Four-Year Graduation Plan
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering requires of its students to develop an individual graduation plan. The purpose of these plans is to help students explore opportunities, work efficiently towards their goals, and maximize their academic achievements. All first semester freshmen and transfer students must complete a plan and will not be allowed register until they have a completed and approved plan of study.
The plan will be reviewed by the student and their advisor on a regular basis and revised, if necessary, as individual circumstances change. Normally, a student is expected to complete their degree requirements in no more than four years or eight semesters. Students with exceptional circumstances (such as double majors, special programs, or an inability to attend full-time) may be granted exceptions. However, mandatory advising will be required of any student failing to complete their degree in five years or ten semesters. Students are responsible for beginning each semester with a reviewed and approved plan and they will be required to complete a specific number of courses each academic year. For more information, see the University Student Academic Success/Degree Completion Policy.
Developing and completing a graduation plan has many benefits. First, it will help you better understand the requirements for your major. Second, it will force you to set precise deadlines by which you can measure your progress. This in turn will help sustain and build your motivation. Finally, a detailed plan of action can help you stay focused - resulting in better academic results and a timely graduation.
Use the links below to access the detailed instructions for developing and completing your four-year plan. Select either Computer Engineering (CP) or Electrical Engineering (EE). If you are planning to pursue a second major or minor in another discipline, be sure to consult with the relevant department(s) to ensure you meet all program requirements in a timely fashion. NOTE: Because the curricula of CP and EE are so similar, students are not allowed to pursue a double major in these disciplines. Likewise, students are not allowed to double major in Computer Engineering and Computer Science. However, some students do choose to double major in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
