BSE in electrical engineering

The goal of the electrical engineering undergraduate program is to prepare graduates for positions as electrical engineers. Following initial coursework in mathematics and sciences, the foundation classes build a solid base of engineering knowledge. The electrical engineering curriculum includes a number of required upper-division electrical engineering and technical elective courses in such areas as:

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

Approved technical elective courses provide students with an opportunity either to broaden their background in electrical engineering or to study, in greater depth, technical subjects in which they have special interest. To learn more, 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.

  • Additional Program Fee: Yes
  • Second Language Requirement: No

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.
