Electrical Engineering

 

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

This program deals with the study and use of technology and applied science involving electrical phenomena. It involves the application of the basic theories in the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of electrical apparatuses and systems as they are used in the generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electrical energy for various commercial, industrial, and other purposes.

It is important that the student builds a good foundation in the areas of mathematics and physical science. It is oriented towards the understanding of the basic theory and concepts needed for entry into any of the many activities in the profession including but not limited to design, operations and management, teaching, sales, and consulting.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Within the five years after graduation, the graduates of the Electrical Engineering program shall have:

  1. Undertaken singly or in teams, projects that show ability to solve complex engineering problems

  2. Had substantial involvement in projects that take into consideration safety, health, environmental concerns and the public welfare, partly through adherence to required codes and laws

  3. Demonstrated professional success via promotions and/or positions of increasing responsibility

  4. Demonstrated life-long learning via progress toward completion of an advanced degree, professional development/continuing education courses, or industrial training courses

  5. Demonstrated technical expertise, professionalism, and ethics in power, energy, entrepreneurship or other related fields in the practice of electrical engineering for the advancement of industry and society.
