Electric Power & Energy Systems Concentration, Electrical Engineering (BSE)
The goal of the electric power and energy systems concentration is to prepare graduates for positions in industries dealing with generation, transmission and utilization of electric power. Generation includes conventional power generation (fossil fuel and nuclear) and alternative energy systems, including solar, wind and fuel cells. Students in this program will complete the foundation courses in math, science and engineering. They are then required to take the pathway course in electric power and complete nine of the 15 technical elective credit hours with power classes. In addition, the senior design capstone project should be in the area of electric power and energy systems.
