ENGR 2196Technical Communication3
or ENGR 2996 Honors Technical Communication by Design
ENGR 4296Senior Design Project II3
or ENGR 4996 Honors Senior Design Project II

College Requirements

The degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering may be conferred upon satisfactory completion of a minimum of 128 semester hours of credit with a minimum GPA of 2.0 overall and in the major.
