Electrical Engineering

A Bachelor of Science degree program in Electrical Engineering prepares individuals to apply scientific and mathematical principles to the planning, design, and evaluation of electrical and electronic systems and their components.  This degree includes instruction in circuits, electronics, digital systems, electrical networks, electromagnetism, embedded control, programming, signal analysis, and electrical systems.

In accordance with the standards set forth by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, graduates from an Electrical Engineering program will have:

(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;

(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;

(c)  an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability;

(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams;

(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems;

(f)  an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility;

(g) an ability to communicate effectively;

(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;

(i)   a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning;

(j)   a knowledge of contemporary issues; and

(k)  an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

Input from electrical engineering faculty, industry, and research were utilized in the development of the Electrical Engineering curriculum.  As a means of validation, the A&M-Commerce degree was benchmarked against curricula from the ABET Electrical Engineering accredited schools, as well as the ABET Electrical Engineering curriculum requirements, and the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination.
