The BS in Electrical Engineering will admit new students beginning in Fall 2020. Transfer students can be admitted as early as Fall 2021, and students transferring 45 or more credits should consult with Dr. Sangho Park to discuss their prior coursework.
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) is to provide students with a broad and thorough education in Electrical Engineering fundamentals, applications, and design that prepares them to practice as professional electrical engineers with the confidence and skills necessary to meet the technical and social challenges of the future. The degree provides a broad and thorough education in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering coupled with application of modern engineering tools.
The BSEE program will serve the students and state of Connecticut by providing quality education in the practice of engineering. The degree will enable students to practice in a profession that contributes to technical and economic innovation while enhancing their own economic welfare. The BSEE will emphasize undergraduate education through quality instruction with a strong focus on analysis and design.
The BSEE offers students the opportunity to build knowledge and skill in both traditional applications of electrical engineering as well as innovative applications in emerging fields. The program curriculum includes courses and laboratories in both traditional electrical engineering and emerging fields such as renewable energy, energy storage, and electric vehicles, thus positioning the program for future development, research, and interdisciplinary education. With CCSU’s new, state-of-the-art building dedicated to engineering and technology opening in Fall 2021, the BSEE program is supported with more than 6,000 square feet teaching and laboratory space.
