To view a sample 4 year degree plan, see Electrical Engineering Sample Degree Plan .

For a complete list of courses that meet Rockhurst Core Curriculum requirements, please go to The Core Curriculum

 

Students interested in majoring in electrical engineering should take the following courses in the following sequence. Although variations of the core classes are possible, it is recommended that students take all the asterisked (*) courses (required for the major) as suggested below. Students should always check with an advisor if they have questions about a proposed variation including taking any summer courses.

To fulfill the core requirements for a Rockhurst degree, students must fulfill at least one each of the ARI, HSI, and LTI core requirements.

A grade of C or better is required in all asterisked (*) courses (required for the major). Students are responsible for checking prerequisites for any course.

Transfer courses at the 3000- or 4000-level are only accepted with prior advisor approval.

A minimum of 60 hours of service is required. The recommended minimum number of service hours for each year are: 10 hours during the freshman year, 15 hours during sophomore and junior years, and 20 hours during senior year.
