BS in Electrical Engineering for Vets
The B.S. in Electrical Engineering combines studies in physics, mathematics, science, electricity and electronics to prepare students to solve real-world problems in electrical engineering. The curriculum allow students to first establish a solid foundation in mathematics and sciences, and then introduces them to a broad spectrum of electrical engineering course work.
What will I study?
Digital Circuit Design:
Learn to use the powerful digital circuit design tools that make today's advanced technology possible. With RTL-Register Transfer Level design, and other methods, you can capture the desired behavior of a processor, describe it in a HDL-Hardware Description Language and then convert it to a digital circuit.
Electric and Electronic Circuits:
Circuit theory forms the basis for all further study in electrical engineering. Learn how to use ideal basic circuit elements as the fundamental building blocks to design microelectronic systems such as cell phones, amplifiers, oscillators, filters and transceivers. The emphasis is always on developing a systematic approach for creating new engineering solutions.
Your study of digital circuits continues with a top-down exploration of computing and embedded systems. Both high- and low-level programming languages as well as hardware design language principles are more fully developed. Study in this area concludes with a two-course sequence specifically focused on design considerations for increasing complex systems.
Digital Signal Processing and Communications:
Learn mathematical modeling of discrete and continuous signals and associated systems as a foundation to further study in digital signal processing and communication systems. With this strong theoretical background you are prepared to explore the realm of modern digital systems, such as cell phones, high definition video and media.
Power and Energy Systems:
After course work in how electrical energy gets generated, transmitted and distributed, you will be ready to help deploy the new smart grid. Learn how to integrate alternative power sources, manage power flow, maximize transmission efficiency, and create a feedback system through bi-directional metering and power-line networking.
Your knowledge of circuits, embedded systems and microelectronics design coupled with control systems theory, allows you to create powerful controllers that regulate the function of many different kinds of machinery, and everyday appliances.
