Students are required to participate in the Professional Learning Institute (PLI) program as a requirement for graduation. The program consists of eleven PLI workshops distributed by focus areas as follows: Global and Cultural Diversity (2 workshops), Innovation (2 workshops), Leadership (2 workshops), Civic and Public Engagement (2 workshops), and Ethics (3 workshops). Each workshop is between 1-2 hours long and no outside preparation is required to attend any of the workshops. Attendance at the required workshops may be spread over the student’s five-year program.

Select 9 credits from courses from the Electrical Engineering, Lasers and Optics Concentration, Technical Elective list.

A total of 3 credits of Independent Study may apply toward degree requirements. This includes credit awarded for  ECE 495A, ECE 495B, ECE 495C combined.

Distinctive Requirements for Degree Program:

TO DECLARE MAJOR: Engineering is a controlled major:  students are admitted into the major only if they meet established academic standards.  Please see competitive major requirements or the advisor in the Department for more information.

TO PREPARE FOR FIRST SEMESTER:   The curriculum for this major assumes students enter college prepared to take calculus and chemistry.  To qualify for graduation, students in the biomedical engineering combined with electrical engineering program (with concentration in lasers and optics) must achieve a minimum 2.000 grade point average at Colorado State in all courses in engineering, mathematics, computer science, statistics, physics, and chemistry as well as courses taken as technical electives.  Students are required to participate in the Professional Learning Institute (PLI) program as a requirement for graduation. The program consists of eleven PLI workshops distributed by focus areas as follows: Global and Cultural Diversity (2 workshops), Innovation (2 workshops), Leadership (2 workshops), Civic and Public Engagement (2 workshops), and Ethics (3 workshops). Each workshop is between 1-2 hours long and no outside preparation is required to attend any of the workshops. Attendance at the required workshops may be spread over the student’s five-year program.
