Electrical Engineering Bachelor of Science
Leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Electrical engineers study, model, analyze, and design the electrical and electronic systems on which modern society relies. The curriculum includes a solid foundation in mathematics, science, and engineering principles. Students in this program take courses in analog and digital circuit design, electronics, electromagnetics, signal processing, communications, power systems, control systems, embedded computer systems, and engineering design. The curriculum incorporates both theory and practice in a learning environment that emphasizes hands-on experience and teamwork. Our graduates are well prepared for pursuing both an advanced degree and a professional career.
Program Educational Objectives
Graduates of the electrical engineering program will (within a few years of graduation):
- Lifelong learning—Pursue professional development to meet and adapt to the emerging and evolving technology.
- Successful Careers—Enjoy a successful career in the field of electrical engineering or related fields.
- Professionalism—Graduates will contribute to their fields or professions.
Students from the electrical engineering program will attain (by the time of graduation):
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- 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.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Total credits for degree: 127
This is a four-year program, starting in the fall semester of the student’s first year and planned to end in the summer semester of the student’s fourth year.
Special Requirement for Graduation
In addition to the general graduation requirements of the University, specific graduation requirements from the Electrical Engineering (BSEE) program with a Bachelor of Science degree include maintaining a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for all technical courses. The courses used to determine the cumulative grade point average for all BSEE technical courses are courses with ELEC and ENGR prefixes. If another Wentworth course is substituted for one of these listed courses, the substitute course will be calculated into this cumulative grade point average for all technical courses.

Students are required to complete:
- At least one course in Humanities: HSSI, HIST, HUMN, LITR and PHIL
- At least one course in the Social Sciences: HSSI, COMM, ECON, POLS, PSYC and SOCL
- The remaining course from either the Humanities or Social Sciences category.
Students with a three English course sequence may use the third English course to satisfy a Humanities requirement.
A minimum of 20 credits total, including English, humanities, and social science credit, is required to complete the humanities and social sciences graduation requirement.
