Notes

  • ECE 324 (Electronics II) is an alternative prerequisite for ECE 415 (Senior Design Project I). Thus, if a BS-CSE major fails to pass ECE 353, and if they have passed ECE 323 (Electronics I), then they may take ECE 324 instead of ECE 354 in order to start SDP the following fall. (And ECE 324 can be used as one of four BS-CSE electives.)

  • Interested students who are still PR-ENGIN majors must fill out an Override Request Form (here) and take it to the Undergraduate Programs Office. (Location can be found under Advising Resources.)

  • A student who passes this course, but earns below C, is not required to retake the course, but may choose to retake the course to improve his/her cumulative GPA. Note that it is the LAST grade, NOT the best grade that counts. For more information, go to Course Retake Policy.
