A BSEE degree is comprised of 128 credit hours and can be earned in four years. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

A reduced selection of freshman, sophomore, and junior courses is offered during the summer. Cooperative education is encouraged, though it extends the course of study. General education courses are required by the university. UTC has course transfer agreements with many regional community college, as indicated in the Transfer Equivalency Charts.

The table below presents a typical schedule. A description of each course can be found in the Undergraduate Course Catalog. The table indicates the prerequisites for each required course in the curriculum. A 'c' after the code (as in M1c) indicates that the listed course is a corequisite. A course with a code displayed in inverse print, such as CHEM 1110, indicates that the course is generally offered in both fall and spring semesters. Clicking on a course number brings up the course listings for the upcoming semester while clicking on the course title returns the catalog description. A list of all currently offered courses for spring, 2013, is available here.
