Minimum required: 137 semester credit hours

Admission Requirements

  1. The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in Electrical Engineering requires admission to the university and admission to the program.  Information about the program admissions can be found at: http://mycatalog.txstate.edu/undergraduate/science-engineering/ingram-school/#admissionstext
  2. In order to declare Electrical Engineering as a major, students must meet one of the following prerequisites:
  • ACT Math score of 24 or higher,
  • SAT Math score of 550 (re-centered) or higher, or
  • credit for one of the following Math courses with a grade of "C" or higher:
MATH 1315College Algebra3
MATH 1317Plane Trigonometry3
MATH 1319Mathematics for Business and Economics I3
MATH 1329Mathematics for Business and Economics II3

    3.  Students who do not meet the above prerequisites may choose Pre-Electrical Engineering as their major. Pre-Electrical         Engineering students who complete one of the following Math courses with a grade of "C" or higher may declare Electrical Engineering as their major:

MATH 1315College Algebra3
MATH 1317Plane Trigonometry3
MATH 1319Mathematics for Business and Economics I3

General Requirements

  1. The general education core curriculum courses are listed in the degree plan below along with the statewide component code number. See the General Education Core Curriculum section of this catalog for the Texas State requirements and options in the core curriculum, including Honors courses.
  2. Majors must complete a minimum of 36 advanced hours (3000 or 4000 level courses).
  3. Nine semester credit hours must be writing intensive (WI).
  4. All students in the Electrical Engineering degree programs must complete Electrical Engineering (EE) course prerequisites with a grade of “C” or higher.
  5. If two years of the same language are taken in high school, then no additional language hours will be required for the degree. In the absence of such high school language, two semesters of the same modern language must be taken at the college level.
  6. The Electrical Engineering degree programs include all the courses required for an Applied Mathematics minor.
