The department offers two undergraduate degrees: the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) and the Bachelor of Arts in Electrical Engineering (BA). Both degrees are organized around a core of required courses and a selection of elective courses from five Specialization Areas: Computer Engineering; Data Science; Neuroengineering; Photonics, Electronics and Nano-devices; and Systems.
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering:
Upon completing the BSEE degree, students majoring in Electrical Engineering will demonstrate:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering.
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- An ability to design a system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- An ability to communicate effectively.
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context.
- A recognition of the need for, and ability to engage in, life-long learning.
- A knowledge of contemporary issues.
- An ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
More BSEE information can be found here.
Bachelor of Arts in Electrical Engineering:
Upon completing the BA degree, students majoring in Electrical Engineering will be able to demonstrate similar learning outcomes as students completing the BSEE degree, with the exception of outcome 4 since capstone design is not required for the BA degree. The program educational objectives for the BA degree are the same as for the BSEE degree.
