Electrical and Computer Engineering

This page contains information about substitutions within Tennessee Tech. For information about transfer credit and courses taken elsewhere see the transfer students and transfer credit page. It also lists interim prerequisites for a (now completed) course transition.

The course substitutions listed on this page have been approved by the ECE Faculty.

General Substitutions

General Education Courses: See the General Education page for information about course substitutions, RODP courses, and transfer of GenEd course credit.

ENGR 1020: UNIV 1020, a UNIV 1020 equivalent course, or HON 1010 will substitute for ENGR 1020. (Transfer students: many substitutions are possible; contact the ECE transfer student advisor for details. Note: this substitution is relevant only for certain curricula prior to 2011.)

Substitutions Related to Course and Curriculum Changes

Note: Double arrow (⇔) indicates substitution either way. Single arrow (→) indicates one-way substitution, that is A→B means A substitutes for B, for example if you take course A it will substitute for course B in the curriculum.

Newer Substitutions

All (EE and CmpE):

  • ECE 2000 ⇔ ECE 2001 + ECE 2011
  • ECE 2060 ⇔ ECE 3060
  • ECE 3910 ⇔ MATH 3470
  • ISE 3920 + ECE 4960 + ECE 4970 ⇔ ECE 4910 + ECE 4961 + ECE 4971
  • MATH 2010 (2 hours) + MATH 2011 (1 hour) [Spring 2012 and before] ⇔ MATH 2010 (3 hours) [after Spring 2012]

EE Only:

  • (none)

CmpE Only:

  • Note: In the CmpE Fall 2009 curriculum CEE 2100 is neither required nor allowed as an elective
  • CSC 4200 → CSC 3402

Older Substitutions

The following are older substitutions which are unlikely to be used but are still in effect.

All (EE and CmpE):

  • ECE 4990-001 (Fall 2010 only) → either ECE 3520 or ECE 4510
  • ECE 4960 + ECE 4970 → ECE 4910 + ECE 4941 + ECE 4942
  • ECE 2110 ⇔ ECE 3110
  • CEE 2110, ISE 3100, or ME 3210 → CEE 2100

EE Only:

  • ENGR 1120 + ENGR 2121 ⇔ CSC 2100
  • CSC 2010 + CSC 2011 → CSC 2100 (note: one extra hour)
  • CSC 2010 + CSC 2011 → ENGR 1120 + ENGR 2121 (note: one extra hour)

CmpE Only:

  • CSC 2010 + CSC 2011 + CSC 2020 + CSC 2021 + CSC 2300 ⇔ CSC 2100 + CSC 2110 + CSC 2111 + CSC 2120 + CSC 2121

Interim Prerequisites and Transitional Course Scheduling

The following are interim prerequisites and course schedules for the transition from the ECE 2000/2060/Old-Capstone courses to the ECE 2001/2011/3060/New-Capstone courses. These are only for prerequisite permit purposes. These are not course substitutions.

Interim Prerequisites

To accommodate transitions between old and new courses the ECE Department office will issue "prerequisite permits" for registering via Eagle Online as follows. Contact the ECE office to obtain a permit.

ECE 2010, 2020:
ECE 2000 will substitute for ECE 2001, ECE 2011 and/or MATH 2010 as prerequisites. (Note: this is only for prerequisite purposes, it does not substitute for MATH 2010 in the curriculum.)

ECE 3010, 3020:
ECE 2000 will substitute for ECE 2001 as a prerequisite.

ECE 3060:
ECE 2000 will substitute for ECE 2011 as a prerequisite.

ECE 3160:
ECE 2060 will substitute for ECE 2011 as a prerequisite.

ECE 3260, 3270, 3360, 3560, 3660, 3760, 4961:
ECE 2060 will substitute for ECE 3060 as a prerequisite.

Transitional Course Scheduling

The transition has been completed. (Transitional semesters were Fall 2011, Spring 2012, Summer 2012, and Fall 2012.)
