 Experiential Learning Elective-The experiential learning electives are meant to give students an opportunity to participate in service learning, entrepreneurship, innovation, and research opportunities.   Allowable courses are listed below.  Other courses may be allowed if a written petition is submitted to the faculty advisor by the student and is approved by the EE faculty.

Cooperative Experiences

  • CP 297/397/497 Cooperative Education (1-3 cr)

Engineering Service Learning and Community Engagement

  • GE/IS 283L Community Design Projects I Lab (1 cr)

Industrial Engineering

  • IENG 301/302 Basic Engineering Economics (2/3 cr)

Undergraduate Research and Innovation in Electrical Engineering

  • EE 292, EE 392, & EE 492 Topics (1-4 cr)
  • EE 498 Undergraduate Research/Scholarship (1-4 cr)

Free Elective- Free electives are meant to allow students to have a broader educational experience.  A free elective can be from any college level course 100 level or above.

Technical Elective- Technical electives are meant to support electrical engineering emphasis area(s).  They may be from any science or engineering course 200 level or above that does not duplicate the content of any other course required for graduation, with the exception of military science courses.

Electrical Engineering Emphasis Elective-The electrical engineering (EE) emphasis electives are meant to allow students to emphasize areas in electrical engineering at a more advanced level.  Any EE 4xx, 5xx, or 6xx course may be used toward the EE emphasis electives requirement with the exceptions of EE 464 and EE 465.  A maximum of four (4) co-op credits, EE 491/591/691, EE 492/592/692, and/or EE 498 may be used toward the EE emphasis electives requirement if a written petition is submitted to the faculty advisor by the student and is approved by the EE faculty.
