Undergraduate Program in Electrical Engineering
The department offers a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) degree. Lectures are augmented with ample laboratories and design experiences. In addition, internship opportunities frequently exist with local engineering companies, including TVA. Outside of the classroom, UTC's proximity to multiple power generation facilities is leveraged for student tours
Program Educational Objectives
OBJECTIVE 1: Graduates will take their place as competent practitioners of electrical engineering, displaying the modern skills and knowledge of theoretical and practical engineering, including social and communication skills
OBJECTIVE 2: Graduates will be active in professional societies, and will be progressing towards professional registration.
OBJECTIVE 3: Graduates will pursue continuing education and/or graduate studies, and will be proactive in mentoring novice or prospective engineers.
OBJECTIVE 4: Graduates will take responsibility for their work’s effect on their domestic and global environment, including safety, social and economic factors.
OBJECTIVE 5: Graduates will function effectively independently or in multi-disciplinary environments.
The program outcomes of the undergraduate curriculum mirror the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) criteria for accrediting engineering programs. Prior to graduation, each graduate of UTC’s electrical engineering program will demonstrate:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering,
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data,
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability,
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams,
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems,
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility,
- An ability to communicate effectively,
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context,
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning,
- A knowledge of contemporary issues,
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
