Additional Requirements

  1. A grade of C or better must be earned in this ECE pre-requisite class.
  2. A 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. To be fulfilled by: Economics 1014, 1015 or 1024
  6. Physics Math Elective
  7. If qualified to dual enroll, also take 2 ECE 4000 as 7000
  • Students can take Physics 4100 or ECE 3510 with Director of Undergraduate Studies consent. Students may not take both Physics 4100 and ECE 3510 for credit in this program.
  • 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.
