Advanced Undergraduate Subjects

SHARE:

Advanced Undergraduate Subjects (AUS's) build on the foundation and header subjects to provide an introduction to broadly-recognized areas of specialization in EECS. The AUS's provide an opportunity for integration of earlier learning and may include design- or project-oriented capstone experience. Undergraduate students are required to take two AUS's, and should choose these subjects based on their interest in the associated areas of specialization. The AUS's also provide a basis for more advanced subjects for students in the MEng program (where they can be used as part of the required concentration).

Subjects used to satisfy the AUS requirement may not also be used to satisfy other requirements, such as the Department lab requirement.

Please note that there may be additional special topics subjects that have been approved as AUS subjects for a particular term. See the SUBJECT UPDATES.
