ECE offers three minors in accord with the general university policy that a minor requires five upper-division courses. Students must realize that these upper-division courses have extensive lower-division prerequisites (please consult the ECE undergraduate office). Students should also consult their college provost's office concerning the rules governing minors and programs of concentration.
The minors consist of 7 courses: 2 lower-division courses and 5 upper-division courses.
Electrical Engineering: Twenty units chosen from the breadth courses: ECE 101, 102, 103, 107, 109
Engineering Physics: Twenty units chosen from the junior year courses: PHYS 110A, 130A, MATH 110, ECE 101, 102, 103, 107, 109
Computer Engineering: Twenty units chosen from the junior year courses: ECE 102, CSE 100, 101, 105, 120, 140, 140L, 141, 141L
The department will consider other mixtures of upper-division ECE, CSE, physics, and mathematics courses by petition. Courses used to satisfy minor requirements must be taken for a letter grade and passed with a C- or better.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I declare a minor?
- Complete an Undergraduate Declaration of Minor using the Major/Minor Tool. For more information, click here.
