Electrical Curriculum

Undergraduate EE Curriculum

The Department seeks to provide for its students a strong foundation including basic engineering science, mathematics, basic sciences and electrical engineering design. One of the main objectives is to have students reach competence through proper choic­es of technical electives and logical sequences of courses in the following thrust areas:

  • Energy Systems, including: Power Systems, Control Systems, Power Electronics

  • Microelectronic Systems, including: Electronic Materials, Opto electronics, Integrated Circuits

  • Communication Systems, including: Telecommunications, Digital Signal Processing, Electromagnetics

  • Control Systems, including: Modeling, Optimization, System Analysis, Digital Control

The Department's laboratory complex, with both general purpose and specialized laboratories, is an essential part of the facilities. Laboratory courses are closely integrat­ed with lecture courses. Students are thereby able to gain invaluable experience with "hardware" and develop the skills, resources, and knowledge essential to successful engi­neering practice.

The electrical engineering program offers courses in the areas of microprocessors, digital design, circuit theory, control systems, electronic circuits and applications, logic­ circuit, communication systems, electromagnetic fields, and semiconductor engineer­ing. Elective courses permit concentration in selected areas.

Based on SAT/ACT results, a student may be required to take Reading 101 and/or Reading 102. Each Reading course yields zero credit hours and must be taken during the first year of enrollment. Additionally, a student may be required to take English 100, a 3 credit hour course. A minimum grade of "C" is required in English 100 and each Reading course.
