The Electrical Engineering Program at UWF is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. The BSEE is provided by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), whose mission statement is to offer baccalaureate degree programs in electrical and computer engineering which serve the needs of the West Florida region, the State, and the nation. 

The goal of the baccalaureate degree program is to prepare students to embark upon a professional career in electrical engineering or to begin a graduate study. Graduates will be known for their accomplishments in the early stage of their careers and they should:

  • Develop electrical engineering solutions individually and through interdisciplinary teams within a global and societal context.
  • Professionally and ethically engage in technical or business activity through engineering ability, communication skills, and knowledge.
  • Continue professional growth through post-graduate education, continuing education, or professional activity.
  • Contribute to the Northwest Florida regional economic development.

Electrical Engineering is science-oriented and primarily concerned with all phases and development of the transmission and utilization of electric energy and intelligence. Because of the extremely rapid growth and changes relating to the application of electrical engineering principles, the curriculum is designed to concentrate on a solid core of foundation courses. Twelve hours of electives are included to permit a student to delve deeply into selected subject matter.

Electrical Engineers find career opportunities in a wide area of settings such as aerospace contractors, manufacturers of consumer electronics, telecommunications, energy distribution, and public-sector positions with federal, state, and local governments.

Program Requirements


Students are required to have a laptop or tablet PC. Please visit department website for information about minimum hardware configuration, department scholarships and other useful information.

In addition to the university’s general requirements, students seeking the B.S.E.E. must meet the requirements listed below.

A minimum course grade of "C" or better is required in all math, science, and
engineering courses that serve as prerequisites to EGN, EGM, EML, EEL, and EEE
prefixed courses and labs.  In addition, a minimum "C" grade is required for the electrical engineering core courses. See below for a list of all courses that require a minimum grade of a "C". 

The electrical engineering curriculum is designed to yield a set of outcomes. Each upper division course in the program contributes to at least one of these outcomes. A current list of our program outcomes and the courses that map to them can be found here.

All students must complete an exit interview with their advisor and submit a copy of their senior design report before graduating.
