Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
The Electrical Engineering program contains six options. All options are divided into two-year lower and upper divisions. The lower division provides diverse courses covering a broad base of technical subjects while the upper division provides the more specialized courses.
* Nine hours of electives must be selected from core curriculum courses. Three of these hours must be in fine arts, three hours in humanities, and three hours in cultural diversity. At least 12 hours must be selected from one of the options described below. Three hours of approved technical electives must be selected from upper level courses in Engineering or the Biological or Physical Sciences. Three additional hours of technical electives must be chosen from the technology and society menu of the core curriculum and they must be upper level.
Options Each option lists courses that permit students to develop a specialization or pursue particular career objectives. In satisfying the requirements of an option, students will complete an in-depth program of current interest to electrical engineering. Students should select an option prior to completion of the junior year and plan their course of study in order to satisfy any prerequisite for courses within their chosen option. Most option courses are offered only once each academic year. By careful selection of electives, students may obtain more depth in their chosen option or develop breadth in electrical engineering. Students may petition their advisor for course substitution within the option.
