Does this look like a fine degree?

So yeah I was gonna apply to this uni until I stumbled at their EE curriculum which is as follow:
I'm not very expert, but you know wish to know the expert opinion in this regard Calculus I Calculus II Calculus III Linear Algebra Differential Equations Numerical Methods Probability and Statistics for Engineers Introduction to Chemistry Mechanics and Waves for Engineers Electromagnetism and Optics for Engineers Programming for Engineers Engineering Economy and Cost Analysis Materials Science and Engineering Introduction to Electronics Foundations of Electrical Engineering Electric Circuits Digital Logic Systems Signals and Systems Communications Theory Microelectronics Computer Networks Control and Feedback System Design Computer Architecture Electrical Energy Conversion Applied Electromagnetic Electric Power Systems Digital Communications Electrical Engineering Capstone Project 5 × electives the plan during the 4 years study will be like: 1st semester: Programming for Engineers Introduction to Chemistry Calculus I Mechanics and Waves for Engineers 2nd semester: Materials Science and Engineering Calculus II Electromagnetism and Optics for Engineers 3rd semester: Foundations of Electrical Engineering Calculus III Linear Algebra Differential Equations 4th semester: Introduction to Electronics Electric Circuits Digital Logic Systems Numerical Methods Probability and Statistics 5th semester: Signals and Systems Computer Networks Computer Architecture Applied Electromagnetic 6th semester: Communications Theory Microelectronics Control and Feedback System Design Electrical Energy Conversion Engineering Economy and Cost Analysis 7th semester: Digital Communications Electric Power Systems EE Elective EE Elective and the 8th semester: Electrical Engineering Capstone Project EE Elective EE Elective EE Elective their electives are: Special Topics in Electrical Engineering Wireless Communications Digital Electronics Communication Electronics Nano electronics Digital Signal Processing Digital Image Processing Power Electronics Antennas and Wave Propagation Optical Fiber Communication Systems Opto electronics Microwave Engineering Renewable Energy Digital Control Modern Control Theory Unfortunately, I don't see a dedicated physics courses at all! And I hope there aren't any important missing subjects In general what do you think is the good, the bad, and the ugly in this course? Thanks!

This looks like a very standard engineering curriculum; the general physics is covered here:
. Mechanics and Waves for Engineers . Electromagnetism and Optics for Engineers This is equivalent to the first year of any general physics curriculum. Your engineering courses will then introduce any additional physics that is required as you go along. You will certainly learn about waves, and quantum mechanics will be mentioned in your solid state devices.

Thanks a lot for clearing some ideas for me.

Do they not make you take any communications or writing classes? Being able to write a wellreasoned persuasive argument is a good skill to have. At least as important as any single other class beyond the fundamentals.

They have English 1 & 2. and Technical Writing. These should cover the topics I guess. Thanks for the note.
BTW, I would really appreciate it if some could recommend some good community colleges which I could later on shift into a computer engineering program. Thanks

Michigan has a very well developed community college system. If you were to start at Washtenaw Community College you would be only 15 minutes from the University of Michigan's engineering campus.
The same would be true for most of the other engineering schools in Michigan, though Michigan State and Michigan Tech (among others) also have good programs ... if you like fishing, hunting, hiking, or winter sports  then pick Michigan Tech. Go Huskies!
