Notes

Before reviewing the links, students should find their effective Academic Catalog Year. When clicking any links referenced below that take students to the Academic Catalog Year pages, they should be mindful of which Academic Catalog year is displayed.

  1. External transfer students take ENG 300.
  2. MATH 220 may be substituted. MATH 220 is appropriate for students with no background in calculus. 4 of 5 credit hours count towards degree.
  3. Additional coursework, subject to the Grainger College of Engineering restrictions to Free Electives, so that there are at least 128 credit hours earned toward the degree.
  4. RHET 105 (or an alternative Composition I sequence) is taken either in the first or second semester of the first year, according to the student's UIN (Spring if UIN is Odd). General Education Elective is taken the other semester. Composition I guidelines can be found at Degree and General Education Requirements under Written Communication Requirement. 
  5. General education: Students must complete the Campus General Education requirements including the campus general education language requirement. ECE 445 or combination of ECE 496 & ECE 499 satisfies a technical core requirement and the Campus General Education Advanced Composition requirement.  
  6. MATH 213 may be substituted.
  7. MATH 416 may be taken instead.
  8. STAT 410 may be substituted.
  9. Technical elective credits totaling 30 hours, selected from department approved list.
  10. Design Elective chosen from the list including ECE 411, ECE 445 or combination of ECE 496 and ECE 499. See degree requirements for details.
