Bachelors of Science Electrical Engineering
San Diego State University B.S. program in Electrical Engineering offers core courses in each of the major areas of electrical engineering: machines for processing and communication of information, the generation and distribution of electric power, and the study and application of electromagnetic phenomena.
Mastery of engineering design is emphasized through work on open-ended problems with realistic design constraints. The curriculum attempts to achieve a balance between theory and practice that will prepare graduates for both immediate employment and post-graduate study.
Electrical engineering students will find this program interesting and challenging. First-year courses include calculus, physics, and chemistry. During the second and third years students will take specific courses in the major. Upper-division classes allow students to put theory into practice with courses such as analog and digital circuit design, electronic materials, power systems, and electromagnetics. Each student will select from technical electives such as VLSI design (designing microchips), biomedical instrumentation, microwave transmission, communication systems, digital signal processing, microprocessors, multi-media programming, power systems design and analysis, optical electronics, and computer networks. All students are required to participate in a “Capstone design” course, which emphasizes teamwork, oral and written communication skills and creative thinking.
STEM enabled job opportunities and careers include High Tech sectors such as: Biotechnology, Mobile and communications and Telecommunications technologies, Medical Sciences, Pharmacology, Intelligent transport systems, Space applications, Aerospace, Astronomy mining, Geographic information systems, Remote monitoring and action for food production, Forensic Sciences and criminology, Military and defense systems, etc.
The diversity of STEM fields engulf all aspects of engineering, non-engineering technical side of the finance sector, actuaries and risk assessment, and many other social sciences needing the mathematics and analytical background to analyze big data.
