The total credit hours requirement for the degree has been decided at 153 plus such courses as may be prescribed on the basis of review of individual backgrounds.
- ENG 101 is a remedial course and those having proficiency in beginning English can have exemptions on the basis of earlier accomplishment on record and demonstration of competency through examination
- MAT 167 requires a basic mathematics competency and those who cannot meet its requirements will be required to undergo one or more course(s) in mathematics such as MAT 107– Mathematics and/or MAT 147- Applied Calculus
- CSC 103 and CSC 104 courses are introductory in nature and can be exempted on the basis of earlier accomplishment on record and demonstration of competency through examination
- PHY 109 and PHY 110 are the beginning Physics courses and may qualify for exemption on the basis of earlier accomplishment on record and demonstration of competency through examination
- CHM 115 and CHM 116 are the beginning Chemistry courses and may qualify for exemption on the basis of earlier accomplishment on record and demonstration of competency through examination
- BSEEE students will have to complete any two courses among PHI 114, PSY 105 or ENV 201
Course Customization for Students with Polytechnic Diploma in Electrical Engineering
- Students with polytechnic diploma in electrical engineering may have course waiver for 20 credit hours based on earlier accomplishment on record and through a standard test and viva. The courses that qualified for waiver are 1. ENG 101 Basic English Composition , 2. MAT 107 Mathematics , 3. PHY 109 General Physics , 4. PHY 110 Physics Lab , 5. CHM 115 General Chemistry , 6. CHM 116 Chemistry Lab , 7. CSC 103 Fundamentals of Computer and Applications , and 8. CSC 104 Computer Applications Lab . Such waived courses will be treated as “EXEMPTED COURES” in the final Transcript.
- Such diploma holders may also have class waiver for twelve credit hours involving 1. EEN 183 Circuit Analysis I , 2. EEN 184 Circuit Analysis I Lab , 3. EEN 265 Electronic Analysis and Designs I , 4. EEN 266 Electronics I Lab , 5. MEC 120 Mechanical Engineering and Drawing I  and 6. MAT 147 Applied Calculus . Registration in these courses and appearing in all examinations are required but the students may have the option of not attending the classes. All these courses will be treated as “REGULAR COURES” with grades obtained recorded in the final Transcript.
In the light of the above, entry level qualification and background of an applicant as well as his/her competence, the course requirements for the concerned student in the BSEEE program will be customized.
