The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering provides the student with the opportunity to acquire a broad background in circuit theory, communication systems, computers, control systems, electromagnetic fields, energy sources and systems, and electronic devices. The student also gains specialization in avionics appropriate for entry-level engineering positions in the aerospace industry. Emphasis on design places the Embry-Riddle Electrical Engineering student in a unique position to increase employment opportunities after graduation.
The overall objective of the Electrical Engineering program at Prescott is to produce graduates who will be successful practitioners of electrical engineering. The program objectives to measure our accomplishment of this goal are engineers who:
- Demonstrate achievements in their chosen profession
- Contribute to the development of the profession
- Engage in professional growth
- Contribute to the welfare of society through service
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering requires the successful completion of a minimum of 127 credit hours. Students should be aware that several courses in each academic year may have prerequisites and/or corequisites. Check the course descriptions section of this catalog before registering for classes to ensure requisite sequencing. The B.S. degree requires a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 in all EE, ES, CEC, EGR, and CS courses that fulfill any degree requirement.
The Electrical Engineering degree includes a space option in which EP 394, AE 427, and AE 445 substitute for the ES elective, EE 420, and EE 421.
Students who are interested in robotics may take a robotics track within the EE program. The suggested program of study follows the regular EE degree plan.
