Electrical Engineering, B.S.E.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering

The electrical engineering curriculum consists of classroom and laboratory experiences related to the following topics: engineering design, electrical and electronic circuits and models, control systems, communication systems, design of analog and digital systems, and organization and design of microprocessor-based computer systems.

The electrical engineering curriculum leads to the B.S.E. degree in Electrical Engineering. Department criteria for graduation include completion of all courses in one of the two emphases, electrical engineering or computer engineering, with a minimum grade point average of C (2.0) in the Upper Division Requirements.

A minor field program in electrical engineering is also supported. Course work includes 18 semester hours to be determined in consultation with the Department Chairperson. All minor field programs require the approval of the student's major field faculty advisor and the Department Chairperson in the student's major field.

Accreditation

The electrical engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012; telephone: 410.347.7700.

Objectives


The electrical engineering program has established the following program educational objectives that are consistent with the mission of the University and the Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering. The objectives describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during the first several years following graduation. The electrical engineering program graduates will:

  1. Perform effectively as practicing engineers and/or successfully undertake graduate study in electrical engineering or related fields;
  2. Meet the challenges of the future through continuing professional growth; and
  3. Exhibit concern for service and justice through leadership within their profession, as well as the community as a whole.

These program educational objectives are met by providing a curriculum which has both breadth and depth. Engineering science and design, mathematics and basic sciences are significant components of the electrical engineering program. In addition to these traditional technical courses, and in keeping with the Jesuit tradition of educating the whole person, the curriculum includes core requirements in the humanities, communications, and the fine arts.

Opportunities for involvement in professional societies, student design competitions, and University co-curricular activities are plentiful and help to accomplish these objectives.

Design in Electrical Engineering


Design is interwoven throughout the electrical engineering curriculum, culminating in a formal senior design project course. Freshman and sophomore engineering courses provide an introduction to design. The two junior and first-semester senior laboratory courses extend this design experience to the integration of material from the upper division electrical engineering courses. Finally, the senior design project experience builds on the analytical and theoretical background developed throughout the curriculum as well as topics covered in the University's core curriculum.
