Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (Electrical Engineering)

Students who do not plan to pursue a career in electrical engineering but who seek a strong foundation in the principles of electrical engineering may choose the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (Electrical Engineering). The program ensures that the student learns the foundations of electrical engineering through breadth requirements. In addition, there is flexibility in selecting upper-level courses to meet the student's individual objectives. This program also may be attractive for students interested in obtaining multiple degrees, because the requirements are less strict than for the BSEE degree. Historically, students have matched a degree in electrical engineering with degrees in other engineering disciplines, in the natural sciences, in music, in history and in business; other combinations are possible. This also may be an attractive option for students planning graduate studies in a variety of disciplines, including medicine, law or business. This applied science degree is not accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The degree requirements include the residency and general requirements of the university and the McKelvey School of Engineering as well as the following:
