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 the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
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.
The educational objectives of the program leading to the BSEE degree at Arkansas Tech University are to:
1. Provide instruction in the fundamentals of engineering science, applied mathematics, laboratory practice, and the principles of electrical engineering.
2. Impart skills for clear communication, responsible teamwork, and effective planning and management of projects in preparation for the demands of modern society.
3. Teach the technical, computer, and structured problem solving skills necessary to effectively analyze and design electrical engineering systems.
4. Instill a sense of social and environmental responsibility, ethical professional conduct, and a respect for life long learning
The first two years of curriculum contain the needed mathematics, science and engineering science basics to prepare the student for the upper level electrical engineering courses. The junior and senior years include 12 hours of electives which allow students to concentrate their studies in an area of specialization such as electric power, computers, robotics, or acoustics
Prior to enrolling in any 3000 or 4000-level engineering courses, students must successfully complete a pre-professional curriculum containing preparatory courses normally taken during the first three semesters. The pre-professional curriculum is composed of the following courses:
ENGL 1013 and ENGL 1023 (or equivalent)
MATH 2914 and 2924
Satisfactory completion of the pre-professional curriculum is defined as a grade of "C" or better in each course or, alternatively, a grade point average of 2.20 or greater for the courses comprising the pre-professional curriculum. Students should meet with their advisor during the semester in which they anticipate completing the pre-professional curriculum to complete the procedure for admittance to upper-level engineering courses. By that time the student is expected to declare a major within engineering (BSEg, BSEE, BSME).
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. Students should consult with their academic advisor when entering their junior year in order to minimize scheduling difficulties.
