The Department of Electrical Engineering will offer a program leading to a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology.
The curriculum offers students an in-depth foundation in Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology from the ground up by an interdisciplinary team of Wright State University faculty. This program uniquely emphasizes how requisite coursework from multiple fields of engineering and computer science relate to and can be applied to engineering technology, and is achieved via pedagogical best practices focused on engaging students in their learning, such that they are actively involved in understanding engineering concepts and ideas, and fostering scientific creativity and critical thinking.
The program's coursework focuses on foundational electrical and computer engineering topics toprepare students for real-world problem solving and design of electronic, computer, and software systems through a comprehensive curriculum of modern electrical & computer engineering design skills.
This program will aid in students being competitively prepared for careers in a variety of fields, including, but not limited to: automated manufacturing; electronics engineering; electrical engineering, electronics, or engineering technology; field service engineering; field test engineering; and systems engineering.
Domestic high school students will be granted admission to Wright State University upon fulfilling one of the following options:
- Complete the Ohio Core curriculum (or equivalent curriculum),
- Achieve a minimum cumulative high school grade point average of 2.0, and
- Achieve an ACT composite score of 15 or SAT score of 740 (combined critical reading and math)
- Complete the Ohio Core curriculum (or equivalent curriculum),,
- Achieve a minimum cumulative high school grade point average of 2.5, and
- Submit any ACT/SAT score
- To be admitted to the BSECET major, students must complete 24 or more semester hours of college-level coursework with a 2.25 GPA or higher, must complete ENG 1100 (or any WSU Core First-Year Writing Course) with a C or higher, and must satisfy the admission requirements for the BSECET, which includes earning a C or higher in CEG 2170 , (PHY 1110 and PHY 1110L or PHY 2400 and PHY 2400L ), and (MTH 2240 or MTH 2300).
Program Learning Outcomes:
The B.S. in Electrical & Computer Engineering Technology prepares students for real-world problem solving and design of electronic, computer, and software systems through a comprehensive curriculum of modern electrical & computer engineering design skills.
Undergraduate Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Program Learning Goals
