Embedded Systems Minor

Embedded Systems Minor

The embedded systems minor is primarily intended to complement computer science or engineering curriculum for students interested in the low-level hardware and software implementation of these systems.  The minor is not available to Electrical and Computer Engineering majors. 


Minor Admissions: 

Admission to the Embedded Systems minor is a two-phase process. Students must complete the courses listed below in order to apply to the minor. Admission to minor status is determined by academic performance in these course and other factors. Admission to the minor is competitive. Neither completion of the prerequisites nor attainment of any specific GPA guarantees admission. The Embedded Systems minor is not available to Electrical Engineering majors. Admission is available ONLY if there is space in the program. 

Minor Prerequisite courses: 

MATH 124, MATH 125, PHYS 161, PHYS 162, and CSCI 140 or CSCI 141. Students must obtain at least a C- in the above courses and an overall GPA in them of 2.0 or higher to be considered. AP scores are converted to GPA as follows: 5 = A; 4 = B; 3 = C. Decisions are based primarily on cumulative GPA in the prerequisite courses, but successful completion of other required Minor courses, GPA in a Major, and overall GPA are also considerations.

Submit the completed application to ENGD@wwu.edu.   All applicants will be notified by email of the status of their application. 

Applications may be submitted at any time.  Admission is based on space availability in the program as well as other factors listed in the requirements.
