University Requirements:

College Requirements:

  • The College of Engineering requires nine additional breadth credits (21 credits total including the University Breadth requirements) (minimum grade of C-).
    • These nine credits may be selected in any combination from the University Breadth Requirements  list and the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement List  in any category except Math, Natural Sciences and Technology.
    • Of the 21 credits, six credits must be at the Upper Level, defined as:
      • any 300-level or higher course on the University Breadth Requirement list (excluding Math, Natural Sciences and Technolgy courses)
      • any 300-level or higher course on the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement list (excluding Math, Natural Sciencs and Technology courses)
      • any foreign language instruction course at the 107 level or higher as designated on the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement list (some courses above the 107 level do NOT count toward this requirement because they are taught in English).
    • A maximum of two courses (six credits) can be taken from the Career and Professional Preparation sub-section of the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement list to satisfy the College of Engineering addtional breadth requirement.
    • Of the 21 credits, three credits may be used to satisfy the University Multicultural Requirement (recommended for timely progress toward degree completion.)
    • With few exceptions, students may not use courses from their major to satisfy Breadth Requirement coursework.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Courses taken from the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement list can ONLY count toward the additional nine credits of breadth the College of Engineering requires for its majors. They CANNOT count for University Breadth.

Academic Standards

Students pursuing any engineering major (except Computer Science or Information Systems) must have at least a 2.0 grade point average in all engineering, mathematics, and science courses used to fulfill graduation requirements. If a course is repeated, only the last grade will be used to compute the engineering grade point average; all grades are used to compute the University’s cumulative grade point index. Credit from courses taken pass/fail cannot be used to complete any engineering degree requirement, unless the course is only offered pass/fail in the engineering curriculum.

Major Requirements:

Minimum grade of C- required in core courses and prerequisite courses (CPEG 202 , ELEG 205 , MATH 241 , MATH 242 , MATH 243 , MATH 351 , PHYS 207 , and PHYS 208 ).

Design Requirement (DLE):

In addition to the content of the normal program, every student must take six credits in ELEG courses designated as “design.” Senior Design I, ELEG 498  (three credits) will be offered in the fall semester and Senior Design II, ELEG 499  (three credits) will be offered in the spring semester.

Technical Electives:

In addition to the design requirement, each student, in consultation with their advisor, must select a program of technical electives (15 credits) satisfying the following requirements:

  • Three credits in 300-level or above ELEG or CPEG courses.
  • At least six additional credits in 400-level or above ELEG or CPEG courses.
  • Six credits in approved general technical electives.

Approved general technical electives are mathematics, science, computer science, and engineering courses with technical content typical of a 300-level or above engineering course. The list below includes frequently selected approved general technical electives. Electives not listed must be formally submitted and  approved by the Associate Chair for Undergraduates.


After required courses are completed, sufficient elective credits must be taken to meet the minimum credit requirement for the degree.

Credits to Total a Minimum of 125
