Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science invites you to explore the program leading to B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

Electrical engineering (EE) is one of the fastest growing disciplines in science and engineering disciplines. Modern electrical engineering has shown strong combination of traditional electrical engineering with computer engineering in both computer hardware and software, resulting in many positions opening to electrical engineers. Electrical engineering graduates usually command higher starting salaries. Some of the more common of these are: artificial intelligence, communication engineers, computer engineers, computer vision, control engineers, power engineers, instrumentation engineers, and robotics.

The objectives of the undergraduate EE program are :

  • To prepare our graduates for careers as engineering professionals and/or for graduate studies.
  • To enable our graduates to pursue state-of-the-art solutions to engineering problems and to evaluate and embrace new technologies
  • To instill in our graduates personal commitment to high ethical standards, sound business decisions, and engineering excellence.

The undergraduate electrical engineering program offers two degree emphasis areas, electrical systems and computer engineering. The electrical systems option emphasizes theory and design of hardware aspects of electrical systems in communications, controls and computers. The computer engineering option includes the hardware aspects of computer design and emphasizes software engineering. 

The Electrical Engineering Program Student Outcomes are:

Our students have

  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.
