Advisor Approved Electives

  • 15 credits of EE or BE Electives (4000-Level or Above) 
  • 4 credits Approved Technical Electives.5
  • 3 credits of general electives (1000 level or higher; any Math elective must be 2000 or higher)

Total Credits: 128 Hours

PHYS 1210: no credit can be earned in PHYS 1210 if taken after ES 2120. PHYS 1220 should be taken before or concurrently with ES 2210.

One course from the ECE Math/Science Elective List. ABET requires a minimum of 30 hours of Math/ Science Electives.

Or any ES, EE, BE course (>2000 level), or COSC 3011 or COSC 3750 

4 To meet the COM3 requirement with EE 4820 and EE 4830, the COM2 course must be taken before EE 4820.  Also, EE 4820 and EE 4830 must be taken in sequence. COM 2 grade of C or better is required.

Any course from the approved ECE technical elective list. Credit can be earned for professional internships or CO-OPs. Internships for Credit must go through EE 4800

Online courses taken outside of the Wyoming system will not be considered for preapproved Transfer.

Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA 2.000 in all Engineering courses for graduation.

A grade of C or better is required for all prerequisite courses.

Students must also achieve a grade of C or better in all required mathematics courses.

Students must complete a minimum of 42 hours of upper division coursework, 30 of which must from the University of Wyoming.
