Students Entering with B.S. Degrees in Other Fields

Students whose undergraduate degrees are in a field of science or engineering other than Electrical and Computer Engineering may pursue graduate degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, but they are responsible for acquiring the undergraduate material that forms the prerequisites for the specific graduate courses in their plans of study.
