The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) is organized around a core of required courses and a selection of elective courses from four Specialization Areas: Computer Engineering; Data Science/Systems; Neuroengineering, and Photonics, Electronics and Nano-devices (PEN). See the Specialization Areas section for requirements.
The B.S.E.E. is the usual degree taken by students planning a career in engineering practice and can reduce the time required to become a licensed professional engineer. Accreditation and professional licensure are important for some careers, and many states require licensure for those providing engineering services directly to the public, for example, as a consultant. The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. More information can be found on the Accreditation page on this site.
A B.S.E.E. program must have a total of at least 134 semester hours. A course can satisfy only one program requirement. Students who place out of required courses without transcript credit must substitute other approved courses in the same area. See the section in the General Announcements for the general university degree requirements.
