Technical Electives (10 hours)*

Ten (10) additional hours of EEE or EEL 4000- and 5000-level electrical or computer engineering courses. No more than ONE (1) hour of independent study in electrical engineering may be used.
For more information, view the Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering Technical Electives List
*12 hours for transfer students.

For more information, view the EE Degree Requirement Check Sheet, which is to be used as a guideline and may change without notice. For TRANSFER STUDENTS, they can use the EE Degree Transfer Requirement Check Sheet.

The ECE Undergraduate Office will always have the most current information.

Grade Requirements

Courses in engineering core require a grade of C (2.0) or better. A minimum GPA of 2.25 is required in the electrical engineering major courses.

Departmental Residency Requirement: At least 32 hours of electrical engineering coursework must be completed in the ECE Department at UCF.

EE Transfer of Credit: Courses with a common course number taken at any Florida State University System (SUS) institution or Florida community college are automatically transferable. Students with a Bachelor of Science from an accredited institution or an Associate of Arts degree from a Florida SUS institution or Florida community college automatically satisfy the GEP. Substitutions for GEP must be approved through Academic Services, Millican Hall (MH) 210.

Substitutions for electrical engineering requirements are on a course-by-course basis and MUST be approved by the EE Undergraduate Coordinator. Instructions for this process are in the ECE undergraduate suite in Harris Corporation Engineering Center (HEC 345). The decision is typically based on the degree of similarity of the two courses both in content and level of presentation. Regardless of transfer credit, the University and Division residency requirements must be satisfied.
