Undergraduate Program

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

The accredited curriculum leading to the degree of bachelor of science in Electrical Engineering is intended to qualify students to begin a professional career in electrical engineering or to proceed to advanced study. The departmental concentration electives and free electives permit the undergraduate to select additional courses in the core areas. Students may study a wide variety of topics including electric machines, semiconductor integrated circuits, VLSI design, biomedical engineering, microwaves and telecommunications, antennas and antenna systems, optical electronics, lasers, Fourier optics, fiber optics, digital image processing, semiconductor and optoelectronics materials, signal processing, switching circuit design, computer architecture, parallel processing, computer systems and multimedia.

This degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The core courses of the degree program contain elements of design as well as analysis, and include associated laboratory work. They involve concepts of circuits and systems, digital and analog electronics, microprocessors, electromagnetic fields, automatic control and communication. Of the 120 semester-hour units (SHUs) or more required for the professional degrees accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, a minimum of 30 SHUs must be completed in college level math and basic science subjects appropriate to the discipline and a minimum of 45 SHUs must be completed in engineering topics, consistent with ABET general and program criteria.
