A student graduating with a bachelor's degree from CU Boulder may also receive a minor in computer engineering, though the minor is not available to students earning the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering or Electrical & Computer Engineering.
The minor in computer engineering provides training in computer engineering beyond the training usually received by science and mathematics majors. It can also broaden the training of students majoring in other engineering and applied science fields to provide more depth in computer engineering. The goal is to introduce students to the fundamentals of computer engineering and introduce them to a more advanced field. Such skills are important to students who expect to participate in real world situations that increasingly involve computer engineering solutions.
Students admitted to the computer engineering minor must have a cumulative GPA of 2.700 or better. The prerequisite for these courses is computing experience provided by ECEN 1310, CSCI 1300 or CSCI 1320.
Required Courses and Credits
This minor requires a minimum of 19 credit hours. A cumulative GPA of 2.250 or better is required for courses used to satisfy the requirements of this minor. Each individual course that is counted toward this minor must be passed with a grade of D- or better (note that a C- or better grade is required in all prerequisite courses).
