my school is accredited by the ABET and the professors seem to be good enough despite I have not started classes yet :)

is Multi.Calculus the same of calculus III ? or what?

You will be fine. Just make sure you learn what you need to.

Multivariable calculus should be equivalent to what calculus 3 usually is.

Looks reasonable and is accredited, so I agree that you will be fine. Every school does things a little differently, so it is hard to tell too much from course names alone. By the way, where are all of your humanities courses? Is that what "gen ed" refers too? In any case, make sure you keep up with your work throughout the semester and make the most of the offices hours with professors and you will earn a good education.

That is pretty much identical to my universities curriculum, however it doesn't look like you do a partial differential equation course which can be quite handy.

thank god there are no humanities courses because I hate them.
but ,I do have Engineering ethics.

Don't be so quick to hate on humanities courses, nothing wrong with a well rounded mind.

Looks very different from my university curriculum. Your course look more mathematical than mine(which is good for you). There is no Instrumentation course though(which is considered very core for EE). Electromagnetism in 6th semester is too late. Should have been in 2nd or 3rd semester. But the curriculum looks good!

What a shame to hear you so down on humanities. I hope you will reconsider the richness in life that comes from studying history, literature, cultures and similar topics.

I realize the importance of humanities courses but I just prefer to keep dealing with Physics/Math topics.
I do have Engineering ethics in my curriculum.

I must say that I really learned how to write (or at least improved my writing) from history and english classes. I was an EE major and 25% of my courses (10 of 40) were humanities / social science. It is too bad your curriculum is so narrow. In any case, I wish you the best of luck.
