Electrical Engineering Major, B.S.


The Department of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering offers a four-year Bachelor of Science degree program in Electrical Engineering. The BS EE program prepares its students for industry and graduate study with the expectation of eventual leadership responsibilities. To that end, its faculty and facilities emphasize design and industrial experience, student-faculty-industry cooperative projects, teamwork, the adoption of new technologies, and the hands-on student utilization of laboratories and computing systems. The Electrical Engineering program maintains professional accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (ABET, 415 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21201; Telephone: (410) 347-7700).

The EE program is designed to achieve a balance among the major areas of Communication Systems, Microelectronics, and Computer Systems. Descriptions of program objectives and outcomes are publicly posted in the department and on the department’s webpages.

The Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) is also available. This degree program is described in the Graduate Bulletin.
