The goals of the three Bachelor of Science programs, computer engineering, computer science, and electrical engineering, are to prepare students for entry into the profession; to instill in students the capabilities required by the discipline, the recognition of the need to enhance the discipline, and the desire for life-long learning; and to equip students with a general knowledge of technical and non-technical disciplines so that they are prepared for further study in other fields including professional and graduate education.
The University of Tennessee Undergraduate Catalog is the official source of the department’s academic programs, courses, policies, and procedures.
The Showcase Curriculum shows courses arranged in a way which a student, by carrying a course load sometimes as high as 18 hours per semester can graduate in four years (eight semesters).
Such an achievement requires dedication and full-time serious effort and many students take less than a full load for a variety of reasons. The arrangement of courses shown in the Showcase Curriculum has been carefully thought out to provide the most effective learning experience for the student.
You would be well advised to follow this sequence as closely as circumstances permit. At the very least you should observe all prerequisite and co-requisite requirements. Significant deviations from the Showcase Curriculum should be completely discussed well in advance with your adviser.
