Course Information


Academic Standards

To matriculate out of the general engineering program and into the electrical engineering program, students must earn a specified Core Grade Point Average (C.G.P.A.) in the following core courses:

  • MATH 2640 (MAT 221) Calculus and Analytic Geometry I
  • MATH 2740 (MAT 222) Calculus and Analytic Geometry II
  • CHEMISTRY 1450 (CHE 165) Chemistry for Engineers
  • GE 1000 Engineering Success Skills*
  • GE 1030 Introduction to Engineering Projects*
  • ENGLISH 1130 (ENG 101) Freshman Composition

* (GE 1000 + GE 1030 = EGR 105 Engineering Fundamentals)

Twice a year, the electrical engineering department establishes a minimum C.G.P.A. required for admission to its program at the end of the semester.  Admission to the electrical engineering program is based on the program C.G.P.A. requirement in effect during the semester in which the student completes the general engineering requirements.  As of Fall 2013, the C.G.P.A. is 2.50.

All required electrical engineering courses must be completed with a grade of “C-” or better:  1020, 1210, 2210, 2220, 3020, 3140, 3320 and 3770.

Students must receive a “C-” or better in these courses when used as prerequisites for electrical engineering courses:  Calculus I, II, and III, Differential Equations and Physics II.

Students may get a “D” in ELECTENG 3130, 3410, 3780, 4610, PHYSICS 3140 and COMPUTER 1430 as a graduation requirement, BUT, if used as a prerequisite or corequisite of an electrical engineering course, the course(s) must be completed with a “C-” or better.  A grade of “D” is allowed in any other 4000-level course in electrical engineering.

Students must also have an average G.P.A. of 2.00 or higher in electrical engineering courses.
