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.
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.
