The requirement for the degree is 128 units. A cumulative grade point average of C (2.0) is required for all courses taken at USC as well as all upper-division courses applied toward the major, regardless of the department in which the courses are taken. See also the common requirements for undergraduate degrees section.
Students must fulfill a minimum requirement of 16 units of adviser-approved upper division elective courses in electrical engineering. Of these 16 units, 3-4 units must be selected from the following list of capstone design courses:
†Students may use EE 492a and EE 492b Undergraduate Project 2+2 units or EE 494a and EE 494b Undergraduate Thesis 2+2 units to satisfy the capstone design requirement.
Free Electives (15 units)
Free elective courses are used to complete the university minimum 128-unit requirement. Students are encouraged to investigate minor options when satisfying this requirement.
Total units: 128
*MATH 129 and MATH 229 is the preferred calculus sequence for electrical engineering students. Students advised to begin with MATH 125 as a prerequisite to MATH 129 have 4 fewer units of free electives in their programs.
