Electronic Intelligent Systems

University of California, Berkeley

About the Program

The Electronic Intelligent Systems minor offers the opportunity to gain breadth, as well as depth, in the areas of electronic intelligent systems that connect to the physical and social world. The minor includes sub-areas, such as robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, as well as electronic and electrical engineering. Students learn computer programming, as well as computer engineering. EIS minors achieve an understanding of conceptual foundations and emerging applications over a broad range of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science subjects.


Minor Requirements

General Guidelines

  1. ​All minors must be declared no later than one semester before a student's Expected Graduation Term (EGT). If the semester before the EGT is fall or spring, the deadline is the last day of RRR week. If the semester before the EGT is summer, the deadline is the final Friday of summer sessions. To declare the minor, contact the EECS department advisor for information on requirements and the declaration process.
  2. All courses taken to fulfill the minor requirements must be taken on a letter-graded basis.
  3. All upper division courses taken to fulfill the minor must be completed with an overall GPA of 2.0 or above.
  4. No more than one upper division course may be used simultaneously to fulfill requirements for a student’s major and minor programs.
  5. Completion of the minor program must not delay a student’s graduation. 
  6. EECS and L&S CS majors may not pursue an EIS minor.
  7. All students must complete the EIS Minor Completion Form by the tenth week of their final semester.
