General Requirements

  1. This degree program 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. All Electrical Engineering majors must complete Electrical Engineering (EE) course prerequisites with a grade of “C” or higher.
  3. A minimum of 9 writing intensive hours and a total of 36 advanced hours are required to graduate. An advanced course is one that is numbered above 3000 and below 5000.
  4. 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.
  5. Electrical Engineering degrees include all the courses required for an Applied Mathematics Minor.
