Electrical Engineering - BS
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University offers a Bachelor of Science degree option to its undergraduate students desiring to major in Electrical Engineering.
Electrical engineers design, develop, test and supervise the manufacture of sophisticated electrical and electronic systems such as: cell phones, iPods, digital TVs, medical imaging, smart appliances, automobiles and advanced satellite systems. Many electrical engineers also work in areas closely related to computers. Areas of specialization include analog and mixed-signal electronics; biomedical imaging, sensing and genomic signal processing; computer engineering and systems; device science and nanotechnology; energy and power; electromagnetics and microwaves; and information science and systems.
The bachelor’s degree program in electrical engineering has been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. With ABET accreditation, students, parents, employers and the society we serve can be confident that a program meets the quality standards that produce graduates prepared to enter a global workforce.
The mission of the electrical engineering program is threefold:
- To create new knowledge and challenge young minds by participation in the process of discovery and invention;
- To educate electrical engineers with a solid background of fundamentals, stretching their imagination, and preparing them for an exciting future; and
- To serve the society through research, education, and outreach activities.
Program Educational Objectives
The educational objectives of the electrical engineering program are to produce graduates whose expected accomplishments within a few years of graduation are:
- Graduates who choose to pursue a career in industry or government will become productive and valuable electrical engineers.
- Graduates who choose to pursue advanced degrees will be able to gain admission to graduate programs and succeed in top graduate programs.
- Graduates will lead and work effectively on diverse teams to promote a breadth of perspectives in developing, communicating, and executing solutions across a broad range of electrical engineering application areas.
- In keeping with the legacy of an Aggie Engineer, graduates will be successful in attaining positions of leadership in their professional careers.
Before commencing course work in the major, students must be admitted to the major or have the approval of the department. The full bachelors program is offered on College Station and Qatar campuses. All electrical engineering undergraduate coursework is offered on both campuses.
