The bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering is a four-year integrated engineering sequence, stressing engineering design and project work, much of which is interdisciplinary and involves constructive teamwork. All electrical engineering students are required to choose an area of specialization, giving the discipline more depth, or complementing it, according to the student’s individual interests. The area of specialization can be fulfilled through the student’s choice of technical electives.

  • Communications Systems and Digital Signal Processing
  • Robotics
  • Electronics, Photonics, and Microsystems
  • Power and Energy
  • Individualized Option

Graduates with a BS in electrical engineering will be able to design, develop, test and supervise the manufacturing of electrical equipment, including electric motors, radar and navigation systems, communications systems and power generation equipment. The BS in electrical engineering requires a minimum of 202 credits, comprised of DU common curriculum, required degree courses and technical electives.

I'm really happy with the education that I've gotten here. I'm happy with the choices I've been able to make here and the opportunities that they've led me to.
