Special Note on General Technical Electives
(For students who matriculated prior to Fall 2010)
The Category F requirement has been revised. Students who matriculated prior to Fall 2010 may take advantage of the revision but there is a condition based upon your status as regards ENEE307. The condition is outlined below after a brief explanation of the change.
Students who matriculated prior to Fall 2010 are subject to the rules of the old Category F requirement. This non-ECE Engineering category required CP students to complete at least one engineering course outside of electrical engineering or computer science. This restrictive category has been revised for new freshman entering in Fall 2010 and after.
The new Category F, or General Technical Elective requirement, is much more flexible than the old one. Any courses approved for the old Category F requirement will satisfy the new requirement. More significantly, upper-level ENEE and CMSC courses can now be used to satisfy Category F. In addition, a wide range of upper-level courses from other technical disciplines outside of engineering can also be used. Visit the new Category F requirement webpage for a full explanation.
The following conditions apply for students who wish to take advantage of the new Category F: General Technical Elective requirement:
- Students who completed ENEE307 prior to Fall 2010
Any student who has completed ENEE307 prior to Fall 2010 may take advantage of the new Category F requirement without restriction.
- Students who will complete ENEE307 in Fall 2010 or after
Students who will complete ENEE307 in Fall 2010 or after will be required to complete one 400-level advanced lab. Thus, you will need to complete one of the courses listed under the new Category D: Advanced Laboratory requirement. The credits for this advanced lab course may be used towards the total credits required for the Computer Engineering Technical Electives. Thus, this does not require you to complete additional credits for the CP Technical Electives requirement.
No special permission is required to take advantage of this change in the curriculum so long as the conditions listed above are adhered to. Contact an ECE advisor if you have any quesitons or concerns about these changes.
