Electrical & Computer Engineering


Bachelor of Science

Electrical and Computer Engineering Undergraduate Program

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering provides its students the opportunity to apply mathematical and physical concepts to engineering problems early in the curriculum, through laboratory and design experiences. The Department has been following the philosophy of design across the curriculum for some time. In addition to the strong design experience integrated throughout the required courses, the electives offer students the opportunity to enhance their skills with additional open-ended problem solving. These problems are broad-based, incorporating knowledge from specialty areas of communications systems, signal processing, smart embedded systems, wireless communications, microwave systems, solid state electronics, controls and automation, power electronics, computer engineering, power, and cyber-security.   The computer engineering and cyber security emphases are special components of the electrical engineering (EE) program, where the Department offers concentrations in these areas within its EE program. This expands and rounds out the program by providing the necessary tools to meet the demands of the information age.

Objective and Outcomes

The Electrical Engineering degree program educational objectives are consistent with those of the School of Engineering.  In striving to develop a program of the highest quality, the program seeks to instill in its students the confidence and competence required to meet the challenges associated with careers in electrical and computer engineering. The primary objective of the EE program is to develop a challenging and adaptive curriculum which continuously fosters excellence, breadth, and depth. Within this framework the Department will produce students that will:

  1. Remain effective in their employment in engineering and other professional career fields.
  2. Facilitate innovation and synthesis of new products and services, as well as improve existing products, in a global context.
  3. Continue to be leaders and contributors in their profession, community and other organizations.
  4. Continue the learning process throughout their careers.
  5. Provide service to their profession and community-at-large.

Learning Outcome

The Electrical Engineering degree program student outcomes serve as specific guidelines and standards of the core knowledge, skills, and abilities that students are expected to achieve by the time of graduation. The outcomes also indicate the minimum standards of achievement for students matriculating through the program.

Students who graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree from our department at Morgan State University will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies

  1. Electrical Engineering - Cyber Security Track Requirements (18 credits)

Notes

IMPORTANT

The prerequisite requirements for all courses will be strictly enforced. Students MUST have the prescribed prerequisites before registering for a course. Prerequisite waivers will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Requirements for the Electrical Engineering major include through preparation in mathematics, physics, and engineering.  Elective courses must include both Electrical and computer Engineering courses and approved courses (i.e. 300 level or above) outside of the department.  Students must earn a grade of “C” or higher in all engineering, physics, mathematics, and approved elective courses.

Note:  Students are required to repeat courses in the major which they did not pass with a “C” or higher.  These are courses beginning in EEGR, CEGR, and IEGR.  If you receive a grade lower than “C” in an elective course in the major, you have the following options:  (1) Retake the course and pass with a grade of “C” or higher  (2) Substitute an equivalent course and pass with a grade of “C” or higher.  You will have only one (1) opportunity to substitute an equivalent course for a course in which  you have previously received a grade lower than a “C” or higher.
