2023-24 University Catalog

Electrical Engineering, BS


Degree Requirements

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering follows a rigorous curriculum, requiring a minimum of 180 credit hours, which takes approximately four years to complete. To be eligible for graduation, students must maintain a 2.0 GPA. In addition, a final grade of “C” or better must be earned in all courses with CST, EE, ENGR, MATH, PHY prefixes, as well as in all technical elective courses.

All courses listed in the curriculum map for the catalog year of graduation must be completed to be eligible for graduation. Any deviations from the courses listed in the curriculum map require approval from the academic advisor, the department chair, and the Registrar’s office. Approvals are not official until entered in the official student records. When changes are made to the curriculum, students who entered the program under a previous catalog will work with their academic advisors to transition to meet the requirements of the current catalog.
