Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to prepare our graduates to immediately contribute to the workforce of the profession, and to be prepared to pursue advanced study and engage in continuous professional development.

Undergraduate Courses

The first two years of the undergraduate curriculum emphasize the physical sciences and mathematics. Additionally, fundamental classes in digital principles, circuits, and signals complete the second year. The third year consists of coordinated sequences in electronics and electronic circuits, communications and signal processing, microprocessors and microcomputers, and electromagnetic theory. Fourth-year courses are designed to reinforce lab skills, practice design, and broaden the students’ background knowledge through technical electives. Technical electives allow undergraduates  flexibility to concentrate in the broad areas of energy systems, optics and photonics, communications, signal processing and networking, and solid state electronics.

Choices of Technical Electives

During their Senior year, students may choose to enroll in technical and free electives of interest. Technical electives allow undergraduates flexibility to concentrate in the broad areas of energy systems, optics and photonics, communications, signal processing and networking, and solid state electronics.
