B.S. in Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering

The electrical engineering program at St. Mary's University is best known for its high academic standards and innovative student projects. Every engineering senior completes a year-long design project, some of which have even been patented. The curriculum emphasizes new research findings and industry advances, including computer-aided design tools.

Students become well-versed in science and mathematics; current and relevant technical knowledge; extensive, practical hands-on experience in laboratories; and the opportunity to participate in faculty research projects.

Unique facilities available to electrical engineering students include an electrical engineering laboratory accessible 24-hours a day; an energy conversion laboratory for motors, generators and transformers; a manufacturing and robotics laboratory; and a research laboratory equipped with both UNIX and Windows workstations.

The B.S. in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

All St. Mary’s Core SMC 13XX "Reflection" courses must be completed before registering for SMC 23XX "Practice" courses, unless authorized by student’s adviser.

2

 EG 4363 fulfills SMC 4301 requirement.

3

Grade of “C” or better is required.  International students may be required to take EN 1313 to fulfill this requirement.

4

Engineering students must make a grade of “C” or better in all engineering courses and their prerequisites. One exception applies to the graduating senior who may petition his/her adviser to allow one grade of “D”. Students are not permitted to take an engineering, science, or mathematics course unless all prerequisites are passed with a grade of “C” or better.

This is a recommended degree plan subject to changes. Please meet with your advisor on a regular basis.
