Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

It is highly recommended that all freshmen engineering students starting fall 2017 purchase laptop computers. Laptop computer specifications are at:

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 curriculum include 6 hours of technical electives, 3 hours of mathematics elective and 6 hours of electrical engineering electives which allow students to concentrate their studies in an area of specialization: electric power, controls and robotics, or communications. Students are able to practice and become licensed as electrical engineers when they graduate from ATU's ABET, Inc. accredited electrical engineering program.

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 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.
