engineering. This includes all EECS courses at the 200 level and above and can include courses from other programs. All non-EECS technical electives must be approved by the student’s advisor.

Co-op students may obtain credit for the design component of EECS 399 Engineering Projects II if their co-op assignment included significant design responsibility; however, the student is still responsible for such course requirements as reports, presentations and ethics assignments. Design credit and fulfillment of remaining course responsibilities are arranged through the senior project instructor.

e B.S./M.S. students may double count EECS 651 M.S. Thesis to fulfill the EECS 399 requirement.

f At least 10 of the 14 required Electrical Engineering courses (EECS 281, 245, 246, 309, 313, 321, 398, 399 and the six technical electives) in the Electrical Engineering B.S. program must be satisfied by courses in the EECS department.
