Best upper division Math for an EE major

So I just changed my major from Math to EE this semester and I really would like to continue taking some math. I have completed the entire Calc 1-3, LA, DEQ's, and a intro stats course. I only need 1 more course for a math minor. (intro proofs wont count for this though). My university doesn't allow double majors or more than one minor, but I can take a few extra math courses if I would like.

I am interested in Control Theory, Signals, and Information theory. Which courses should I prioritize? My uni has a small ABET EE program and a small math program, so most semesters EE courses will prevent me from taking math courses, hence I would like to prioritize.

Courses Offered:

1. Real Analysis I&II
2. Advance Probability and Stats/Bayesian I&II
3. Numerical Analysis I&II
4. Intro Proof (needed for Real Analysis)
5. Complex Analysis
6. PDE's
7. Advanced Linear Algebra (only offered this next fall)
I do plan to go to grad school in EE.

I agree on 3, 5, 7. Also, look into learning Fourier and Laplace transforms inside out, so find out what course (if any) covers those topics. Usually, an introductory control theory or communications theory class will cover enough, but transforms are crucial to studying signals and systems and it may not hurt to learn them as part of a "mathematical methods for engineers"-type course if available.

I forgot 6 also..... pde's usually have an intro to the Fourier transform.
