Last day to add courses for Spring 2014 is Friday, February 7th  -  University Census Date

The mission of the Electrical & Electronic Engineering Department at CSUS is to provide high quality education that will transform students into professional engineers who are prepared to meet the needs of society and adapt to rapidly changing technology.

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering offers degrees in combined Electrical and Electronic Engineering B.S. degree as well as Computer Engineering degree accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accrediation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). Electrical engineering is the study of electric power distribuition, motors and generators. Electronic engineering is the study of robotics, communications, circuits, electromagnetic fields and digital and analog hardware.

Students receive a thorough grounding in mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science and engineering science during their first four semesters. Engineering design and applications are stressed in upper division courses. Prospective students are urged to discuss their plans as early as possible with their high school or community college counselor. The EEE Department office is available for individual advising and encourages all students, both prospective and enrolled to contact us.

The EEE Program Educational Objectives

The undergraduate program in Electrical & Electronic Engineering is fundamental to the mission of the College of Engineering and Computer Science at CSUS. 5-years from graduation, graduates from our program will:

  1. Obtain a broad education in electrical engineering built upon a solid understanding of mathematics, science, and basic engineering.
  2. Be able to apply fundamental electrical engineering concepts to complex situations and solve problems, using contemporary engineering tools and techniques.
  3. Be able to communicate effectively.
  4. Obtain breadth and depth through required core courses in circuits, electronics, communications, control systems, microprocessors, electromagnetics and electric machines.  Depth is obtained from elective courses consistent with the range of technical specialties.
  5. Be able to work with contemporary laboratory instrumentation, design and perform experiments, and analyze and interpret the results.
  6. Be able to work in teams to solve complex design problems.
  7. Obtain a balanced education with a solid understanding of ethical and professional responsibility, which enables them to function well in the profession of engineering. The program prepares them to be “life-long” learners who are prepared to meet the demands of a rapidly changing technologically advancing society.
  8. Obtain knowledge of the important human factors such as safety, environmental impact, and impact on society. They will be able to apply their skills in new contexts and learn to appreciate and manage intelligently the consequences of their technical decisions.
