Bachelor of Science, Electrical Engineering (Vancouver only) (121 Credits)

Students who have completed at least 30 semester hours of course work and who have completed CHEM 105; CS 251; ECE 214, ECE 234, ECE 260, MATH 273, and PHYSICS 202, or their equivalents, are eligible for certification into the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program. All courses required for certification must be completed with a grade of C or better. Enrollment in many upper-division electrical engineering courses is restricted to certified majors or minors in electrical or mechanical engineering.

When it becomes necessary to limit enrollment, the overall GPA as well as the GPA for the prerequisite courses listed will be important factors. Students who have not completed all of the prerequisite courses will be placed in a pre-engineering major.

No courses listed in this schedule of studies may be taken on a pass/fail basis. All upper-division electrical engineering courses must be completed with a minimum 2.0 average GPA.
