There are several prerequisiste changes effective Fall 2015 (marked as additions and deletions). For ECE 4961 there will be a transition period of one year during which the stricter prerequisites will be waived.

The following table lists ECE undergraduate courses along with the tentative schedule; graduate courses are listed elsewhere. The course title is a link to the course syllabus which contains additional information about the course. The Department will try to offer the courses as per this schedule, however due to lack of availability of faculty or funds in a semester some courses may not be offered. Courses experiencing low enrollment may be canceled.

Course change history and proposed changes are on other web pages.

Course management is performed by course coordinators and focus area groups which are listed on another page.

Two transitions have been completed: course transition information is located on the substitutions page and course syllabi format change information is available via the course change history page.
