Purpose: The curriculum is designed to permit the student to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program in electrical engineering (EE). All B.S.E.E. degree-granting colleges/universities require specific preparation in the sophomore year for EE majors.
Transfer Information: Students are advised to work closely with the faculty and counseling staff for program and course scheduling. Electives should be chosen carefully to meet requirements of the transfer institution. The responsibility for proper course selection rests with the student.
Recommended Preparation: High school courses: 4 units of English, 2 units of algebra, 1 unit of geometry, 1 unit of trigonometry, and 1 unit of laboratory science (chemistry or physics).
Completion Requirements: Grades of “C” and above are required in courses intended to be transferred for credit to a baccalaureate degree-granting college/university.
1 May substitute CSC 201 for transfer to Electrical Engineering Schools that do not require chemistry.
2 Although students who have graduated with a transfer-oriented A.A., A.S., or A.A. & S. degree or any baccalaureate or higher degree from a regionally accredited United States institution of higher education will have most of their general education considered as fulfilled, they must meet the math and science requirements specified for this program. Exceptions must be approved by the division dean responsible for the student's curriculum.
3 May substitute the SDV 101 Orientation section related to this program
4 May substitute CSC 201 for transfer to institutions that do not require a computer programing course and require chemistry. Per note 1, may substitute CSC 202.
5 May substitute ENG 125 with the advice of a counselor or academic advisor according to the requirements of the transfer institution.
6 May be selected from the following: CST 100, CST 110, CST 115, CST 126, CST 227, or CST 229.
7 May substitute EGR 265.
8 See social/behavioral science courses listed under general education electives.
9 See humanities/fine arts courses listed under general education electives. Electives should be selected with advice of a counselor or academic advisor to meet requirements of the transfer institution.
The following courses are not required for the Electrical Engineering Specialization; however, completion of them may be desirable for transfer as a junior in engineering. Consult the requirements of the transfer institution.
