The minor requirement in Pure Mathematics is automatically satisfied in both the Computer Engineering and the Electrical and Computer Engineering majors.

Mathematics 1314, Calculus I, MUST be taken during the fall semester of the freshman year in order to enroll in Physics 2414 in the spring semester. Otherwise, completion of the program may require more than eight semesters. Students who are not eligible to begin the calculus sequence should consider enrolling in Mathematics 1123 in the summer session.


It is recommended that students in the Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering satisfy the ITP requirement at the beginning of the first fall semester.

For more information, see the ECE Course Descriptions, Undergraduate Catalog , or contact us.

Also check out our suggested schedule which encompasses these requirements as well as general education requirements.
