Specialty Area Requirement
All Electrical Engineering majors must complete 13 credits of 400-level ENEE technical electives. This total must include at least three credits of theory/application (Category A), one advanced laboratory (Category B), and one capstone design course (Category C).
In addition, Freshman who matriculated in Fall 2008 or after are also required to complete at least two 400-level ENEE elective courses from a single area of specialization. This requirement is intended to ensure students receive sufficient depth in their senior-level EE elective courses.
ECE has six Specialty Areas. Clicking on the links below will provide you with a list of courses in each area that can be used to satisfy the requirement.
The Specialty Area Requirement is NOT mandatory for students who matriculated prior to Fall 2008. However, if you are one of these students and you chose to satisfy the General Technical Electives requirement instead of the old Non-EE Technical Electives requirement, then you MUST also satisfy the Special Area Requirement.
