Major in Electrical and Computer Engineering

In addition to fulfilling the undergraduate Core Curriculum for the Bachelor of Science degree, students majoring in electrical and computer engineering must fulfill the following major requirements and complete a minimum of 190 units. For every required engineering and science course, if an associated laboratory is listed following the course description, then that laboratory is also required to fulfill the major requirements.

English

  • ENGL 181

Mathematics and Natural Science

  • MATH 11, 12, 13, 14, 51, 53
  • CSCI 163A
  • AMTH 106 (or MATH 22) and AMTH 108
  • PHYS 31, 32, 33
  • One course selected from CHEM 11 or 12, BIOL 1A, PHYS 34, 113 or 121, MATH 105 or 123

Engineering

  • ENGR 1
  • COEN 10, 11, 12, and 177
  • ELEN 20, 21, 50, 100, 115, 120, 121, 122, 133, 142, 192, 194, 195, 196

Technical Electives

Three undergraduate ELEN 100-level elective courses approved by an academic advisor. At least one must be selected from (ELEN 123, 124, 127, 153, 161). With advisor approval at most one may be selected from COEN courses. ELEN 188 and 189 may not be used as technical electives. Additional electives may be substituted, with the approval of the advisor from first-year graduate-level engineering coursework

Professional Development

A professional development experience selected from one of the following options:

  • 4 or more units in a study abroad program that does not duplicate other coursework
  • Cooperative education experience with enrollment in ELEN 188 and ELEN 189
  • 2 units in ENGR 110 (Community-Based Engineering Design)
  • Preparation for graduate study in either electrical engineering or computer science and engineering with completion of 2 or more additional units of upper-division or graduate-level courses
  • Completion of an approved minor or second major in any field of engineering or science
  • Completion of 10 or more units in the combined bachelor of science and master of science program
  • 2 units of Peer education experience
  • 2 units of undergraduate research, ELEN 199

 

 

Minor in Electrical and Computer Engineering

  • ELEN 21, 21L, 50, 50L, 120, 120L
  • Two courses selected from ELEN 122, 133, and 142, including their associated laboratory courses
  • Three additional upper-division Electrical and Computer Engineering lecture courses: (ELEN 121, 123, 124, 127, 133, 142, 153, 161)
  • Work completed to satisfy these requirements for the minor must include at least two courses beyond any free electives or other courses required to earn the bachelor's degree in the student's primary major
