Course Sequence

Download Plan of Study worksheet 

Each program has a course sequence or a proper order in which to take classes. It is important that students take their classes following the course sequences provided by the department because foundational or prerequisite classes contain information that utilized in the upper level courses.

Since our students are coming from many different community colleges and technical backgrounds they transfer to Wayne State with varying amounts of credits. It is difficult to prescribe a semester-by-semester plan that would fit each individual student's situation, so instead priority lists are used.

Each list contains a group of classes that are required to be completed before registering for classes in the subsequent lists. This helps students progress through the program, while building on their foundational skills.

Priority order for Bachelors of Science in Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology:

Priority level 1: Priority level 2: Priority level 3: Terminal courses:
MAT 1800 MAT 3430* MAT 3450* ET 5870 (Available after level 2)
PHYS 2130+1 CHM 1020 EET 3150 EET 3180 (Available after level 3)
ET 2160 or CSC 1050 PHY 2140+1 EET 3300 EET 3500 (Available after level 3)
EET 2000 ET 3850   EET 4200 (Available after level 3)
EET 2100 ET 3870   EET ELECTIVES (Availability varies)
EET 2720 EET 3100   ET 4999 (Available last semester)
All Lower Division Tech (=21) EET 3720    

* Students may feel free to take MAT 3430 and 3450 before completing previous levels


  • Students who are found to be "out of order" can be administratively withdrawn from their classes. It is also very important that students get a C- or better in a class that is listed as a prerequisite to another class.
  • Maximum 64 semester credits can be transferred from Community Colleges.
  • Transfer credits are subject to WSU Transfer Student Statute and may be revised.
  • Minimum 30 credits must be earned from WSU including 24 credits from Div. of Engineering Technology
  • WSU General Education Requirement includes: (a) Foundational Competencies for BC, IC, OC, and  (b) Inquiries in QR, CI, CIV, SI, NSI, DEI, GL

Web Sites for Course Equivalency:

All courses required are not on these priority lists. General education and communication courses are omitted from the above list. Students can use the general education and communication classes to help "fill in" or "balance" their schedules, but these are outside of the technical/program of study area. A student should first try to schedule classes on at the priority level they are at, and then opt to take general education classes.
