Ph.D. students from other UW–Madison graduate programs who wish to earn a minor degree in ECE are required to complete a minimum of 9 credits of ECE courses numbered 400 or above, approved by the ECE department, with grades of B or better. In addition, at least three of these 9 credits must be earned in courses numbered 700 or above. At most, one course cross-listed with the student's major program may be counted toward the minor credits provided such a course is taught by ECE faculty. Moreover, such a course cannot be applied to satisfy the student's major requirements. No examinations are required other than those given in the courses.
