The 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 will 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.

The major strengths of this program lie in its faculty, the basic philosophy on which the curriculum is built, and the outstanding laboratory facilities in the engineering building. The curriculum is based on providing a sound engineering background with small class sizes. 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.

Mission:

The mission of the Bachelor Science degree program in Electrical & Electronic Engineering (BSEEE) at CSUS is to provide an outstanding, hands-on education in Electrical Engineering.

Goals:

The goal of the EEE Program is to provide students with a 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.

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 have the following:

  1. Core Knowledge: Our graduates will have careers in Electrical and Electronic engineering, or be engaged in a related career path.
  2. Application of Knowledge: Our graduates will apply their knowledge and skills to solve practical engineering problems.
  3. Life-long Learning: Our graduates will continue to develop their skills and seek knowledge after graduation in order to adapt to advancing technology and the needs of society. This may be indicated by the graduate's pursuit of an advanced degree or other formal instruction, and/or that the graduate has developed a professional specialty.
  4. Professionalism: Our graduates will have the necessary professional skills, such as high ethical standards, effective oral and written communications, and teamwor, to be productive engineers and to advance their careers.

The objectives describe the features that are considered important in an outstanding education in Electrical Engineering.

The program educational objectives are consistent with the University Mission, which can be summarized in the following two quotes from the University Policy Manual: "The University’s mission is guided by fundamental values which reflect its identity as a public, regional, comprehensive, metropolitan university. Thus, California State University, Sacramento seeks to offer individuals the opportunity to realize their highest aspirations and become active and involved citizens for the good of the individual and society," and "We reaffirm the value of and need for education of the whole person in the tradition of a liberal undergradABET Accredited logouate education. Building on the fundamental knowledge and skills acquired through a general education program, the University offers traditional liberal arts disciplines and professional studies which emphasize three critical curricular values - acquisition of knowledge, the development of critical thought processes, and the synthesis of knowledge - hallmarks of an educated person."

By preparing students to succeed in professional employment and/or graduate study in electrical engineering, the program offers individuals "the opportunity to realize their highest aspirations." By preparing students to identify, analyze, and solve practical engineering problems, the program emphasizes "the development of a critical thought process" and by preparing students to apply knowledge of Circuits, Communications, Control Systems, Microprocessors, Electromagnetics, and Power Systems to the design of electrical engineering projects, the program emphasizes "the acquisition and synthesis of knowledge." Finally, by preparing students to communicate effectively with their peers, other professionals, decision makers, and the general public in the conduct of their work, and to practice electrical engineering in a professionally responsible and ethical manner, the program enables graduates to "become active and involved citizens for the good of the individual and society."

The program educational objectives are also consistent with ABET educational criteria. The objectives provide for educating students to be able to conduct electrical engineering work (analysis and design) in a professionally responsible and ethical manner, and to be able to communicate the results of their work to all stakeholders.

Student Learning Outcomes:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. An ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
