BSc in Electrical Engineering


Program Description


The mission of the Benedictine College School of Engineering is to provide a multidisciplinary engineering undergraduate education built on an authentically Catholic liberal arts foundation. Graduates of the program will be professionals who are excellent problem solvers, committed to the highest ethical standards and proficient communicators. They will understand the role of engineering as a profession and their duty, as engineers, to promote the common good of society.

Degree Objectives

  • Balanced & Responsible: Graduates will maintain a balanced lifestyle pursuing what is good, true, and beautiful. As they live out their vocation, they will contribute significantly to personal, family, workplace, community, and church endeavors.
  • Competent & Creative: Graduates will demonstrate technical knowledge and expertise in their profession and will innovate beyond the state of the art.
  • Communicate & Lead: Graduates will demonstrate interpersonal and professional skills so as to effectively lead teams and projects of substantial size.

Career Opportunities

  • Overall employment of electrical and electronics engineers is projected to grow 7 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations. The change in employment is expected to be tempered by slow growth or decline in most manufacturing industries in which electrical and electronics engineers are employed.
  • The median annual wage for electrical engineers was $95,060 in May 2017.
