The mission of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering is to offer undergraduate and graduate programs of excellence in engineering that serve the needs of the West Florida region, the state, and the nation. The goal of these programs is to prepare students for a successful professional career in their respective chosen discipline of study. All programs shall be revised continuously to improve quality and respond to current workforce needs.

The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.  ABET is the recognized accreditor for college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering and technology and is among the most respected accreditation organizations in the United States.

The program’s educational objectives are to ensure:

  • Graduates of the program will be successful in the professional practice of engineering or related fields and will advance in their chosen careers.
  • Graduates of the program will be successful in pursuing advanced degrees in engineering or related fields. 

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 our 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 and science courses.  In addition, a "C" grade is required in the Electrical Engineering core courses as well as all engineering courses that serve as prerequisites to EGN, EGM, EML, EEL, and EEE prefixed courses and labs.  See below for a list of all courses that require a minimum grade of a "C-" or 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 on the Institutional Effectiveness website.

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