Degree Requirements 

Navigating degree requirements is easy with the right tools! Curriculum Plans and the Degree Works audit tool are just a few useful resources available to help guide students through our academic programs. Please note Degree Works is a planning tool, not an academic transcript or official notice that you have completed degree requirements. Freshmen students admitted Fall 2015 and after and Transfer students admitted Fall 2017 and after, must follow the Dearborn Discovery Core (DDC) requirements.

Disclaimer: The curriculum plans provided are suggested four-year schedules of courses based on degree requirements for each major. These sample schedules serve as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term.  Your schedule may not look exactly like these plans.  These plans are not a substitute for academic advising—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements.

*Students who are following older catalog year requirements (Fall 2015 & before) may stop by the Office of Advising and Academic Success, 2000 HPEC, for a copy of their requirements.

Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE)

Electrical engineering deals with the controlled application of electricity to the solution of real problems. This includes such things as motors, transistors, integrated circuits, and lasers as well as larger physical systems for which these are components: electrical power generating and distribution systems, communication networks, and computers. It is also concerned with the flow of electricity in the human body and with the transmission of signals between planets.

The mechanical engineering field is one of the oldest of the several engineering fields. It is also one of the broadest in scope, for it is not identified with nor restricted to any particular technology (like nuclear engineering), nor to any particular vehicle (like land-based automobiles), nor to any particular device or particular system.
