Electrical engineering (electric power and energy systems), BSE

As a student in the electrical engineering BSE degree program in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, you will spend your time preparing for a position as an electrical engineer after graduation. This preparation includes advanced courses taught by award-winning faculty, research experience in our nationally ranked laboratories and facilities, internship opportunities and networking through student organizations, engineering events and industry connections.

Upon applying to ECEE, you will select a field of focus within the electrical engineering BSE, which will allow you to focus your education on your particular field of interest. These fields include:

  • Mixed Signal Circuit Design
  • Signal Processing and Communication
  • Control Systems
  • Electromagnetics, Antennas, and Wireless Communication
  • Electric Power and Energy Systems
  • Physical Electronics and Photonics

To learn more about these fields and the application of these focuses, contact your academic advisor.

Along with your initial coursework in mathematics and sciences, you will take our foundation classes at the start of your degree that will help you explore engineering through hands-on projects and activities. You will work together with your peers to examine real issues facing society, and you will learn to develop solutions to those problems.

We offer technical elective courses that provide you with an opportunity either to broaden you background in electrical engineering or to study, in greater depth, technical subjects in which you have special interest.


  • Additional Program Fee: Yes
  • Second Language Requirement: No
  • First Required Math Course: MAT 265 – Calculus for Engineers I.

Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Electric power and energy systems concentration

The goal of the electric power and energy systems concentration is to prepare you for positions in industries dealing with generation, transmission and utilization of electric power. Generation includes conventional power generation (fossil fuel and nuclear) and alternative energy systems, including solar, wind and fuel cells.

In this concentration, you will complete the foundation courses in math, science and engineering. You are then required to take the pathway course in electric power and complete nine of the 15 technical elective credit hours with power classes. In addition, you senior design capstone project should be in the area of electric power and energy systems.

Financial Aid
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.

Professional licensure

ASU academic programs are designed to prepare students to apply for applicable licensure or certification in Arizona. Completion of an ASU program may not meet education requirements for license or certification in another state.

ASU makes every effort to ensure information about educational requirements for licensure or certification information is current; however, state requirements may change. Separate from educational requirements, state licensure boards may require applicants to complete professional examinations, background checks, years of professional experience, jurisprudence exams, etc. If you are planning to pursue professional licensure or certification in a state other than Arizona, it is strongly recommended that you visit the ASU Professional Licensure website for contact information of the appropriate licensing entity to seek information and guidance regarding licensure or certification requirements.
