1. There are three (3) specialization under the BSEE program, namely:
2. There are two (2) types of adviser: namely, registration adviser and academic/thesis adviser.
Registration adviser signs the student’s Form 5 and Form 26 during registration period. Also, the academic adviser is the one to consult regarding the Revitalized General Education Program (RGEP). New freshman students and shiftees will be given a registration adviser. If, for any reason the registration adviser resigns, the student should go to the department chairman’s office to ask for a new registration adviser.
Any of the faculty members can serve as adviser to any student. Consult any faculty member of the department related to the field of specialization. Then fill up three (3) copies of the “Plan of Course Work”. The deadlines for the submission of the “Plan of Course Work” are:
Before registration for the second semester of the second year – for those who will specialize in computer engineering (these students need to take the prerequisites of computer science courses).
First semester of the fourth year – for those who will specialize in power engineering or electronic engineering.
NOTE: Copies of the “Plan of Course Work” are available at the Department.
3. The “Plan of Course Work” for EACH specialization should include the following:
Elective courses (at least 6 units)
Specialization courses (at least 15 units)
4. Thesis or practicum is required. However, bright students are encouraged to conduct their theses. If a student wants to have BOTH thesis and practicum, the practicum becomes an extra course.
5. A student can take more than one specialization (double major) provided that he/she satisfies the 6 units of electives and 15 units of specialization courses for EACH specialization. This can be done by writing a letter addressed to the Vice Chancellor for Instruction with the Department Chair and College Secretary as recommending approval. However, warn is given that if application of double major is approved, the student will not be able to graduate if he/she does not pass all subjects indicated in plan of coursework.
6. A student will be allowed to have extra courses but these are last priorities. He/She will enroll them only when he/she is underloaded in a particular semester or if the subject to be enrolled is a prerequisite of a specialization/elective subject (as for the case of Computer Engineering major).
7. Students who want to take many extra courses are hereby warned that they must pass all of them to be able to graduate and that they do not exceed the maximum residence of 7 ½ years.
8. The board exam may include questions on Strength of Materials (ENSC 13), Fluid Mechanics (ENSC 16) and Materials of Engineering (ENSC 18). These are listed under electives.
