Electrical Engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design and development of electronic devices and systems such as computers, telecommunications and controls. The Electrical Engineering Program offers courses in basic analog and digital circuits, microelectronic systems, electromagnetics, embedded systems, and signal processing. An internship, which gives students engineering work experience, is also part of the program. In the senior year, students complete a two-semester capstone project that integrates their course work. The program prepares graduates to enter engineering industry or pursue advanced studies in the discipline.


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 Electrical
Engineering Program are to produce graduates that are able to:

  • Design and develop electrical 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.

Accreditation

The Weber State University Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
 

Advisement

All Electrical Engineering students are required to meet with their faculty advisor at least annually for course and program advisement.  Please call the department secretary at 801-626-6898 for the name of your advisor and to schedule an appointment.  Individual student records are accessible through the WSU Home Page.
 

Admission Requirements

See the faculty advisor or department secretary to declare your program of study (major).
