Requirements for the EE Major

(1) Completion of at least of 127 degree credits.

(2) Completion of at least 30 degree credits at UMD.

(3) Completion of at least 20 of the last 30 credits earned before graduation at UMD.

(4) Completion of the electrical engineering major. Admission to the upper division program is competitive and on a space-available basis. A minimum GPA of 2.0 in all work attempted at UMD, successful completion (with grades of A through D, or S) of 75 percent of all work attempted, and a minimum GPA of 2.0 overall (including transfer credits) are required for admission to the EE upper division program.

(5) Completion of UMD liberal education requirements. Liberal Education electives must include the following:

- Econ 1022 or Econ 1023
- Phil 3242
- At least one course from category Part I(b)
- At least one course from each of the following categories: Part II(b), II(c), II(d)
- At least one course emphasizing international perspective
- At least one course emphasizing cultural diversity

Note: Part I(b) - Oral Communication and Languages; Part II(b) - Social Sciences; Part II(c) - Humanities; Part II(d) - Fine Arts

(6) A minimum GPA of 2.00 in all courses taken in the major, including required supporting courses is required for graduation. This average applies to all courses in the major taken at UMD and calculated separately and also to all courses in the major when transfer credits are included.

(7) Acceptance to the upper division of EE by filing the Academic Progress Audit System (APAS) form with the department. Students who fail to file this form may not be permitted to register.

(8) Completion of the Electrical Engineering "Exit Survey", and a one-to-one exit interview with the EE Department Head.
