The undergraduate program in electrical engineering, which leads to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree, provides a broad foundation in electrical engineering through combined classroom and laboratory work and prepares the student for entering the profession of electrical engineering as well as for further study at the graduate level.
Core courses provide the student with a strong background in mathematics, physical sciences and the fundamentals of engineering. Each electrical engineering student must take the following core courses.
Each student must show a depth of competence in one technical area by taking at least three courses from one of the following seven areas. Note that this depth requirement may be met using a combination of the above core courses and a selection of open and technical electives.
At least 10 of the 14 required Electrical Engineering courses (EECS 281, 245, 246, 309, 313, 321, 398, 399, and the 6 Technical Electives) in the Electrical Engineering BS program must be satisfied by courses from the EECS department.
In consultation with a faculty advisor, a student completes the program by selecting 18 credit hours of technical electives and 9 credit of hours of open elective courses that provide in-depth training in one or more of a spectrum of specialties such as digital control, electronics, and integrated circuit design and fabrication. With the approval of the advisor a students may emphasize other specialties by selecting elective courses from other programs or departments.
Additionally, math and statistics classes are highly recommended as an integral part of the student's technical electives to prepare for work in industry and government and for graduate school. The following math/statistics classes are recommended and would be accepted as approved technical electives:
Other Math/Statistics may be used as technical electives with the approval of the student's academic advisor.
Many courses have integral or associated laboratories in which students gain “hands-on” experience with electrical engineering principles and instrumentation. Students have ready access to the teaching laboratory facilities and are encouraged to use them during nonscheduled hours in addition to the regularly scheduled laboratory sessions. Opportunities also exist for undergraduate student participation in the wide spectrum of research projects being conducted in the department.
Students enrolled in degree programs in other engineering departments can have a minor specialization by completing the following courses:
The department also offers a minor in electronics for students in the College of Arts and Science. This program requires the completion of 29 credit hours, of which 10 credit hours may be used to satisfy portions of the students' skills and distribution requirements. The following courses are required for the electronics minor:
