B.S. Computer Engineering—B.S. CpE 131 credits

Audit year: Fall 2010

MTU’s bachelor of science degree in Computer Engineering (CpE) consists of 128 credits plus 3 units of co-curricular activities. DARS is the online Degree Audit Reporting System which shows degree requirements for your audit year, and how you are meeting those requirements. You can run DARS in Banweb. Your default degree audit year is the year you began at Michigan Tech and is designated as “Fall 2010” and coded as 201008. Requirements year of Fall 2011 is coded as 201108.
This guide explains degree requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Degree (BSCpE) at Michigan Tech. There may be differences in each year of requirements, which are coded in DARS.

The B.S.CpE degree at Michigan Tech is nationally accredited by ABET, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology education. It is important to understand that you cannot alter your degree requirements. Following the degree requirements ensures you meet requirements for the nationally accredited degree you intend.

The next pages detail each category of required credits for the B.S.CpE.

Engineering Design: 4-6 credits

Each computer engineering student must complete an approved engineering design experience.  You may complete your requirements in our year-long industry-sponsored “senior design” project or in our enterprise program for four semesters, or another approved design project.

EE4901(1cr)(fall)  and EE4910(3cr.) (spring)
    OR
MEEM4901(2) (fall or spring) and MEEM4911(2cr.) (spring or fall)
    OR
ENT3950(1) and ENT3960(1) and ENT4950(2) and ENT4960(2).
Taken your last four semesters on campus.
    OR
Another approved design project.  There is a European Project Semester through our Study Abroad program, which also meets our engineering design objectives.

EE4900(2) Design Fundamentals, is a required course designed to supplement the team project experience.  EE4900 was not required for enterprise students who began prior to fall 2010.

Pre-requisite courses:
CpE majors must complete EE3173 prior to starting EE4901, MEEM4901 or ENT4950.
