    Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Minors

    Electrical Engineering Minor


    Summary

    The Electrical Engineering minor is designed to provide other engineering majors or students from other disciplines an introduction to the wide-ranging content of the electrical engineering major. The minor consists of a minimum of eight ECE courses resulting in 26 credits. There are five required courses and an additional 12 credits of elective courses.

    Prerequisites

    The minor assumes that students will have a background in mathematics and physics equivalent to that covered in the first two years of the TDEC curriculum. In mathematics, this would cover calculus (TDEC 110, 112, and 114 or MATH 121-123 and 200) and differential equations (TDEC 221 and 222, or MATH 210). Knowledge of linear algebra is also recommended. Physics requirements are TDEC 111, 113, and 115, or PHYS 111, 112, and 211. Courses taken to meet these requirements will not count toward the minor.

    Required Courses:

    ECE 200 Fundamentals of Intelligent Systems  3 credits

    ECE 201

    Fundamentals of Electrical Circuits

     3 credits

    ECES 302

    Transform Methods & Filtering

     4 credits

    ECEL 301

    ECE Laboratory I

     2 credits

    ECEL 302

    ECE Laboratory II

     2 credits

     

    Sub-total

    14 credits

    Elective Courses

    Students should choose 12 credits from 300- and/or 400-level ECE courses. These courses can come from the Computer (ECEC), Electrophysics (ECEE), Electric Power (ECEP), or Systems (ECES) groups. All prerequisites must be satisfied.

    The Electrical Engineering Minor for Computer Engineering Students:

    The University limit on overlap between major and minor programs is 9 credits. Since all of the required courses in the EE minor are also in the CE degree program, computer engineering students will be required to add at least 5 additional EE credits to their minor plan of study in consultation with their academic advisor. Computer Engineering majors may only choose their elective courses from the ECEE, ECEP, and ECES course groups.

    Computer Engineering Minor

    Summary

    The Computer Engineering minor is designed to provide students from other computer-intensive majors, such as computer science or other engineering majors, with a foundation of knowledge in the hardware portion of computer systems. The minor consists of a minimum of seven ECE courses resulting in 25 credits. There are four required courses and an additional 12 credits of elective courses.

    Prerequisites

    The minor assumes that students will have a background in mathematics, physics, and computer programming. Calculus prerequisites should include TDEC 110, 112, and 114 or MATH 121-123 and 200. Physics requirements are TDEC 111, 113, and 115, or PHYS 111, 112, and 211. Programming experience must include CS 171 at the minimum. CS 172 and CS 260 are also recommended, and are required for some upper level ECEC courses. Courses taken to meet these requirements will not count toward the minor.

    Required Courses:

    ECE 200 Fundamentals of Intelligent Systems  3 credits

    ECEC 302

    Digital System Projects

     4 credits

    ECEC 355

    Computer Structures

     4 credits

    ECEL 304

    ECE Laboratory IV
    (prereq waived for minor)

     2 credits

     

    Sub-total

    13 credits

    Elective Courses

    Students should choose an additional 12 credits from 300- and/or 400-level Computer Engineering (ECEC) courses. All prerequisites must be satisfied.

    The Computer Engineering Minor for Electrical Engineering Students:

    The University limit on the overlap between major and minor programs is 9 credits. Since 5 of the 13 required credits in the CE minor are also in the EE degree program, electrical engineering students can overlap 1 additional 4-credit ECEC course in their major plan of study. ECEC courses that are used to satisfy core or technical electives in the EE degree program, beyond this one additional course, cannot be used toward the CE minor due to the credit overlap limit.
