Students in this concentration may need to obtain a prerequisite override from the appropriate department to enroll in this course.


Select two courses from the list of courses in category 3A in the AUCC. One course must include a lab. Courses must be selected from two different subject codes.


Select a total of 12 credits from (A) and (B), with 6 or more coming from (A):

  1. upper-division mathematics courses except those ending in –80 to –99;
  2. upper-division ECE, CS, MATH, or STAT courses, except those ending in –80 to –99.

The Major Completion Map for this concentration will be published in the 17-18 General Catalog. Students should consult with their Advisor or visit the Department for the current Major Completion Map requirements.
