The four-year Bachelor of Science degree program in Electrical Engineering (EE) is dedicated to the principle of preparing its students for industry and graduate study with the expectation of eventual leadership responsibilities. To that end, its faculty and facilities focus on an emphasis of design and industrial experience, student-faculty-industry cooperative projects, teamwork, the adoption of new technologies, and on the hands-on student utilization of laboratories and computing systems. The Electrical Engineering Program maintains ABET accreditation as noted above in the general program description.
The EE program is designed to achieve a balance among the major areas of Communication Systems, Microelectronics, and Computer Systems. The student may choose to specialize within the EE program in any of the following areas: Communication and Information Systems; Computer Hardware and Software Engineering; and Design and Fabrication of Microelectronic Devices and Circuits. A description of program objectives and outcomes is available in the Division office and is posted on the Division of Engineering and Physics Bulletin Board.
A Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) is also available. This degree program is described in the Graduate Bulletin.
