The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (EE) degree requires a minimum of 128 credit hours and a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.00.
A cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher in the EE courses taken to satisfy the EE Requirements is required to qualify for graduation with the EE degree.
- Electrical Engineering (EE) Requirements (47 credit hours minimum):
- Electrical Engineering Core (24 credit hours): EE 201, EE 202, EE 207, EE 208, EE 255, EE 270, EE 301, EE 302 and EE 311.
- Electrical Engineering Seminars (1 credit hour): EE 200 and EE 400 (EE 200 is a 0 credit course).
- Senior Design Requirement (3-4 credit hours): EE 402 or CE 477. A prerequisite for all Senior Design courses is the completion of the Electrical Engineering Core Curriculum. Courses satisfying the Senior Design Requirement cannot also be used to satisfy the Electrical Engineering Laboratory Requirement below.
- Advanced Electrical Engineering Selectives (9-11 credit hours): Choose three of the following: CE 362, EE 305, EE 321, EE 382, EE 438 and EE 440. Choose 4 if both EE 438 and EE 440 selected. CE 362, EE 438, and EE 440 also contribute to fulfillment of the Electrical Engineering Upper Level Laboratory Requirement described below.
- Electrical Engineering Electives (7-10 credit hours): Additional Electrical Engineering courses to bring total Electrical Engineering credit hours to at least 47, including at least three (3) Upper-Level Laboratory courses as per the following conditions:
- Electrical Engineering Laboratory Requirement: Three Electrical Engineering Upper-Level Laboratory courses or Electrical Engineering courses with laboratory components in addition to those required as part of the Electrical Engineering Core Curriculum (EE 207, EE 208 and EE 270).
Courses with laboratory components taken as Advanced Electrical Engineering Electives, CE 362, EE 438, and EE 440, also contribute to this requirement.
- General Engineering (10 credit hours):
- CS 159 (3 credit hours) (Programming Applications for Engineers)
- Introduction to Engineering (4 credit hours): ENGR 131 (Transforming Ideas to Innovation I) and ENGR 132 (Transforming Ideas to Innovation II). Alternatively, the student may take ENGR 100 (First-Year Engineering Lectures) and ENGR 126 (Engineering Problem Solving and Computer Tools).
- Engineering Breadth Requirement (3 credit hours): Choose one (1) course from the following: ENGR 200, ENGR 297, IE 335, IE 336, MSE 230, NUCL 200, NANO 101 or CVL 355.
- Mathematics Requirement (18 credit hours): MA 165, MA 166, MA 261, MA 265 and MA 266.
- Science Requirement (15 – 16 credit hours): CHM 115, PHYS 172, PHYS 272 and one (1) of the Science Electives: BIOL 110, (BIOL 121 and BIOL 135), CHM 112, CHM 116, PHYS 322, PHYS 342 or EAPS 125.
- Liberal Arts Requirements (28 credit hours):
- English Language and Communication Skills (10 credit hours): COM 114, ENGL 100 and ENGL 106.
- General Education Requirement (18 credit hours): Students must satisfy the requirements of the General Education as per the following conditions:
- Courses must be drawn from the following General Education areas at AUM: Speech and Communication, English Language and Literature, History, Fine Arts, Physical Education, Self-Development and Life Style, Culinary Arts, Ethics, Social Sciences, Psychological Sciences, Natural Sciences, Child Development and Family Studies, Economics, Philosophy, Other Languages, and Science, Technology and Society (please refer to Course Catalogue, General Education section).
- In order to ensure sufficient exposure to General Education topics, unless otherwise specified by the degree requirements of the academic major, the student cannot take more than 2 courses from the same area/sub-area as, as shown in tables below:
- Courses that are already required under other category than General Education requirement:
- cannot be considered as a General Education course;
- do not count towards the 2-course limit in General Education requirement.
- Free Electives (up to 7 credit hours): Students are permitted up to 7 credit hours as Free Elective courses. The Free Elective can be satisfied by most courses offered by AUM with few exceptions. The general guidelines are listed as follows:
- Additional General Education Electives or Professional Electives can be used for free elective credit.
- Excess introductory engineering electives can be used for the free elective.
- The primary exceptions that are not permitted for the free elective are remedial courses like MAT 110. Remedial courses are courses that must be taken by student in order to build up certain academic knowledge or skills like math or English.
- Repeated courses are not counted as free electives.
