B.S. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

Program Overview

The Electrical Engineering Bachelor’s Degree is a rigorous, heavily lab-oriented engineering program aiming to develop practical engineering knowledge and skillsets for graduates seeking broad opportunities for professional growth or advancement in electrical engineering or technologist related fields and industries. Through a hands-on integrated approach, students learn about electronic circuitry, engineering software applications, industrial and robotic systems, electrical power systems and distribution, electric machines, and more to understand how to identify and solve complex engineering problems found throughout a variety of industries. Students may choose to complete the core program curriculum or opt for a front-loaded path where they complete the Industrial Automation Technology or General Electrician Diploma so that they are job-ready early, allowing students to acquire working knowledge in their field of choice as they pursue a degree. The program supports a “work while you study” schedule that allows students to gain work experience while pursuing their education.

This program is a strong choice if:

  • You want to learn the practical knowledge required to solve complex engineering problems
  • You want to learn and develop the skill sets to apply the engineering design process to produce solutions that meet specific needs
  • You’re interested in electrical power and pursuing fields related to the generation, transmission and delivery of electricity
  • You’re interested in gaining the practical, hands-on skillsets required to pursue fields in automation
  • You want to build a portfolio of industry-related project experience, including a senior capstone project of your choosing, that can help you when seeking a job.

Courses are offered in 5-week modules scheduled continuously throughout the year, allowing a student to complete a bachelor’s degree in less than three years. Courses are scheduled during evening hours with start times ranging anywhere between 5pm and 9pm, with most courses starting around 6pm. Most modules have a Monday-Thursday schedule with a couple requiring a Friday schedule as well. For details and start dates, please contact the Admissions Office or request for information.

The B.S.E.E. program is offered in the following formats:


BLENDED (PART-CAMPUS/PART-ONLINE)
Some courses are offered on-campus (in-person) whereas others are offered online. Courses containing substantial hands-on labs are generally those offered on-campus utilizing SCIT’s instructional lab facilities.


ONLINE
All courses are taken fully online with trainers utilized for labs completed at home.


B.S.E.E. Curriculum

The B.S.E.E. program’s curriculum is designed to support a hands-on based learning experience that develops practical engineering skills and reinforces theory. To support our curriculum, SCIT heavily invests in expansive instructional laboratories and trainers equipped with wide-ranging, real-world industrial devices spanning various engineering disciplines.
