Electrical Engineering Major, BS in Electrical Engineering


Students in the senior year may choose from a wide spectrum of courses covering all aspects of electrical and computer engineering. Students must meet the design, depth, and breadth requirements of the department in their selection of these courses. The design requirement is met through a major engineering design experience in Electrical and Computer Engineering 400, Senior Design, and through the design process being integrated into specified courses throughout the program. Students are encouraged to discuss an appropriate senior program with their advisors.

Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering Honors Concentrations


Students who wish to pursue the honors electrical engineering concentration, honors computer engineering concentration, and honors computer science concentration will normally be part of the Chancellor’s Honors Program.

Candidates for the honors electrical engineering concentration and honors computer engineering concentration must complete the first year courses for honors concentration in the engineering majors. Candidates for the honors computer science concentration must meet the first year requirements for the Chancellor’s Honors Program.

In addition to satisfying the requirements described above, candidates for these three honors concentrations must also satisfy the following requirements.

  • Two upper-division honors courses in computer science or electrical and computer engineering via Honors-by-Contract or Honors Independent study, or equivalent. The contract or independent study must be submitted to the Chancellor’s Honors Program for approval by the third week of the semester.
  • Complete a 3-credit hour senior project course. This can normally be completed as part of the capstone design course, ECE 400  for computer engineering and electrical engineering majors or COSC 400  for computer science majors.
