The College of Applied Science and Technology at Weber State University now offers a
Bachelor of Science degree in Electronics Engineering. This BS degree requires a total
of 125 credit hours of courses in engineering, mathematics, science and general education.
Graduates of the program will be prepared for employment in various industrial roles such
as design, analysis, research, development and testing. Graduates will also be prepared to
pursue advanced studies in their field.
Program Educational Objectives
Educational objectives are the career and life accomplishments that the program prepares graduates
to achieve within a few years after graduation. The educational objectives of the WSU Electronics
Engineering Program are to produce graduates that are able to:
- Design and develop electronic systems.
- Effectively communicate technical information and participate in a team environment.
- Engage in life-long learning through continuing education and industrial practice.
- Demonstrate professional ethics and social awareness.
Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of
graduation. Graduates of the WSU Electronics Engineering Program will have:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering.
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic
constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety,
manufacturability and sustainability.
- An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
- An ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems.
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- An ability to communicate effectively.
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global,
economic, environmental and societal context.
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning.
- A knowledge of contemporary issues.
- An ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering
Electronics Engineering is a new program at WSU and hence is not yet accredited by ABET. As the
program now has its first graduates from the 2011-2012 academic year, WSU has applied for
accreditation to the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. WSU will be notified by ABET July 2013.
