Effective Fall 2011

An academic minor in Electrical Engineering is not open to Computer Science concentrators or academic minors

Students pursuing a major in Electrical Engineering (EE), Computer Engineering (CE) and Computer Science (CS) are not eligible for the EE minor

As the lines between engineering and scientific disciplines become increasingly blurred, many students are forced to make tough decisions about which concentration to choose. An academic minor in Electrical Engineering (EE),  offered through the ECE division of  the EECS Department, is designed to provide an avenue for a diverse education for students outside of the EECS department. Due to the extensive breadth of EE discipline areas, students seeking an academic minor in EE have a spectrum of choices for the program paths they choose. Path options include Applied Electromagnetics, Circuits, Communications, Control Systems, Optics, Signal Processing, and Solid State.

Intended Audience. While the academic minor would be open to all qualified students in LSA, it is expected to be of interest primarily to students in the Physical Sciences (who both use complex electronics and signal processing to collect and analyze data, and also contribute to improved electronic devices), Mathematics (improved algorithms for a wide variety of applications including signal processing, communications, and control), and Life Sciences (electronics, signal processing, and electromagnetics for research and patient treatment). It may also be of interest for students in pre-law programs planning a career in patent law, or in other areas.

Note: Most EECS courses in the Electrical Engineering academic minor count as non-LSA credits. LSA students may use a maximum of 20 credits of non-LSA course work toward the total 120 credits required for the degree.

Minimum Grade Policy. A grade of C is required for all prerequisites and courses used to satisfy the academic minor.

Prerequisites to the Academic Minor.

  1. ENGR 101;
  2. MATH 115, 116, 215, and 216 or equivalent;
  3. PHYSICS 140/141 and 240/241 or equivalent.

LSA students are not required to take CHEM 125, 126, 130, or ENGR 100.

The EE academic minor is open to all students across campus as long as the eligibility requirements stated below are met:

  1. Students must have an average of 2.0 or higher at time of declaring the EE academic minor.
  2. Students must have completed MATH 115 and 116 and PHYSICS 140/141 prerequisites with a grade of C or better.

Academic Minor Program. A minimum of 15 credits. At least one elective course must be at the 400-level or higher.

  1. EECS 215
  2. One of the following program core courses: 216, 230, 270, 320
  3. Two electives from among the following courses, chosen in consultation with and approved by the academic minor advisor: EECS 216, 230, 270, 320, 311, 312, 330, 334, 370, 373, 411, 413, 414, 418, 419, 420, 421, 423, 425, 427, 429, 430, 434, 451, 452, 455, 460, 461, 463, 470, 530.

    Other EECS classes may be used with the prior approval of the EE Chief Program Advisor. These courses must be of similar level to this defined list. Courses which lie principally in the discipline of Computer Science will not be allowed. Students with these interests are referred to the LSA CS academic minor.

Minimum Grade Policy: A grade of C is required for all prerequisites and courses used to satisfy the academic minor.

Suggested Program Options

  1. Systems: Communications, Control, Signal Processing
  2. Electromagnetics and Optics
  3. Circuits and Solid State
  4. Energy and Power Systems
