A student needs to complete general courses and general education electives within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.0 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses). However, to complete the program within four years, a credit load of 15 to 18 is recommended.

The electrical engineering program is designed to prepare students to design and improve electrical, electronic and computer systems. The program combines practical exposure to the most modern technologies available with a theoretical foundation that empowers students to master future changes and innovations.

 

Pre-EE Requirements - 15 Credits
Core EE Requirements - 60 Credits
General Education Requirements - 39 Credits
Concentration Electives - 15 Credits

Students can select the following area of concentration:

  • Computer Engineering/Digital Systems
  • Electric Power and Energy Systems
  • Manufacturing

NTU's Electrical Engineering program is accreditated by ABET from October 1, 2015 until September 30, 2024. View accreditation information

 

ABET Program Educational Objectives
Our Electrical Engineering alumni will show that they meet expectations by performing within one or more of these parameters in five to seven years after graduation.

  1. Show progress in their career through greater supervisory tasks advancing to larger managerial responsibilty or increasing technical accountability.
  2. Acquire professional engineer's license, other certifications of expertise in technical areas or attend graduate school in an appropriate technical discipline.
  3. Demonstrate success by continuing employment and/or technical accomplishments as entrepreneurs, civil servants or in commercial or industrial endeavors.

 

Student Outcomes
The outcomes of the Electrical Engineering undergraduate program are to educate students who will have to:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

 

The program currently has three concentrations:

  • Computer Engineering / Digital Systems
  • Electrical Power and Energy Systems
  • Mnaufacturing

Additional concentrations can be added to the program as world needs and student interest evolve.
