    The 10 elective courses shown above are distributed as follows:

        * Five approved social science and humanities courses to meet the engineering General Education Component requirement. Those courses will be distributed as follows:
             1. A minimum of two courses in humanities; one must be an English course taken in the first year.
             2. A minimum of two courses in the social sciences.
             3. One of the courses must satisfy the global and societal perspectives requirement.
        * One course at the 200 level or above in the natural sciences (physics and astronomy, chemistry, biology) or BIOL 121, BIOL 122, GEOL 103, GEOL 150.
        * At least one 400-level course in electrical engineering.
        * Three unrestricted elective courses in any department or program of the University. It is recommended that students intending to attend graduate school also should choose at least one of these courses: MATH 343, MATH 345, or MATH 362.

    *Half-credit course; all others are one-credit courses.

    Three courses in each student’s program must fulfill the University writing requirement, which includes a W1 course taken in the first year and two subsequent W2 courses..

    Electrical engineering students who wish to pursue graduate studies in bioengineering or who wish to acquire the biology and chemistry needed in preparation for work or further study in the life sciences are encouraged to take a minor in chemical and biological studies. These students will be excused from the ENGR 240 requirement.
