Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
College of Engineering & Computer Science
Integral to Society
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 Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program, you will study, model, analyze and design systems that modern societies rely on.
This four-year project-based program provides a solid foundation in mathematics, science and engineering principles, and in the humanities and social sciences. The curriculum focuses heavily on engineering design and 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.
Success by Design
Electrical engineering students at Wentworth gain experience solving and simulating engineering problems through the extensive use of computers, control devices, equipment and systems. After learning the essential theories and developing key problem-solving and laboratory skills, you’ll design, build and test an advanced engineering project in your senior year.
Upon graduation you will be well-prepared for a career 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.
The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
