BS in Electrical Engineering

Students in Lab.

Program Description

The undergraduate degree offered by the Department is the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE), a four year degree program. The program provides the scope of knowledge and training needed for employment and also forms the basis for further study at the graduate level. The BS degree in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The BSEE curriculum includes math, science, and basic engineering courses in the freshman and sophomore years, required electrical engineering courses in the junior and senior years, and technical elective courses in the senior year. As there are many similarities during the first year of all engineering disciplines' curricula, students can transfer among engineering majors fairly easily in the freshman year. Students also have considerable flexibility in the selection of technical elective courses, allowing them to specialize in an electrical engineering sub-discipline. Also available to interested students are several work-experience courses (internships and engineering co-op).
