Electrical Engineering Curriculum Map Prior to Fall 2021

The curriculum sequence mapped below is a sample sequence, as all Grainger Engineering students work with a department academic advisor to achieve their educational goals, specific to their needs and preparation. Before reviewing the maps below, students should find their effective Academic Catalog Year. When clicking any links referenced in the maps below that take students to the Academic Catalog Year pages, they should be mindful of which Academic Catalog year is displayed.

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.

  • 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 http://catalog.illinois.edu/general-information/degree-general-education-requirements/ 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.
  • For more details about the curriculum, visit ECE's website.
