Electrical Engineering (EE)

BS in Electrical Engineering


The mission of the Electrical Engineering program is to fulfill the needs of students, of industry and government, and of the local, national, and global community in the area of electrical engineering.

Program Educational Objectives

The goals of the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Program are to prepare the students to be successful and advance in their chosen careers in industry, academia, and public institutions, and to make significant contributions to the field of electrical engineering.

The above goals are achieved by the students applying the following program educational objectives:
  1. a solid foundation in basic science, mathematics, and EE practices and major design skills to maintain high employability, adaptability, and an ability to develop and apply new technology.
  2. effective communication skills to be able to progress in their careers
  3. an awareness of ethical and societal responsibilities
  4. an ability to work effectively in a team environment

Student Learning Outcomes

Electrical engineering student outcomes that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives are presented in this section. The EE student outcomes derived from the ABET student outcomes (a) through (k) plus an additional outcome particularly articulated by the BSEE program are listed as follows:

  1. An ability to apply the knowledge of math, science, and engineering that is required in the electrical engineering profession
  2. An ability to design and conduct electrical engineering experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. An ability to design an electrical or electronic system or component to meet desired needs within realistic constraints
  4. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve electrical engineering problems
  5. Effective written and oral communication skills and ability to understand different disciplines
  6. Knowledge of contemporary issues (not necessarily in engineering)
  7. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for electrical engineering practice
  8. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  9. Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility of engineers and the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
  10. An ability to continue to learn and improve new skills and knowledge
  11. In-depth understanding one area in electrical engineering
The outcome No.11 is achieved by choosing one of the five EE elective sequences and satisfying the requirements for a studentís selected sequence.
