The electrical engineering minor provides a solid foundation in the core areas of electronic circuits and signals and systems, as well as the prerequisite material in mathematics and physics. Concentration of upper-division electives in either of the major tracks constitutes substantial and focused work in the discipline of electrical engineering. This minor is particularly suitable for students with majors in applied physics or any School of Engineering major.

Requirements for the minor in Electrical Engineering are the following:

MATH19A | Calculus for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics | 5 |

MATH19B | Calculus for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics | 5 |

MATH23A | Vector Calculus | 5 |

AM30 | Multivariate Calculus for Engineers | 5 |

Either these courses | ||

AM10 | Mathematical Methods for Engineers I | 5 |
