Electrical Engineering Program (BSEE)

Mission of the Program

Electrical and electronic components, devices, and equipment are integrated into most of today’s products from biomedical systems to the smart power grid. As a student in the Electrical Engineering program, you will study, model, analyze, and design systems that modern society relies on. The Electrical Engineering program is a four-year project-based curriculum that includes a solid foundation in mathematics, science, engineering principles, as well as the humanities and social sciences. Students are provided with the necessary theory, problem-solving skills, and laboratory exposure to design, build, and test their advanced senior design projects. The program applies Wentworth’s educational model of a state-of-the-art curriculum along with two cooperative work experiences.

The program integrates engineering design throughout the curriculum and an extensive use of computers to solve, and simulate engineering problems as well as control devices, equipment, and systems. Students spend a great deal of time working in a laboratory setting to verify theory. The course of study includes circuit theory, solid state devices, analog and digital circuits and systems, feedback and controls, motors, power distribution systems, signal processing, and communication systems. The curriculum employs the latest technologies so that students are well prepared for graduate study or a professional career in industry.  As a graduate you will be ready for professional careers in fields such as analog and digital systems, acoustics, biomedical devices, computers, electric vehicle supplies, robotics, communication and control systems, sources of alternative energy, power distribution and smart grids.
