Program Description

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Electrical devices have transformed the way we engage with each other and our environment. Electrical engineering is a challenging field in the center of this dynamic interaction between man and machine. Career opportunities are available in manufacturing, research, and development. This degree also prepares students for graduate school.

The undergraduate electrical engineering program introduces students to this complex field while inspiring the desire to continue learning new concepts and ideas. The first two years of the program provide a firm foundation in mathematics, natural science, basic engineering analysis and design, and an appreciation for the humanities and social sciences.

The technical part of the first two years provides instruction in the C++ programming language, electric circuit analysis, computer-aided design and simulation, and the logical design of digital circuits. Laboratories emphasize the use of computers and the basic instrumentation common to the profession. The last two years of the program are project-oriented. Students are assigned open-ended projects requiring invention and design to meet specifications. Many students will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with professors.

Since 1972, the electrical engineering program has been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
