CpE and EE majors can study in Cergy, France, in Spring of junior year! Core 3rd-year courses are offered that can apply to your MTU degree. Apply for the France American Exchange Program (FAME) at the study abroad office in the Admin Building – room 200. Application deadline is October 15th.
Plan both Fall and Spring semesters for next year if you’d like the option to go to France next Spring. Are you ready to skip a Houghton Winter?
Students on track with the 4-year plan may be able to stay on the 4-year plan:
Sample EE flowchart 2014-15 (applies to students who began Fall 2014, but others will be similar)
Sample CpE flowchart 2014-15
Electronic Circuits; Lab —————————- EE3131 4 cr
Computer Arch. & Intro to Microprocessors EE3171 3 cr, EE’s only. Make up 1 cr with EE elective.
Algorithms & Design Analysis ——————— No CS credit; May sub for CS4321 on CpE degree.
Operating Systems ———————————- No CS credit; May use as technical elective on CpE degree.
Signals and Systems ——————————– EE3160 3 cr
Fundamentals of Power Engineering ——— EE4219 2 cr (2 credit EE elective or CpE tech elective)
Probability and Statistics ————————-MA4760 3 (EE’s may use in place of EE3180; CpEs may use for MA3710; CAUTION: may not be well prepared for our EE3250)
Communications Systems ———————— EE3250 3 cr
French language and Culture (beg,int,adv) —- 3 cr Awaiting evaluation – IPS/Gen Ed (HASS?)
- Save 3 credits of HASS-HU/FA (not 2nd year HUFA) for France
- EE’s consider EE3250 in France if you decide to take Probability and Statistics in France
- Take substitution for EE3901 the Fall of 3rd year. (ENG4300(smr) or (ENT3964(smr,fall) + ENT3958(fall)))
- Re-plan your junior year considering the courses you’d like to take in France.

Click the academic year you are/were in the sophomore/junior ECE courses to view your 2nd Spring Advising meetings (Sophomore and Beyond).
Beginning Fall 2016, EE3180 is the prerequisite course for EE3250, Communication Theory. Update your flowchart or print an updated flowchart from the EE Advising page.
Move EE3250 into a semester after you complete EE3180. Most flowcharts showed both EE3180 and EE3250 in semester six. Switch EE3250 with an elective from semester 7 or 8.
This ECE Concentrations .pdf document contains a one-page planning guide for each concentration.
- Biomedical Applications
- Environmental Applications
- Electric Power Engineering (begins Fall 2016)
1. Take CS1040, Assembly, if completing CS1141 by Spring 2016, but not CS3421. Details.
2. CpE’s using catalog year 201208 may substitute other math/sci credits for PH2400, such as MA3160, CH1150/51, or MA3202/3.
3. CpE majors using catalog years prior to 2013 must take one HASS elective from the “CpE HASS” list.
4. Valid course substitutions for CS3911, Numerical Methods. Applies to degree requirements prior to 2012.
If you took CS1141 or plan to take CS1141 in spring 2016, AND plan to take CS3421, Computer Organization next year (Fall 2016 or later),
then take CS1040, Assembly Programming, spring 2016.
If you complete(d) both CS1141 and CS3421 by spring 2016, you do not need CS1040.
If you take both courses next year, (after spring 2016) you do not need to take CS1040.
Beginning fall 2016, CS1141 becomes CS1142 and the prerequisite for CS3421. After completion of CS1122 or CS1131, you can take CS1142 and then CS3421 the following semester.
Beginning Fall 2016:
CS1142 , 3 credits, replaces CS1141 + 1 cr CS3421. The title is “Programming at the Hardware/Software Interface”.
CS3421 becomes 3 credits (was 4 cr.) The prerequisite is CS1142(was CS1122 or 1131).
BSEE Environmental Applications Concentration (2015 flowchart)
Choose two courses (6 credits minimum) from the Environmental Quality Engineering Electives list:
ENVE 4502 Wastewater Treatment Principles and Design Fall
