The Department of Electrical Engineering offers a four-year degree program leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE). This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, Inc., the national accrediting board for engineering and technology. The degree program includes both traditional electrical engineering as well as a computer engineering option.
The mission of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Arkansas Tech University is to maintain an accredited program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. The Department is committed to providing its students with a positive atmosphere in which to learn the fundamentals of engineering practice including engineering science and design. In order to fulfill its mission, the Department has established the following educational objectives.
Engineers Who Graduate From Arkansas Tech University With A BSEE Degree Will Be:
Intellectuals - with a commitment to ethics, social and environmental responsibility, lifelong learning
Team Players - communicating, planning, coordinating, and managing projects and personnel with efficiency and effectiveness
Professionals - trained and competent in the fundamentals of engineering science, applied mathematics, laboratory practice, and Principles of electrical and computer engineering
Problem Solvers - learning new concepts, techniques, skills, and tools to aid in analyzing and designing electrical engineering systems
The first two years of curriculum contain the needed science, mathematics, engineering, and computer science basics to prepare the student for the upper level courses. The junior and senior years of the traditional electrical engineering path include 12 hours of electives which allow students to concentrate their studies in an area of specialization such as electric power, controls and robotics, or communications.
The following curriculum represents the program of study and a suggested sequence for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. The student should be aware that not all courses are offered each semester and that the ordering of courses is subject to change. In order to minimize scheduling difficulties, each student should schedule a special session with their advisor at the beginning of their junior year to plan the remaining coursework.
