Degree Requirements 

Below are the most current versions of degree requirements for each of the programs we offer. Please note that these are sample pathways to graduation, each student's pathway is unique and yours may differ slightly from what you see below. 

Make sure you check the document for the year you started at UM-D, requirements can change from year to year. 

 

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.

Mechanical Engineering (ME)

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.
