Minimum grade of C required.


Two of three lab sciences MUST be a sequence.


If CS 4460 is successfully completed, one of the Media Technologies is fulfilled, one of the Human-Centered Technology is fulfilled, and an additional 3 credit hour Thread Elective is required. Thread Electives can be chosen from the following courses: CS 2110, CS 2261, CS 3240, CS 3510, CS 3790, CS 4455, CS 4464, CS 4470, CS 4472, CS 4475, CS 4480, CS 4496, CS 4550, CS 4590, CS 4605, CS 4660, CS 4665, CS 4670, CS 4690, CS 4770, CS 4745, CS 4793, PSYC 2020, PSYC 2210, PSYC 2760, PSYC 3012, PSYC 3040, PSYC 4090, PSYC 4260 or CX 4236.


Junior Design Options are as follows (students must pick one option and may not change):

Six credits of the Junior Design option are used as Major Requirements and the overage credits of research/VIP (5 credit hours/2 credit hours) may be used as free electives. Students completing VIP for their junior design requirement will be required to complete at least three semesters of VIP.  (VIP 1  + VIP 2 + VIP 3) (for a total of 5 credit hours) + LMC 3403 = 8 hours of VIP credit. 

Students using CREATE-X for junior design take at least 6 hours of CREATE-X Start-ip Lab and Idea 2 Prototype (I2P) and 3 of the 6 hours must be I2P.  Students take these 6 hours with LMC 3403 (3 hours) for a total of 9 hours.  Extra three hours for CREATE-X option can be used in free electives.


Two credit hours of MATH 1554 may count along with MATH 2550 to give Field of Study 18 credit hours.
