The CpE program requires a minimum of 128 credit hours to complete. Students must have a grade of C or better in CS 1150, CS 1450, ECE 1411, ECE 2411 and ECE 2610, a minimum 2.0 GPA in all ECE & CS course work taken, and a minimum 2.0 GPA in all course work taken in order to graduate. Students must also complete an Exit Interview with the ECE Department to graduate.
The following courses, including any prerequistes must be completed:
Note: Other courses in CS, ECE, MAE, MATH, and PES numbered 3000+ (except MATH 3010 and 3020) may be accepted with a petition completed prior to taking the course.
Studies in the humanities and social sciences serve not only to meet the objectives of a broad education, but also to meet the objectives of the engineering profession.
College of Engineering and Applied Science students are required to take at least 15 credit hours of social sciences and humanities to be more aware of social responsibilities and able to consider related factors in the decision-making process. To ensure this, a minimum of nine (9) credit hours in social sciences and six (6) credit hours in humanities, or vice versa, must be taken; at least six (6) of these credit hours must be beyond the introductory level (2000 level or higher courses).
In place of 3 credit hours of social sciences and humanities, ID 1010 - Freshman Seminar may be taken during the fall semester of the first year in the program. The balanced adjustment between social science and humanities for students completing ID 1010 is six (6) credit hours and six (6) credit hours, respectively, with the 2000 level or higher course requirement unchanged.
