BSEE Program Requirements

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.)

Students specializing in Electrical and Computer Engineering will complete the program outlined below: Two semesters in Engineering Fundamentals and a further period of study in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering - ten semesters in Departmental Studies (for the Bachelor of Science degree) and a fifth year in Graduate Studies (for the Master of Engineering degree). This curriculum is designed as an integrated five-year program, with a cooperative education component, culminating in the Master of Engineering degree that is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET http://www.abet.org.

Students in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department may make use of electives to design a course sequence toward an appropriate career goal. Students are encouraged to discuss their career goals and selection of electives with faculty.

1 Acceptance into the Department of Electrical Engineering requires that a student have a 2.0 GPA in the prescribed set of courses totaling 31 semester hours taken during the first year in Engineering Fundamentals. The prescribed courses are footnoted in the listing above. In addition, the student must be in good standing with the university. The only possible substitution to the list of courses totaling 31 hours above is noted in footnote 3.

2 General Education requirement for this program; see http://www.louisville.edu/provost/GER/ for the listing of Arts/CD/Hum/SBS Electives which satisfy the University-wide General Education requirements, by academic year. Note that the 12-hour total for the Arts/CD/HUM/SS electives assumes the use of double counting of CD with another category.

3 Students completing ENGL 105 in lieu of ENGL 101 and ENGL 102 satisfy the General Education and Engineering Fundamentals requirements for Written Communication.  However, an additional course is needed to satisfy program credit hour requirements; ENGL 303 (Technical Writing) is recommended. 

4 These electives must be chosen from the list of approved courses available online and in the department. Students must take 3 hours of Engineering Science Electives and 3 hours of CECS/Mathematics/Science Electives. An additional 3 hours of electives must be taken from either category. Some students may wish to use these electives toward satisfying the requirements for a minor in Mathematics or Physics; additional information is available from the ECE Department.
