The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) program focuses on the theories, practices, competencies, tools, and technologies associated with electrical engineering. You will get both online classroom instruction and hands-on lab experience to help prepare you to excel as an electrical engineer. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 4% job growth by 2022 for electrical and electronics engineers due to the engineer’s versatility in developing and applying emerging technologies. Because this program fills a market-driven educational need, earning your BSEE could give you a step up in starting a career in aerospace, telecommunications, defense, automotive, medical, construction, chemical, and more.
