BS - Electrical Engineering

  • Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering & Engineering Technology
    Electrical Engineering Department

    Electrical Engineering, BS

    Program Information:
    Electrical Engineering is arguably the largest discipline of engineering. It focuses on the application of the principles of electricity and its use with electrical devices and systems. In this energy conscious world, a thorough understanding of energy and its uses is essential to the success of an electrical engineer.

    Electrical Engineering requires rigorous training in basic engineering principles along with the development of skills in the areas of planning and management of design projects and the associated systems and resources. Graduates in the area of Electrical Engineering will be required to master technical elements and to demonstrate particular competence in the areas of communication, fiscal management, and project control. The broad-based background is tailored to develop professionals who will be able to move between the technical and managerial aspects of electrical engineering projects and to serve in key leadership positions within the engineering profession.

    Engineering Standing:  The first two years of a program’s curriculum are considered to be lower division while the remaining two years are considered the upper division. For the most part, upper division engineering courses are those with course numbers in the 3000’s and 4000’s. In addition to the stated prerequisites and unless otherwise noted in the catalog, students must apply for and be granted Engineering Standing in order to enroll in any upper division engineering course taught in the College of Engineering.  A 2.70 GPA is required to receive engineering standing in courses outlined by the department.

    This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Electrical Engineering degree requirements and course prerequisites in the <http: catoid="29" "="" kennesaw.catalog.acalog.com="" target="_blank">Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.) 

    Milestones/Notes:

    1. Must earn a grade of "C" or better in coursework.
    2. Not all courses are offered every semester.
    3. See KSU online Catalog or departmental website for pre-requisite(s) or course descriptions.

Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggest to prevent delays in program completion.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
