Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) program focuses on the theories, practices, competencies, tools, and technologies associated with electrical engineering. You’ll get both online-classroom instruction and hands-on lab experience to help prepare you to excel as an electrical engineer. Courses include foundations in math, computer science, and physical sciences and cover a broad range of topics, such as:
- Basic elements in analog circuit design
- Fundamentals of circuit analysis – Ohm’s law, Kirchhoff’s law, superposition, etc.
- International System of Units
- Digital and logic circuit analysis and design in 6 main parts
- Energy conversion and transport
- Electromagnetic field theory
- Passive microwave circuit analysis and design
- Transmitting and receiving information without wires
- Radar and RF signal propagation, transmission, and reception
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 4% job growth by 2022 for electrical and electronics engineers due to the engineer’s versatility in developing and applying emerging technologies. Because this program fills a market-driven educational need, earning your BSEE could give you a step up in starting a career in industries ranging from aerospace, telecommunications, and defense to automotive, medical, construction, chemical, and more.
Note: The technology fee for the engineering courses (ENGR and ELEN prefixes) in this program is $100. Some of the engineering courses will require you to purchase course materials to confirm and apply the concepts. The total cost for these course materials is approximately $12,000, and is not covered by the undergraduate book grant.
The initial ENGR and ELEN courses will begin to be open for registration in July 2014 for sessions starting in September. The remaining ENGR and ELEN courses will be phased in at regular intervals. Students are strongly encouraged to take COMM200 as their Humanities GEN ED and ECON101 as their Social Science GEN ED options.
Virginia State residents: The BSEE program is not currently open for admission to Virginia State Residents.
