The minor in Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) requires EITHER the successful completion of 15 credits in Computer or Electrical Engineering courses OR the successful completion of 12 credits in Computer or Electrical Engineering courses and the successful completion of MATH 242 , CISC 181 or PHYS 208 . Miscellaneous transfer elective credits (generally 166T, 266T, 366T, or 466T credits) that do not transfer to a specific University of Delaware course DO NOT count towards the minor.
To see a list of approved courses, please view Bachelor of Electrical Engineering or Bachelor of Computer Engineering .
Students pursuing the minor can get advice from the ECE office or from the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department.
The minor is not available to students majoring in Electrical Engineering (ELEG) or Computer Engineering (CPEG).
Accomplishment of a minor in Electrical & Computer Engineering has many advantages but it must be understood that meeting the requirements for a minor in Electrical & Computer Engineering without fulfilling the remaining requirements for an accredited engineering degree does not provide the breadth and depth of knowledge required of an electrical or a computer engineer.
For students in other majors, such as Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or Computer Science, a minor in ECE will help expand their knowledge and capabilities and make them more desirable employees in many jobs.
