Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) Program

The BSEE program prepares graduates to enter the workforce or to enter an advanced degree program. It has a curriculum of 128 semester credit hours.

The BSEE program is based on a strong foundation of mathematics, physical sciences, humanities, and social sciences that prepares a graduate for his/her roles in society and work. Students take a core of fundamental engineering course work. Required electrical engineering courses provide the breadth and depth needed to analyze and design the complex electrical and electronic devices, software, and systems of this diverse field. Laboratory experiences reinforce classroom discussions and provide hands-on experience with state-of-the-art technologies and design methods. As students progress through the curriculum, the complexity of analysis and design assignments increases to approach the complexity experienced in the practice of electrical engineering. Senior electives provide the opportunity to explore specialized areas at a level of depth that provides graduates with the skills and knowledge required to be immediately productive upon graduation. The curriculum culminates in a capstone design experience in which students work in teams to design, develop, and test solutions to real-world engineering problems.
