Optional areas of concentration have been defined to allow a student to develop a strength in a particular area of interest. Students satisfying the requirements of an area of concentration will have that fact noted on their transcripts.

  • Digital Systems
  • Electronics (Circuits and Devices)
  • Electric Power
  • Communications and Signal Processing
  • Degree distinctions earned by taking advanced courses that share a common theme
  • Concentrations are comprised of 3 advanced electives
  • No substitutions / exceptions
  • As new electives are created, concentrations offering will grow


Information on each area of concentration can be found below.
