ECE Advising

Your success as an electrical engineering or computer engineering student starts with a plan. Our team of academic advisors is dedicated to providing high-quality service to each student. Advisors are knowledgeable about navigating the path to graduation and can provide resources for academic and personal success. We can help with registration and basic questions.

Electrical and Computer Engineering Programs

As you go through our programs, we strongly advise you to meet with an advisor regularly and plan out the courses you are going to take.  You can find sample graduation plans based on the 2022-2023 program requirements below.

  

Applying to the Professional Program

The Professional Program refers to the major-specific courses in the junior and senior years in the EE and CE programs.  Students must be accepted into the Professional Program before they can take these courses.  After completion of the Pre-Professional Program, students are required to apply for admittance to the Professional Program.  A minimum GPA of 2.8 in the Pre-Professional Required Courses listed above is required for application to the Professional Program.

Requirements to be accepted into the Professional Program

  • 2.8 GPA in the Pre-Professional Engineering courses
  • C or better in all Pre-Professional Engineering courses

Required EE Pre-Professional Program courses

  • CHEM 1210 - Principles of Chemistry I
  • MATH 1210 - Calculus I
  • MATH 1220 - Calculus II
  • MATH 2210 - Calculus III
  • MATH 2250 - Linear Algebra and Differential Equations (or both MATH 2270 and MATH 2280)
  • PHYS 2210 - Physics for Scientists and Engineers I
  • PHYS 2220 - Physics for Scientists and Engineers II
  • ECE 1000 - Introduction to Electrical Engineering (or ENGR 1000)
  • ECE 1270 - Introduction to Electrical Circuits
  • ECE 1400 - Fundamentals of Engineering Computing
  • ECE 2260 - Fundamentals of Electrical Circuits
  • ECE 2700 - Digital Circuits

Required CE Pre-Professional Program courses

  • CS 1400 - Programming I
  • CS 1410 - Structured Computing in a Selected Language
  • MATH 1210 - Calculus I
  • MATH 1220 - Calculus II
  • MATH 2250 - Linear Algebra and Differential Equations (or both MATH 2270 and MATH 2280)
  • PHYS 2210 - Physics for Scientists and Engineers I
  • PHYS 2220 - Physics for Scientists and Engineers II
  • ECE 1000 - Introduction to Electrical Engineering (or ENGR 1000)
  • ECE 1270 - Introduction to Electrical Circuits
  • ECE 1400 - Fundamentals of Engineering Computing
  • ECE 2260 - Fundamentals of Electrical Circuits
  • ECE 2700 - Digital Circuits

Applications to the Professional Program

Please download, print, and fill out the application form.

  

If you have completed the required courses, please submit the completed form to Dr. Eric Gibbons or Susan Foss.  

You may apply to the Professional Program prior to completing all of the required courses in the Pre-Professional Program.  This preliminary acceptance is contingent on completion of the required courses with a C grade or better.  A preliminary acceptance to the Professional Program will allow you to enroll in upper-division courses.   If you have not yet completed a course in the pre-professional program list the grade as a C when filling out the application and include that placeholder grade when computing your GPA.  A GPA of 2.8 is still required for acceptance to the professional program.  If your GPA falls below 2.8 with these placeholder C grades, wait until you have the final grades after taking the courses before you apply.  

If you are a transfer student, please reach out to the program coordinator or advisors on how to fill out the application.  

Exceptions

  • Students who have preliminary acceptance into the professional program may enroll in ECE 3110 and ECE 2260 simultaneously.
  • Students may enroll in either ECE 3610 or ECE 3710 without status in the Professional Program provided they satisfy the individual course prerequisites.
