Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE)

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

Mission of the Program

Electrical and electronic components, devices, and equipment are integrated into many of today’s products, from biomedical systems to the smart power grid. As a student in the Electrical Engineering program, you will study, model, analyze, and design systems that modern society relies on. The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering is  a four-year project-based program that includes a solid foundation in mathematics, science, and engineering principles, as well as the humanities and social sciences. Students are provided with the necessary theory, problem-solving skills, and laboratory exposure to design, build, and test their advanced senior design projects.

The program integrates engineering design throughout the curriculum and makes extensive use of computers in addition to control devices, equipment, and systems to solve and simulate engineering problems. The electrical engineering program of study includes courses in circuit theory, solid state devices, analog and digital circuits and systems, feedback and controls, motors, power distribution systems, signal processing, and communication systems. Students supplement their study of theory with extensive work in laboratory settings. Graduates are well-prepared for careers in fields such as analog and digital systems, acoustics, biomedical devices, computers, electric vehicle supplies, robotics, communication and control systems, sources of alternative energy, power distribution and smart grids.

Program Educational Objectives

After graduation, program graduates should demonstrate the abilities:

  • Lifelong learning: Pursue professional development to meet and adapt to the emerging and evolving technology.
  • Successful Careers: have a successful career in the field of electrical engineering or related fields.
  • Professionalism: Graduates will contribute to their fields or professions.

Student Outcomes

Students should demonstrate these abilities upon graduation. 

(1) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.

(2) An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.

(3) An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.

(4) An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.

(5) An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.

(6) An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

(7) An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
