This page is specifically for the Electrical Engineering satellite program at North Seattle Community College. For information about the Electrical Engineering program at the main campus in Cheney, please click here. 


Eastern Washington University and North Seattle Community College are proud to announce the expansion of our productive partnership! We are  announcing the addition of Dr. Arndam Das to our faculty on the North Seattle campus. Dr. Das brings extensive academic and industry experience to our program. His unique combination of talents will benefit our students earning a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering through Eastern Washington University on the North Seattle Community College campus.

The program is ABET accredited and adheres to the same rigorous standards required of all ABET accredited electrical engineering programs. It requires a minimum of 180 quarter credit hours to complete. The degree combines studies in selected areas of physics, math, electronics, electricity, and science to prepare students to solve real world problems in electrical engineering. The first two years of the curriculum allow students to establish a solid foundation in mathematics and science, and to work on their general education requirements. The third year introduces students to a broad spectrum of electrical engineering coursework with specialization and capstone introduced in the fourth year.

The coursework is taught by faculty members from both EWU and NSCC through a series of distance education and regular classroom courses that include hands-on laboratories at the North Seattle campus. The addition of a new faculty member for fall of 2012 means more classes will be taught exclusively at the NSCC campus.

To qualify for the program students must apply to both Eastern Washington University and North Seattle Community College. Acceptance to the major is automatic once students have been accepted to both schools and have signed a major declaration card. Graduation requirements include achievement of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average in departmental coursework, a 2.0 cumulative GPA for EWU coursework, and a 2.0 cumulative GPA in the general education requirements.

The electrical engineering series of courses begins once each year in the fall, and students must have completed a year-long (either quarter or semester based) calculus based physics series as well as one year of calculus to begin the sequence of electrical engineering courses.
