The primary purpose of this website is to provide information on the EE degree curriculum 2020 and to help EE students to register correct courses in the correct order to satisfy the curriculum requirement for EE degree.  Note that this curriculum applies from Fall 2020 Semester entrants.


A. Curriculum

1. Know your EE 2020 Curriculum  (4-year plan)

2. List of Elective Courses (African-American Studies, Social Science, Humanities, Basic Math/Science, and EE elective courses)

3. If you are a freshman, be ready with the result of Math/English placement test.   The test score will place which Math/English course you're allowed to take.  Here is an example.  If you do not start with MATH156-Calc I,  this is the sequence of taking MATH courses:  MATH005-College Algebra >> MATH007- Pre-Calc >> MATH156-Calc I.  Then you take MATH157- Calc II, followed by MATH158- Calc III.

4. Freshman English Requirements:  Take one of the following pairs in sequence: ENGW102 & ENGW103   or  ENGW104 & ENGW 105.

5. Earning 3 credits from VIP (Vertically Integrated Project) courses (EECE101, EECE201, and EECE301 - Faculty-Student Team Project (VIP) 1 cr each) would substitute for 1 EE elective course. (effective Fall 2023)


Registration Process

1. Pre-select your courses (University Class Schedule Search web site) and make sure there is no time conflict.  Use this trial schedule form (Excel or pdf or image(png)).  In this step, contact your advisor to discuss about the course selection and request for suggestion of courses.

2. Complete CEA Registration Approval Form (Fillable Pdf).  Remember (a) If you are on a scholarship, you need to take certain minimum credit hours every semester (usually 15, so please check with the financial office): (b) If you want to keep "full time" status financially, you need a minimum of 12 credit hours. 

3. Bring (or email) the signed CEA Registration form and the Trial Schedule (showing no time-conflict) to you advisor.  Once approved, your PIN for registration will be given to you, which you use for registration.   

4. If you get registration error, read the Error Message Description and, knowing what to do, fill out the CEA Registration Error Request form ( Fillable pdf) and bring/send it to the instructor (if time conflict error) or your advisor (for all other errors).
