Academic Catalog


Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Electrical Engineering (BSEE)

Vishnu K. Lakdawala, Chief Departmental Advisor

The electrical engineering undergraduate curriculum begins with a solid foundation in math, science, English, circuits, signals and linear systems, electronics, electromagnetics, digital systems, and microelectronics. Adequate elective freedom is available to the student to allow specialization in one or more of five areas: systems and automation engineering, physical electronics, computer hardware systems, power and renewable energy, or data analytics engineering.  Emphasis is placed on understanding principles through theoretical investigation and experimental verification. In addition, course work in General Education Skills and Ways of Knowing is required to assure a well-rounded program of study.

Students pursuing a BSEE degree are intended in their degree until Engineering Fundamental/foundational courses (I.E. Calculus I & II, Calculus-based University Physics I, Programming I, Chemistry I & II, and Engineering introductory courses) are completed.

Electrical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The electrical engineering program seeks to prepare graduates who, after the first few years of their professional career, have:

  1. established themselves as practicing engineering professionals in industry or government, or engaged in graduate study
  2. demonstrated their ability to work successfully as members of a professional team and function effectively as responsible professionals
  3. demonstrated their ability to adapt to new technology and career challenges

Student Outcomes

The electrical engineering student outcomes are as follows. Graduates must attain:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.


The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
