Courses

EES students are always allowed to register for any EES course, provided they meet the course prerequisites. However, faculty and students have selected which courses are most relevant to students in each program track. These lists will typically be created at the beginning of registration based on the schedule for the following semester, but may not be current if there have been late changes. If there is any question as to whether and when a course is being offered, please consult Banner.
