Undergraduate Catalog 2019-2020

Electrical Engineering (BS)

General Education Requirements  42 credits 
Major Requirements  103-106 credits 
Total Credits Required  133*

*21 credits required for the Major also satisfy general education requirements.

A math placement test is recommended for all students who have demonstrated CUNY proficiency.  Depending on placement results, some students may have to complete MTH 30, and/or MTH 35 and/or MTH 123, and/or MTH 130 prior to enrolling in MTH 230/229 or 231/229. The placement test is offered at scheduled times in the College Testing Office.


General Education Requirements

This program has a waiver to specify particular courses students must take in the areas of the General Education Requirements (Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning, Life and Physical Sciences, Scientific World and College Option). If students take different courses in these areas, they will be certified as having completed the requirements, but it may not be possible for them to finish their degree program within the regular number of credits.

Liberal Arts and Sciences Requirement

Of the 133 credits required for the BS in Electrical Engineering, at least 66 must be in liberal arts and sciences courses. Most courses designated ENS are non-liberal arts and sciences; those ENS courses that are cross-listed in mathematics (MTH) or physics (PHY) are liberal arts and sciences.
