  • Call 487-2550 for Advising appointments.
  • Complete your Graduation Application(s) 1 semester before your last.

Registration- Senior Design or ENT4950

Posted by Judy Donahue under Enterprise Information, Registration, Senior Design Requirements

To schedule Design Project 1 in Fall, EE4901, register for section 0A and section L01.  Your section will be adjusted to match your team in 2nd week of classes, after teams are formed.

To schedule ENT4950, you’ll need the ENT4950 permission to enroll formInstructions.

To schedule MEEM4901, contact Ryan or Danise in MEEM204/205 or ratowles@mtu.edu or dnjarvey@mtu.edu.

Prereqs must be complete to register: EE3901, EE3131, and ready for EE3171 or EE3173 if not yet complete.

2014 Spring Advising Meetings

Posted by Judy Donahue under Advice for Success, New First-year Students, New Transfer Students, Registration, video

Have your flowchart handy.  Be ready to take notes and plan for registration of your fall classes.  Write down your questions. Turn your speakers on. May need to adjust volume. Many advising topics covered.

Approximately 23 minutes, in lieu of coming out on a COLD February night to a cold classroom for an hour.

Audio: Have your speakers on;    Software: Windows Media Viewer

Engineering Design Pre-requisites

Posted by Judy Donahue under CpE, EE, Senior Design Requirements

CpE’s:  EE3901 and EE3131; EE3173 is taken before or with EE4901 or ENT4950.

EE’s:  EE3901 and EE3131;  EE3171 is taken before or with EE4901 or ENT4950.

Engineering Design requirements may be completed with a one-year “senior design” project in EE4901-4910, MEEM4901-4911 or in Enterprise project work using ENT3950, ENT3960, ENT4950, and ENT4960.

EE3901 – Design Fundamentals, is required for all ECE students following Fall 2010 and later degree requirements. (was EE4900)

Take EE3901 in spring of junior year.
If you plan to start a year-long project or ENT4950 in a spring semester and end in fall, take EE3901 in the spring, one year prior to starting MEEM4901 or ENT4950. (3 semesters remaining)

Plan two semesters remaining after completion of prerequisiste courses to complete engineering design (also called ‘senior design’) .

Enterprise students who have completed ENT3950 and ENT3960, but are not ready to take ENT4950 may enroll in ENT3980 if you want to stay in your enterprise while you’re completing your design prerequisites. ENT3980 does not apply to your Engineering Design Requirements.

  • Not offered spring 2014:  EE4290, EE5522.
  • Plan ahead for “EE Elective” courses you’d like

CS course changes: CS1141, CS3421

Posted by Judy Donahue under CpE, CpE Announcements

Effectve for Fall 2015: How does this affect Computer Engineers(and EE’s who are taking CS courses)? - Update your flowchart as needed: Be aware of when you plan to take EE3173 H/S Integration.

1.  If you’ve already taken CS1141 (2) and CS3421(4), you are not affected and can ignore this.

2.  If you’ve taken CS1141(2) but not CS3421 (4), TAKE CS3421 by Spring 2015, at the latest.

3. If you’ve taken CS3421 (4), but not CS1141 (2), TAKE CS1141 in SPRING 2015, at the latest.

4. If you’ve taken neither CS1141 nor CS3421,  take and complete both courses by spring 2015
OR take them both in academic year 2015-2016. CS1141 becomes prereq for CS3421: Plan accordingly.

CS course changes for next year, effective Fall 2015:

1.  CS3421 (4), Computer Organization, becomes 3 credits instead of 4.  1 credit of material is being removed, and added to CS1141, last known as “C for java Programmers”. CS1141 becomes a prereq for CS3421. This change could affect graduation date. Plan accordingly.

2.  CS1141 (2) becomes 3 credits instead of 2.  1 credit of material is being added from CS3421, Computer Organization. Take CS1141 BEFORE CS3421.

3. The title of CS1141 is changing from “C for java Programmers”, to “Programming at the H/S Interface“.

ENG1102 for CpE’s 2013-2014

Posted by Judy Donahue under CpE, CpE Announcements

Fall 2013 – Spring 2014  Computer engineering new freshmen and transfer students (students using catalog year 2013-2014):

ENG1102 is not required for 2013-14 computer engineers.  ENG1101 students may take it in spring if they wish, and ENG1001 students may take it in Fall 2014 if you wish.

Should you take ENG1102 if it’s not required?

1) If you are certain you’ll stay in computer engineering or a CS or non-engineering major, you will not need ENG1102.

2) If you’d like the option of changing your major to another engineering major in the future, take ENG1102.

3) If you are considering another engineering major,  or a double major with EE, or a 2nd degree with BE,ME, etc.. take ENG1102.

ENG1102 will count as a technical elective for CpE’s if you take it in the semester following ENG1101 or ENG1100.

Transfer students who came here with 30 or more transfer credits have the option of taking ENG1101 or substituting CpE elective credit for it.

CpE Announcements & Reminders

Posted by Judy Donahue under CpE Announcements

1.  CS1141 and CS3421: Take both courses in same academic year.

2. CpE majors using catalog years prior to 2013 must take one  HASS elective from the “CpE HASS” list.

3. Valid course substitutions for CS3911, Numerical Methods. Degree requirements prior to 2012.
