Students can also become an Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering major through a pre-major process.

  1. Students should meet with an advisor to declare a “Pre-Electrical Engineering” or “Pre-Computer Engineering” designation. Pre-majors will be eligible to enroll in all of the courses required to apply for major status.
  2. Once the pre-major courses listed below have been completed, you may then apply for major status by clicking “Apply Now” in the relevant field below.

The Academic Advisor reviews major status applications once at the end of each semester. You will not be able to register for any further ECE or CS classes until your application has been approved.

Deadline: You must submit before grades are posted the semester prior to starting the major courses. For example, if you want to start on major classes in the Spring semester, you must submit your application prior to Fall grades being posted.

To apply for major status, pre-major students must take the following courses and meet the following expectations:
