EE and CmpE Minors

Beginning Fall 2019, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science will introduce two new minors for Vanderbilt University undergraduates.

Minor in Electrical Engineering

The minor in electrical engineering is available to all students except those majoring or minoring in computer engineering.  The electrical engineering minor requires a minimum of 16 hours of EECS courses, including the completion of all laboratory corequisites for courses selected for the minor, distributed as follows:

1. Programming: CS 1101 or 11043 hours
2. Digital Systems: EECE 2123/2123L**4 hours
3. Circuits: EECE 21123 hours
4. One of EECE 2213/2213L, 3214, 3233, or 3235/3235L3-4 hours
5. At least 3 hours of EECE courses numbered 2000 or above (excluding EECE 3860/3861)3 hours
Total: 16-17 hours

Minor in Computer Engineering

The minor in computer engineering is available to all students except those majoring or minoring in electrical engineering or computer science.  The computer engineering minor requires a minimum of 17 hours of EECS courses, including the completion of all laboratory corequisites for courses selected for the minor, distributed as follows:

1. Programming: CS 1101 or 11043 hours
2. Digital Systems: EECE 2123/2123L**4 hours
3. Microcontrollers: EECE 2218/2218L4 hours
4. One of EECE 2112, CS 2201, or CS 22043 hours
5. At least 3 hours of EECE or CS courses numbered 2000 or above (excluding EECE 3860/3861 or CS 3860/3861)3 hours
Total: 17 hours

** With department approval, students who are taking or have already completed EECE 2116/2116L as of Spring 2019 may substitute them in place of EECE 2123/2123L to fulfill minor requirements.  Beginning Fall 2019, EECE 2123/2123L must be taken for either minor.
