BS Electrical Engineering
The Electrical Engineering program deals with the study and use of technology and applied science involving electrical phenomena. It involves the application of the basic theories in the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of electrical apparatuses and systems as they are used in the generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electrical energy for various commercial, industrial, and other purposes. It also includes courses in power electronics, industrial automation, principles of communications, electromagnetics, entrepreneurship, with actual extensive use of computer applications in power systems such as load flow, short circuits, and dynamic solutions, to name a few.
It is important that the student builds a good foundation in the areas of mathematics and physical science. It is oriented towards the understanding of the basic theory and concepts needed for entry into any of the many activities in the profession including but not limited to design, operations and management, teaching, sales, and consulting
Laboratory experience is emphasized to provide familiarity with electrical, electronic, and computing equipment and with experimental techniques. Modern tools and laboratory equipment are available for electrical and electronic circuits, machines, power systems, and computer applications.
