Electrical engineering encompasses disciplines such as electronics, communication, control, digital systems, and signal/image processing. A minor in electrical engineering provides a foundation to explore specialized material in electrical engineering. The minor provides students from other engineering or non-engineering disciplines an introduction to the wide-ranging content of the electrical engineering major.
Notes about this minor:
- The minor is closed to students majoring in computer engineering technology, electrical engineering, or electrical engineering technology.
- Posting of the minor on the student's academic transcript requires a minimum GPA of 2.0 in the minor.
- Notations may appear in the curriculum chart below outlining pre-requisites, co-requisites, and other curriculum requirements (see footnotes).
|MATH-182||Project-based Calculus II|
|PHYS-212||University Physics II|
|Choose three of the following:|
|EEEE-120||Digital Systems I|
|EEEE-220||Digital Systems II|
|EEEE-374||EM Fields and Transmission Lines|
|EEEE-420||Embedded Systems Design|
* Additional prerequisites may be required based on the choice of electrical engineering electives.
Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only
Effective fall 2013, RIT converted its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.
A minor in electrical engineering exposes students to the fundamentals of electrical engineering and provides a foundation to explore specialized material in electrical engineering professional electives or graduate courses.
