Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) degree program is designed to prepare graduates to enter what is arguably the most diverse and useful engineering discipline in our world today. From global positioning technology that can track the location of a vehicle, to sub-micron, integrated circuit (IC) chips that power today’s wireless technologies, electrical engineers are responsible for some of the world’s most exciting technological breakthroughs. The BSEE program at the CTU Colorado Springs campus is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 – telephone: (410)347-7700.

The educational objectives of the BSEE Program are to provide graduates with: 1) discipline and expertise to a sufficient degree to be productive, entry-level electrical engineers within the industry; and 2) the academic preparation for entry into the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) program.

Outcomes:

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