Undergraduate Curriculum

Bachelor of Science (B.S.E.E.)

The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, commensurate with the mission of the University and the College of Engineering, is to provide quality Electrical Engineering, Computer and Information Systems Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering education, pursue basic and applied research (inquiry) in selected and focused critical areas, and to engage in service to its constituents.

The program in electrical engineering systematically builds upon the knowledge acquired in basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering sciences to provide the students a broad base in various areas of electrical engineering. The department also offers a concentration in computer engineering under the B.S.E.E. degree. The program offers courses in electrical circuits, linear systems, computer programming, electromagnetic theory, control systems, energy conversion, power systems, electromagnetic theory, communication systems, digital logic design, software engineering, computer structures and microprocessors. The students may further specialize in one among the areas of control systems, communication systems, power systems, or computer engineering through a choice of technical electives.

Program Educational Objectives

The goal of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Tennessee State University is to offer a high quality, broad-based program in electrical engineering, complemented by basic and applied research and public service to prepare its graduates for starting positions in industry, government and/or pursue graduate study in related fields. The Program Educational Objectives (PEO) of the Electrical Engineering (EE) program are:

  • To provide the student with the knowledge of natural sciences, mathematics, engineering, and computer science so that the student has the capability to systematically delineate and solve electrical and related engineering problems.
  • To provide the student with a broad-based background in electrical engineering with experiences in the design, development and analysis of electrical and computer systems, subsystems and components.
  • To provide students with an engineering education to function as educated members of a global society, with awareness of the contemporary issues, professional responsibilities, ethics, impact of technology on society, and the need for life long learning.
  • To provide the student with skills to function as members of multidisciplinary teams, and to communicate effectively using available modern tools. 

Student Outcomes

The outcomes of the program require that the graduating student demonstrate the following:

  • an ability to systematically apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering sciences to solve problems
  • an ability to plan, design, and conduct engineering experiments as well as to analyze and interpret data and report results
  • an ability to systematically identify, formulate, design and demonstrate electrical engineering systems, subsystems, components and/or processes that meet desired performance, cost, time and safety requirements
  • an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • an ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering and electrical engineering problems
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • an ability to communicate technical information through professional quality reports, oral presentations and interaction with audience
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of electrical engineering solutions in a global 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 modern techniques, skills and tools including computer based tools for analysis and design

 

The B.S. degree program in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC of ABET).  http://www.abet.org
