In the online BSEE program, 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.
- As an engineering student, you will be participating in hands-on, at-home lab exercises, which require you to purchase additional course materials. The estimated total cost of these materials is approximately $12,000, and is NOT covered by our university undergraduate book grant.
- The technology fee for engineering courses (ENGR and ELEN) is $100/course. Therefore, the estimated total technology fees for this program are $2,950, depending on the concentration you choose. (Note: technology fees are covered by grants for U.S. active-duty military service members, and for Guard and Reserve personnel when using military tuition assistance.)
Concentrations are designed to help you group courses together so you can further specialize in your field and pursue a more focused path to degree completion.
