Engineering First Year
CODA is the admissions application to be accepted into an actual department. Students wishing to major in ECE regardless of being EFY (i.e. Exploratory studies or any other major) should take CODA classes and can apply to CODA just like EFY students.
EFY students have priority over other students in registration for ECE classes, but others can get permission to take ECE courses from the EFY Advisor in ECE.
ECE 200 Course
Both Electrical and Computer Engineering majors take the same foundation courses (Intro to ECE Laboratory, Computer Systems Programming, Electric Circuits, Foundation of Logic Design, and Analytical Foundations of ECE.
ECE 300 Courses
Students must CODA into EE, EE REES, or CPE to take 300 courses. Students wishing to dual-enroll must follow the CPE curriculum, and adding 3 extra classes—1 foundation elective and two electrical engineering electives.
Students can also follow the Electrical Engineering pathway with a concentration in REES.
Students doing really well (> 3.5 GPA) can enroll in the Accelerated Master’s degree and can complete a bachelor’s and master’s degree in 5 years
EE students must take 2 courses within a specialization area. CPE students must take 2 courses in any area of Computer Engineering.
