Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering (EE) utilizes all phases of development and properties of electric energy. Our ABET accredited BSEE degree prepares students to specialize in areas such as electronics, robotics, electronic-based communications, signal and image processing, controls, and power systems.

Program Description

Electrical engineering is science-oriented and is primarily concerned with all phases and development of the transmission and utilization of electric energy and intelligence. The EE curriculum provides sufficient electives to allow a student to specialize in any one of seven areas: communications, computer engineering, systems and controls, electromagnetics, and electronics.

Students can complete all of the requirements for a dual degree with both a BS in Electrical Engineering and a BS in Computer Engineering.  In order to receive both degrees, all requirements for each degree must be met. If taken at the same time, elective courses may be carefully selected to maximize the overlap between the two programs, resulting in as few as an additional 13 credits required above one degree in order to complete the requirements for both.  See below for a best case list of the minimum number of courses required to complete all of the requirements for both degrees.  Note that if a student graduates with one degree, he/she must complete a minimum of 30 credits to receive the second degree.
