Electrical Engineering B.E.E.

Electrical and Computer Engineering
College of Science and Engineering
  • Program Type: Baccalaureate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2012
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 128
  • Required credits within the major: 105
  • Degree: Bachelor of Electrical Engineering
The mission of the electrical engineering program is to educate students in the core topics as well as in a broad set of specialties of electrical engineering, to impart students with professional attributes that characterize a well-schooled engineer and citizen, and to provide students with opportunities for research experience in one of the leading electrical engineering centers of scholarship. Electrical engineers work in highly diverse areas such as computers, telecommunications, semiconductors, electric energy, consumer and entertainment electronics, biomedical technology, defense and aerospace systems, and automotive electronics. They design and develop components, software, and systems; carry out analysis; and work in research, management, and sales. The bachelor of electrical engineering prepares students for immediate entry into professional work, for graduate study and further specialization in engineering, for advanced work in business and management, or for study in a different direction such as medicine.
