ECE Minor

The minor in ECE will provide an opportunity to learn about electrical engineering (EE) and computer engineering (CompE) disciplines and techniques. Students in the ECE minor will take a common set of required courses in circuits, programming, and probability or statistics. Depth in the ECE minor is established by an advanced core requirement and an advanced elective in EE or CompE.
