Electrical Engineering

Now Accepting Applications for Autumn 2018

The Institute of Technology is proud to offer a new (Autumn 2017) Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.

About EE

The goal of the BSEE program is to provide a rigorous learning experience and collaborative environment for students in the major. This new program is consistent with the UWT mission of expanding the boundaries of knowledge and discovery. The degree is also responsive to regional needs and to engineering education reform, serving both traditional and nontraditional students by providing degree pathways for both freshman and transfer students.

While EE and CES share many courses at the freshman and sophomore levels, the BSEE curriculum emphasizes circuit design for applications such as communications, signal processing, electromagnetics, controls, and embedded systems.

The high demand and salaries for electrical engineers, both at the regional and national levels, is evident from career outlook data. Graduates of the program will be eligible for jobs in companies like Boeing, Intel, and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Bremerton.

Learning Outcomes

The EE curriculum satisfies all requirements of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The new BS degree program in EE will seek accreditation through ABET when it becomes eligible.

Student learning outcomes The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) is a non-governmental organization that accredits post-secondary education programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. Students who complete the BSEE program will achieve the following ABET-based learning outcomes:

a.  An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
b.  An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
c.  An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
d.  An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
e.  An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
f.   An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
g.  An ability to communicate effectively.
h.  The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
i.  A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
j.  A knowledge of contemporary issues.
k.  An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
