Additional Requirements

  1. A final grade of C or better must be earned in this ECE pre-requisite class.
  2. A final grade of C- or better must be earned in this pre-requisite class.
  3. Constitution Requirement -to be fulfilled by Hist. 1100, 1200, 1400, 2210, 2440, 4000, 4220, 4230, or Pol. Sc. 1100 or 2100
    • All engineering students must take 9 credit hours in each of two areas:
      • Social/Behavioral Science
      • Humanities/Fine Arts
    • One course must be an upper level course: 2000, 3000 or 4000. One SBS course must fulfill the Constitution Requirement. There must be at least 2 departments represented in each of the 9 hour blocks. Engineering students may elect to fulfill the humanities and fine arts requirement by satisfying at least 12 hours of foreign language (achieving proficiency). The language option fulfills the upper level course requirements and exempts the student from having two departments represented in that block.
  4. Tech Elective: at least one 4000+ course from each of at least 2 ECE focus areas.
  5. Flexible Tech Electives: Any approved upper division (2000+) course in Math, Physics, Biological, Chemical, Civil, Industrial or Mechanical Engineering or 3000+ ECE or CS courses.
  • Students are required to take 2 writing intensive (WI) courses, with at least 1 course in the student’s major area. The second WI course may be taken inside or outside the major area. A grade of C- or better must be earned for a course to satisfy the WI requirement.
  • All courses taken on any of the four campuses in the University of Missouri system, including grades of “F” for courses subsequently passed, will be included in calculation of student MU GPA’s, with the exception of MU courses repeated, in accordance with the Course Repeat Policy for Undergraduates.
  • Engineering GPA is calculated using the highest grade earned in each course delivered by engineering college on any of the four UM campuses.
