PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING DEGREE PROGRAM IN THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING SECTION in the Undergraduate Catalog 2014-2016

NAME OF CHANGE:
  Academic Change

IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IS YES, THE COLLEGE MUST CONSULT NEAL ARMSTRONG WHO WILL DETERMINE WHETHER SACS-COC APPROVAL IS NEEDED.:

• Is this a new degree program? No
• Does the program offer courses that will be taught off campus? No
• Will courses in this program be delivered electronically? No

EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM:

        No changes to the degree program. All changes are minor editing for clarification, corrections to course numbers to reflect recent changes, and corrections to the description of computing equipment needed for coursework. All editing changes made are attached to this document.

  1. M 408K, L, M is equivalent in all ways to M 408C, D. This codifies a standard substitution that we always accept, and is especially useful for transfer students and students with AP credit.
  2. EE 364E and 464S represent an alternate acceptable pathway for the Senior Design Sequence course requirements -- EE 364D and 464K, R.... These are entrepreneurship courses especially established for that purpose.
  3. The "14 hour ..." description under the Academic Enrichment secondary core clarifies the language of the requirements. It does not change them, since that is what has been required of those students: we sometimes accept one lower division science course in departments very different from the ECE curriculum. The new language allows that.
  4. The new course number for Solar Energy Conversion is EE 339S. It has been previously submitted to the Course Inventory System, and will be routinely listed by the time this catalog goes into effect. We will continue to accept the previous course number for students who have taken the 379K course version.

SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
