A student graduating with a bachelor's degree from CU Boulder may also receive a minor in electrical engineering, though the minor is not available to students earning a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering or Electrical & Computer Engineering.
The minor in electrical engineering provides training in electrical engineering beyond the training usually received by science, mathematics and applied mathematics majors. It can also broaden the training of students majoring in other engineering fields to provide more depth in electrical engineering. The goal is to teach students the fundamentals of electrical engineering and introduce them to at least one of its many advanced application areas. Such skills are important to students who expect to participate in real world situations that increasingly involve electrical engineering applications.
Prerequisites for the electrical engineering minor are two semesters of calculus and differential equations with linear algebra. A grade of C- or better is required in all prerequisite courses.
Students admitted to the electrical engineering minor must have a cumulative GPA of 2.700 or better. Students must still meet all prerequisites for the courses they choose.
