Electrical Engineering Course Requirements


The field or segment of engineering which deals with the study and the application of electricity, electromagnetism and electrons is referred to as electrical engineering. Electrical engineering is applicable in a number of fields and includes a number of topics like power (supply, generation and distribution), control systems, signal processing and telecommunications to name a few.

The science of electrical engineering deals with varied small scale and large scale issues pertaining to electrical systems. There are a few divisions or specialisations within the field of electrical engineering itself. But these divisions come only on high levels and depend on the subject options chosen by the respective individual.

Given below are a few requirements which must be met by anyone who wishes to enter the stream of electrical engineering. Also given below is a list of subjects which are a part of the electrical engineering curriculum.

Requirements to enter the field of chemical engineering:

  • The individual must produce his or her high school transcripts while meeting the overall as well as particular subject percentage requirements.
  • The individual must qualify the entrance exam, if the respective institution requires the students to pass such an entrance level exam.
  • There may be a few other selection criterions like an interview etc which differ from institution to institution.

Requirements to obtain chemical engineering course certificate/degree:

A student who has taken up chemical engineering as his/her stream of engineering must pass the following core subjects in order to attain the degree or certificate of graduation:

  • General Chemistry
  • Computing for Engineers
  • Calculus I
  • Calculus II, III
  • Differential Equations
  • Introductory Physics I
