Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) Degree
Electrical engineering is an applied science that encompasses multiple technological areas, including analog/digital electronics, computer aided drafting, robotic systems, control systems, wireless communications, machinery control, signal processing, embedded systems and many other applications. Electrical engineers develop and design ways to harness the power of electricity and electromagnetism for practical purposes ranging from heating up food in a microwave to programming robots to build cars. Electrical engineers are employed in many industries such as manufacturing, transportation, construction, business, education, government, healthcare, and other sectors.
B.S.E.E. Program Overview
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) program covers a variety of concepts in the electrical engineering discipline. Among the many topics in the curriculum are motor control systems, programmable logic controllers (PLC’s), robotic systems, industrial systems, power distribution, and computer aided drafting. Seniors complete a capstone project that provides the opportunity for them to pull together and apply ideas and concepts learned throughout the curriculum. The B.S.E.E. program is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).
The B.S.E.E. program is challenging, developed for career driven individuals, and scheduled with flexibility in mind. Highlights include:
- ACCELERATED The program can be completed between two to three years. How? Courses are scheduled to be continuous with no summer breaks.
- EVENING CLASSES Classes generally begin after 5pm to allow students to attend to other responsibilities throughout the daytime.
- FRONT LOADED TECHNICAL COURSES Course schedule sequences are designed for students to first complete primarily technical courses, not general eds, so that they can pursue entry level employment in technical fields to gain experience while pursuing their degree.
