Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE)
Electrical engineering focuses on the application of the principles of electricity and its use with electrical devices and systems. In this energy conscious world, a thorough understanding of energy and its uses is essential to the success of an electrical engineer.
Graduates of electrical engineering have the qualifications to enter careers in areas such as, but not limited to, telecommunications, computer engineering, manufacturing, aerospace industry, power generation and distribution, alternative energy, robotics, and automation.
Program Educational ObjectivesProgram 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 electrical engineering will:
- Demonstrate career advancement with increasing responsibility in the electrical engineering industry as owners, managers, lead engineers, or other key positions of leadership.
- Meet the educational requirements to pursue registration as a professional engineer in the State of Georgia and all other states in the nation.
- To produce graduates who possess effective research and development skills and who are successfully enrolled in graduate education within Electrical Engineering and related fields.
Student OutcomesStudent outcomes describe the knowledge and skills acquired by students who complete the program. Students completing the program will have:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- 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
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- 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
- 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
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Prior to enrolling in upper-level courses, students must meet the requirements needed for the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology. View engineering standing requirements.
