Electrical Engineering is the problem-solving foundation of our technological society. That's
because anything involving the movement of electrons falls within the province of electrical
engineering. Electrical engineers create, design, build, and improve everyday necessities we now take
for granted—from computers to cell phones; from DVD players to digital control systems in modern
automobiles; from arrays of sensors and signal and image processors to space-based communications;
and from advanced manufacturing robots to hybrid electric cars. Electrical engineers also design, test,
and fabricate the integrated circuit chips that make virtually all these devices possible.
Required courses in electronic circuits, control theory, communication theory, and electromagnetic theory give the student an overview of the electrical engineering discipline. At least one elective design sequence—in either control systems, electronic systems, communication systems, electromagnetic systems, or other as approved by an advisor—is required to provide strength and depth for each graduate. For example, two required courses in electronic circuits lead to a four-course elective sequence, culminating in a VLSI (very large scale integrated) circuit design project. Similarly, the required course in control theory leads to analog and digital controller design courses. In the capstone course, students design and test control circuits.

See General Education Requirements
*ME 315 may be substituted for CEG 221.
†The Technical Elective course is to be selected from courses numbered 200 and above in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, the College of Science and Mathematics, or the Raj Soin College of Business, and approved by the advisor. Redundant courses, such as MTH 228, MS 201, MS 202, CS 205, CS 206 and co-listed courses, may not be used as the Technical Elective course.
††Engineering elective courses (26 credit hours required). Students must select one of the four design sequences listed above as part of their engineering electives. The remaining electives must be selected from courses numbered 300 or above in the College of Engineering and Computer Science and approved by the advisor. At least 20 of the 26 credit hours must be from electrical engineering courses. Students desiring to complement electrical engineering skills with an increased emphasis on computer science may choose a minor in computer science for engineers and scientists. Those choosing the computer science minor will substitute CS 240 and CS 241 for CEG 220 and CEG 221. This minor is focused on programming theory, C and C++ languages, data structures, and an application area chosen from operating systems, software engineering, or database management systems.
