online Bachelor of Science for Electrical Engineers

In the online BSEE program, you'll get both online-classroom instruction and hands-on lab experience to help prepare you to excel as an electrical engineer. Courses include foundations in math, computer science, and physical sciences and cover a broad range of topics, such as:

  • Essential elements in analog circuit design
  • Fundamentals of circuit analysis—Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's law, superposition, etc.
  • International System of Units
  • Digital and logic circuit analysis and design in 6 main parts
  • Energy conversion and transport
  • Electromagnetic field theory
  • Passive microwave circuit analysis and design
  • Radar and RF signal propagation, transmission, and reception

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 4% job growth by 2022 for electrical and electronics engineers due to the engineer's versatility in developing and applying emerging technologies. Because this program fills a market-driven educational need, a BSEE provides a solid foundation for those seeking a career in industries ranging from aerospace, telecommunications, and defense to automotive, medical, construction, and chemical engineering.

Important Notes

  • As an engineering student, you will be participating in hands-on, at-home lab exercises, which require you to purchase additional course materials. The estimated total cost of these materials is approximately $8,000, and is NOT covered by our university undergraduate book grant.
  • The technology fee for engineering courses (ENGR and ELEN) is $100/course. Therefore, the estimated total technology fees for this program are $2,950, depending on the concentration you choose. (Note: technology fees are covered by grants for U.S. active-duty military servicemembers, and for Guard and Reserve personnel when using military tuition assistance.)
