Coursework Form

Students are required to submit a coursework form early on in the program to aid their program planning and to ensure that they fully understand the MS ECE degree requirements. There is a certain degree of flexibility in completing the coursework form. Some sample course completion forms are given below; a and b versions correspond to the same set of courses, but different ways of grouping them.

Example 1a, Example 1b, Example 2a, Example 2b, Example 3a, Example 3b
See the ECE Graduate Handbook for detailed instructions.

Courses – TIA classifications; note that some courses are cross-listed under different TIAs. ECE 6500 can be used as a DSP TIA or Modern Optics TIA or Systems & Controls TIA course. Enter the course grades that are already known.
