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 (BSEE) program defines the characteristics of most of its graduates about 4 -6 years after graduation and are listed below:

  • Graduates will be engaged in multidisciplinary activities and achievements that demonstrate continuous learning, technology advancement, and/or professional development in electrical and computer engineering related industries and/or advanced degrees. 
  • Graduates will obtain recognition of their electrical engineering competency and leadership by career advancement (promotion), awards, education, and/or engagement in community and professional societies.

Student Outcomes

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

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. 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.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

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
