About this Program
Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.ABET.org.
Electrical Engineering (EE) encompasses research, development, design and
operation of electrical and electronic systems and their components. This
program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE). The
primary objective of the Electrical Engineering program is to educate engineering
professionals who possess a sound design and analytical background coupled
with a strong laboratory experience. This means that the department prepares
its Electrical Engineering graduates for:
1. Entry into the engineering work environment with well-developed design
and laboratory skills.
2. Further study toward advanced degrees in engineering and other related
3. Advancement into managerial ranks and/or entrepreneurial endeavors.
The educational objectives for our Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
degree are to prepare our graduates to:
1. Function as responsible members of society with an awareness of the social,
ethical, and economic ramifi cations of their work.
2. Become successful practitioners in engineering and other diverse careers.
3. Succeed in full time graduate and professional studies.
4. Pursue continuing and life-long learning opportunities.
5. Pursue professional registration.
6. Provide foundational education.
Our metrics for determining success in meeting these objectives will include:
1. Assessment of societal, economic awareness, and ethical performance of
our graduates by the graduate and employer.
2. Monitoring of the success of our graduates in the work force.
3. Monitoring of the success of our graduates in graduate and professional
4. Assessment of continuing and life-long learning by the graduate (and their
employer as applicable).
5. Reviewing the number and success of our students completing professional
registration to advance their careers.
The Electrical Engineering degree curriculum includes the following components:
1. A strong background in the physical sciences, mathematics, and the engineering
sciences including extensive hands-on laboratory instruction.
2. An integrated design component including instruction in basic practices and
procedures, creativity, control, economics, and synthesis. The process begins
with basic instruction during the fi rst year and concludes with a capstone
3. A choice of several sub-disciplines in their senior level elective offerings
(digital, controls, communications, microelectronics design and fabrication).
4. Opportunities for students to develop sensitivity to the social and humanistic
implications of technology and motivate them to make worth while contributions
to the profession and society, while upholding the highest standards of
5. Courses in business and economics to promote awareness of management
and the economic aspects of engineering.
6. Preparation for continuing study and professional development.
The curriculum offers students the opportunity to emphasize a number of
specialized areas including digital systems, communications, controls, and
microelectronic design and fabrication.
