Electrical Engineering Curriculum Map

The curriculum sequence mapped below is a suggested sequence, as all Grainger Engineering students work with a department academic advisor to achieve their educational goals, specific to their needs and preparation.

Static version of curriculum map available here. Departmental curriculum map available here.

  • Course prerequisite chain
  • Immediate prerequisite(s) (or concurrent registration allowed if listed in the same semester)
  • Concurrent registration required
  • Postrequisite course sequence


  • 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 your UIN is Odd). General Education Elective is taken the other semester. Composition I guidelines can be found at under Written Communication Requirement.
  • Advanced Composition may be satisfied by completing ECE 445, or a course in either the general education or free elective categories which has the Advanced Composition designation.
  • STAT 410 may be substituted for ECE 313.
  • Technical elective credits totaling 32 hours, selected from department approved list. 6 hours of non-ECE courses, 3 courses chosen from the "3-of-5" list, 3 ECE Lab courses, and a total of at least 20 hours of ECE courses. More information here.
  • ECE 445 may be substituted with (ECE 496 and ECE 499) or two semesters (6 hours) of an approved section of ENG 491.
