Electrical Engineering - Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S. EE) program of the Klipsch School is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. This particular option of the B.S. EE program has "no concentration," giving students the greatest flexibility in course selection.

Electrical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

Below are the program educational objectives (PEOs) that describe the expected accomplishments of graduate during their first few years after graduation.

  1. Our graduates will obtain relevant, productive employment in the private sector, government and/or pursue an advanced degree.
  2. Our graduates will be using their engineering foundation to innovate solutions to the problems of the real world.

Requirements (123-125 credits)

Students must complete all University degree requirements, which include: General Education requirements, Viewing a Wider World requirements, and elective credits to total at least 123 credits with 48 credits in courses numbered 300 or above. Developmental coursework will not count towards the degree requirements and/or elective credits, but may be needed in order to take the necessary English and Mathematics coursework.
