Minor in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Undergraduate students of the university who are not majoring in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) have the option to take a Minor in EEE. A Minor in EEE will make a student advantageous in the following ways: (a) Acquiring the academic background for higher studies in Electrical; (b) EEE being the oldest branch of engineering and every day to day applications involves electrical and electronics engineering, minor in EEE will make the student a perfect fit in career prospects that involves electricity or electronics

Minor Eligibilty 

The first opportunity to officially register for the Minor in Electrical and Electronics Engineering is at the end of your 1st year with the Dean-undergraduate office. However, you can start crediting courses that would count towards the Minor even before you officially register for it.

The number of seats for minor in EEE is limited and subject to availability and academic performance. The minimum cut off CGPA to apply for minor in EEE is 7*.

To acquire a Minor in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, you have to acquire a minimum of 18 credits as University Wide Electives (UWE) from the courses offered by the Department of Electrical Engineering. These credits must satisfy the following minimum requirements: Electrical engineering department offers two bucket of courses to acquire minor in Electrical and electronics engineering and electronics and communicaiton engineering. 

 

 

* CGPA cut off is subject to change based on the demand and competition.

Below are the bucket of courses to be taken by students belonging to non computer science Engineering students.
