Some members expressed concern regarding the COE designator and suggested that the School reconsider using ECE. A motion was made to approve the new course with the designator to be determined. The motion was seconded and approved.
NOTE: The Committee took no action concerning this proposal since the option would involve no actual changes to the undergraduate degree, only careful allocation of student electives. Several graduate courses will count for undergraduate credit and satisfy as electives.
