Acceptance into a Department requires that a student have a 2.0 GPA in the prescribed set of courses totaling 31 semester hours in Engineering Fundamentals. In addition, the student must be in good standing with the university (university GPA ≥ 2.0). This course is a General Education requirement for the program; see http://www.louisville.edu/provost/GER/ for the listing, by academic year, of Arts/CD/Hum/SBS Electives which satisfy the University-wide General Education requirements. Note that the 12-hour total for the Arts/CD/HUM/SBS electives assumes the use of double counting of CD with another category. The Department recommends COMM 112 over COMM 111. Students completing ENGL 105 in lieu of ENGL 101 and ENGL 102 satisfy the General Education and Engineering Fundamentals requirements for Written Communication. However, an additional 3-hr Writing (WR) course or honors Written Communication (WC) course is needed to satisfy program credit hour requirements. A current list of acceptable WR and WC courses is at http://louisville.edu/speed/academics/advising/ENGL105.html. ENGL 303 (Technical Writing) or ENGL 306 (Business Writing) is recommended as the additional course for EE students. These electives must be chosen from the lists of approved courses available in the Department and online at https://louisville.edu/speed/electrical/students/application-information/bsee-program-information/ece_electives.pdf. Students must take 3 hours of CECS/Mathematics/Science Electives and 3 hours of Engineering Science Electives. An additional 3 hours of electives must be taken from either category. Some students may wish to use these electives toward satisfying the requirements for a minor in Mathematics or Physics; additional information is available in the Department. Candidates for the Bachelor of Science degree must be in Good Standing (university GPA ≥ 2.00) and must attain a grade point average of at least 2.00 for all courses used to satisfy degree requirements.
