The Department of Electrical Engineering offers programs leading to the degrees: Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (B.S.E.C.E.T.) and Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.).
The B.S.E.C.E.T. curriculum offers students an in-depth foundation in electrical and computer engineering technology from the ground up by an interdisciplinary team of Wright State University faculty.
This program prepares students for careers in a variety of fields, including for example: automated manufacturing; electronics instrumentation, testing, and quality control; electronic/electrical product development and design; software development and design; computer network and system development, design, sustainment; field service engineering; and systems engineering.
The program’s coursework focuses on foundational electrical and computer engineering topics to prepare students for real-world problem solving and design of electronic, computer, and software systems through a comprehensive curriculum of modern electrical & computer engineering design skills.
This program uniquely blends coursework from multiple fields of math, science, engineering and computer science using pedagogical best practices focused on engaging students in their learning, such that they are actively involved in understanding engineering concepts and ideas, and fostering scientific creativity and critical thinking.
- Objective 1: Will be professionally employed in a technical or supervisory position or pursuing advanced training.
- Objective 2: Will be actively involved in professional development activities.
- Objective 3: Will be leading or participating as a member of project teams.
- Objective 4: Will be developing expertise in a specialized area, such as through the pursuit of technical certifications, or broadening their base of knowledge.
Admission to Wright State University
Domestic high school students will be granted admission to Wright State University upon fulfilling one of the following options:
- Complete the Ohio Core curriculum (or equivalent curriculum),
- Achieve a minimum cumulative high school grade point average of 2.0, and
- Achieve an ACT composite score of 15 or SAT score of 740 (combined critical reading and math)
- Complete the Ohio Core curriculum (or equivalent curriculum),,
- Achieve a minimum cumulative high school grade point average of 2.5, and
- Submit any ACT/SAT score
Admission to BSECET full major
Students are admitted as BSECET pre-majors and must complete 24 or more semester hours of college-level coursework with a 2.25 GPA or higher, must complete ENG 1100 (or any WSU Core First-Year Writing Course) with a C or higher, and must complete the following courses with a C or higher: 3 hours of computer programming from (CEG 2170 and CEG 2170L or CS 1160 and CS 1160L or CS 1180 and CS 1180L) and (EE2000 and EE2000L ).
Once students are admitted as BSECET full majors they may enroll in upper-level courses in electrical and computer engineering (typically 3000-level and above).
Program Learning Outcomes:
The B.S. in Electrical & Computer Engineering Technology prepares students for real-world problem solving and design of electronic, computer, and software systems through a comprehensive curriculum of modern electrical & computer engineering design skills.
Undergraduate Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Program Learning Goals
The goal of the program is to train students in modern electrical and computer engineering design skills, with the objective of post-graduation employment in a related field. This will be achieved through attainment of the following student outcomes, as specified by the ABET Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission. Each of these outcomes is addressed in one or more curricular requirements of the program.
Undergraduate Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Program Core Skills
- an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
- an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
