Engineering students formally select their engineering major, or what we call “affiliate with a major”, by the end of the first semester of their sophomore year. Once you have submitted your application for affiliation, the ECE Undergraduate Coordinator reviews your grades to determine if you have satisfied the major affiliation requirements. If you are ahead or behind a semester, consult with the ECE Undergraduate Coordinator to determine appropriate coursework and procedures.
ECE Affiliation Requirements
Changes in boldface.
- Must be in good academic standing in the College of Engineering
- Must have completed with a grade of C+ or better: MATH 2930, PHYS 2213, and either ECE/ENGRD 2100, ECE 2200, or ECE/ENGRD 2300, except that for courses on this list taken in Spring 2020, a C- or an S will suffice.
- Must have an average GPA of at least 2.5 in the following courses, if completed: MATH 1920, 2930, 2940, PHYS 2213, ECE/ENGRD 2100, ENGRD 2110, ECE 2200, ECE/ENGRD 2300, CS/ENGRD 2110, ECE 2400, except that courses on this list taken S/U in Spring 2020 will not figure into the GPA computation.
If your application is approved, you will be affiliated with ECE and an ECE faculty advisor will be assigned to you. If you do not fully meet the requirements listed above, we encourage you to describe your particular circumstances during the affiliation process and we will work with you to prepare for entering the ECE major.
