Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Admission Requirements

To be admitted to the electrical engineering major:

  1. Satisfy the Application and Admission Requirements for Baccalaureate Programs and 
  2. Complete the high school preparation courses with grades of C or better.

Academic Requirements

All prerequisites for engineering courses must be completed with a grade of C or higher, and all courses listed in the major requirements must be completed with a grade of C or higher. A student who is unable to earn a grade of C or higher in any course offered by the college may attempt to earn a satisfactory grade one additional time on a space-available basis. Failure to earn a grade of C or higher on the second attempt may result in removal from the program. Re-admittance requires a letter of appeal from the student requesting re-admittance with an explanation of any mitigating factors and how these factors have been addressed. Re-admittance is subject to approval by the department chair of the program.

A student who has a semester GPA below 2.00 in the major requirements will be placed on academic warning by the program. If a student on academic warning status receives a semester GPA of at least 2.00 in the major requirements, that student will be removed from academic warning status by the program. Otherwise, if a student on academic warning status receives a semester GPA below 2.00 in the major requirements, the student will be dropped from the program and must reapply in order to continue in the program.

Academic Integrity

The program requires its students to abide by the principles of academic integrity described in the Student Code of Conduct. Should suspected cases of academic misconduct occur, these cases may be submitted to the UAA Dean of Students Office, where the assistant director of student conduct reviews all allegations of academic misconduct. At the conclusion of the review, the assistant director of student conduct issues a notification of the findings and conclusions to the reporting faculty member, department chair and dean. Should a student from the program be found responsible for a case of academic misconduct by the UAA Dean of Students Office on two separate occasions, that student will be dropped from the program. Re-admittance requires a letter of appeal from the student requesting re-admittance with an explanation of any mitigating factors and how these factors have been addressed. Re-admittance is subject to approval by the department chair of the student’s degree program.

Honors in Electrical Engineering

Undergraduate students in the program may be recognized for exceptional performance by earning departmental honors. The award will be noted on their university transcript. In order to receive departmental honors, a student must meet each of the following requirements.

  1. Complete all program requirements.
  2. Be an active member for at least one year of both a national and an on-campus student chapter of a professional engineering society that addresses issues relevant to the engineering profession.
  3. Earn a GPA of 3.50 or above in the courses required for the major.
  4. Gain approval for, complete and present a design/research project prior to applying for graduation. The project proposal, presentation and final written report must be approved by the program faculty.
