Electrical Engineering (EE) B.S.

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:

1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

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.
