Double Major

Students pursuing a double major in electrical and computer engineering need to complete at least 164 credit hours to meet the requirements of both majors. Students can choose between the two capstone course sequences CPEG 475 and CPEG 480, or ELEG 475 and ELEG 480; however, the selected capstone project topic must be a cross of both majors. Six course electives (18 credit hours) and two lab electives (2 credit hours) must be selected in consultation with the academic advisor from 200-level or higher CPEG, ELEG, STEG, ENGR, and/or CSIS courses. The electives must be chosen according to the following rules: 

  1. At least two of the course electives must be CPEG courses.
  2. At least two of the course electives must be ELEG courses.
  3. A maximum of one CSIS course elective
  4. One of the lab electives must be a CPEG lab.
  5. One of the lab electives must be an ELEG lab.
  6. At least four of the course electives must be 300-level or higher courses.

The course electives are restricted to the following:

CPEG Electives:
CPEG 388, 389, 390, 422, 430, 441, 450, 455, 460, 470

Students joining the double major option after completing a Capstone Course Sequence might need to take a second Capstone Course Sequence depending on their capstone project topic. In the case where a second Capstone Course Sequence is mandated for the student by the Department, four course electives (12 credit hours) and two lab electives (2 credit hours) must be selected in consultation with the academic advisor from 200-level or higher CPEG and ELEG courses. The electives must be chosen according to the following rules and restricted to the lists provided above:

  1. Two of the course electives must be CPEG courses.
  2. Two of the course electives must be ELEG courses.
  3. One of the lab electives must be a CPEG lab.
  4. One of the lab electives must be an ELEG lab.
  5. At least two of the course electives must be 300-level or higher courses.

Applications from students required to finish less than 144 credit hours for their electrical/computer engineering degree (catalogs prior to AY 2014-15) to join the double major option or to have a second-degree (both AUK and non-AUK graduates) will be considered on a case-by-case basis and might be subject to additional requirements.

IMPORTANT:

Scholarship students may not seek a double major unless the required credits for the second major fall within their scholarship major’s (first major) limited credit hours, e.g., total of 124 (most programs) or 144 (CPEG/ELEG/STEG) required credit hours. Students are financially liable for any additional credit hours beyond those required for their first major.
