Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE)

Students in Electrical Engineering (EE) study, design, and build devices and systems which utilize electricity and electromagnetic fields. This wide-ranging discipline covers problems at many scales, from the physical design of nano-sized transistors, through complex circuit analysis, up to the signals carried by communication and control systems. Application examples include cell phones, solar cells, power generation and distribution, and sensors.

  • Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe career and professional accomplishments that the program prepares graduates to achieve during the first few years following graduation.  Graduates of the Electrical Engineering program will:

    1. Apply their technical knowledge and skills in the advancement of their careers with increasing responsibility in the Electrical Engineering industry or in the pursuit of other fields.
    2. Possess effective research and development skills that will enable them to pursue graduate education in Electrical Engineering or related fields and enable them to continue with lifelong learning in their careers.
    3. Obtain careers where they will become leaders in their chosen field, be leaders in multidisciplinary teams, be active in professional organizations, make socially responsible decisions and demonstrate effective communication skills.
    4. Meet the educational requirements needed to pursue Professional Engineering licensure in the state of Georgia or other states.
  • Student outcomes describe the knowledge and skills acquired by students who complete the program. Students completing the program will have:
    1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
    2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
    3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
    4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
    5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
    6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
    7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
