Minor in Electrical Engineering

The purpose of the minor in Electrical Engineering is to give students in other fields of study a good basic background in Electrical Engineering. The 16-unit core provides an introduction to four basic areas of modern Electrical Engineering - basic electrical circuit theory, electronics, linear signals and systems, and digital logic and computer architecture. Elective courses provide opportunities for additional breadth or depth in a particular area. Students interested in the Electrical Engineering minor must meet with the Program Head of Electrical and Computer Engineering and complete the Electrical Engineering Minor Program Approval Form Download [PDF 26 KB]. Revision of the form requires the approval of the Program Head.

The minor is intended for students who have satisfied the following prerequisite requirements:

Math 226Calculus I (4)
Math 227Calculus II (4)
Math 228Calculus III (4)
Math 245Elementary Differential Equations and Linear Algebra (3)
Phys220/222Physics I with Calculus (4)
Phys230/232Physics II with Calculus (4)

The minor may be satisfied by a minimum of 22 units (not including prerequisite units) distributed as follows:

Core requirements
ENGR 205 Electric Circuits (3)
ENGR 206 Circuits and Instrumentation Lab (1)
ENGR 305 Linear System Analysis (3)
ENGR 315 System Analysis Lab (1)
ENGR 353 Electronics (3)
ENGR 301 Electronics Lab (1)
