Electrical Engineering (B.S.)

The Bachelor of Science Degree Program in Electrical Engineering includes the study and design of production systems and the transmission and measurement of electrical signals. It emphasizes the analysis, design, implementation and testing of these systems. In the curriculum there are four submajors: Communication Systems; Control Systems; Electronic Systems; and Power and Energy Systems. The Electrical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)” (www.abet.org).

Description of Submajors
  1. Communication Systems: The communications systems are electrical systems that generate, transmit and distribute information.
  2. Control Systems: The control systems consist of systems and subsystems that, assembled to each other, control a certain plant or process.
  3. Electronic Systems: The purpose of the electronic systems is to extract, store, transport, or process the information in a signal.
  4. Power and Energy Systems: The power systems work with the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy. In addition, they are responsible for the generating and transforming devices connected to the electrical networks, such as generators and transformers.

These study programs aim to enable the student to practice electrical engineering at a professional level.
