PROFESSOR JERRY F. SHOUP, Program Chair

The Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering provides a solid background in electrical engineering sciences. It also provides an opportunity for students to pursue interests in electrical and electronic circuits, including digital circuits and VLSI and its fabrication, microprocessors and their applications, electromagnetics, communications, control systems, and digital image processing and computer vision. Through participation in a senior capstone design, the curriculum emphasizes written as well as verbal communication and teamwork approach among the students to attain a common goal.

This program helps its graduates develop capabilities to analyze and design a variety of electrical and electronic systems found in many industrial and government settings as well as provide a foundation for further graduate studies. A strong background in the fundamentals is built through a broad base core in basic sciences (physics and chemistry) and mathematics as well as engineering sciences.

For a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering a minimum of 128 credits are required.

Entry to Major Requirements:
Entry to the Electrical Engineering major requires that the student has completed: MATH 140 GQ(4), MATH 141 GQ(4), PHYS 211 GN(4) or PHYS 201 GN(4), and CHEM 012 GN(3), CHEM 014 GN(1). A 2.00 or higher cumulative grade-point average is required.
