2012-2014, 2014-2016, 2016-2018 catalogs use "Technical Cores". Students pick a primary and secondary tech core.
2018-2020 catalogs use "Technical Components". Students only pick ONE primary tech component. They don't have a "secondary", instead they have Free Electives (also known as Academic Enrichment).
TECHNICAL CORES / COMPONENTS
Electrical Engineering Cores / Components
Computer Engineering Technical Cores / Components
Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems
Data Science and Information Processing*
Software Engineering and Design
*Students wishing to combine Data Science and Software Engineering will need to select Academic Enrichment as their secondary core and count the secondary core's courses toward Academic Enrichment coursework.

STEPS TO DECLARING TECHNICAL CORES / COMPONENTS
You will receive a Secure Academic Note (SAN) confirming your technical core/component selections and assigning you a Faculty Mentor. You have the option to change your Faculty Mentor at any time -you can do so via the Qualtrics form.
You are given the option to change your technical cores until your last semester of enrollment. If you decide to change your selections, please resubmit the correct Technical Selections Form (it depends on your catalog) and redo the steps on this page. Please think carefully before making changes to technical cores and see an advisor if you have any questions.
Data Science and Information Processing Form (If you have selected Data Science as your PRIMARY technical core, complete this form with your Faculty Mentor and return it to the ECE Undergraduate Advising Office).
