Electrical Engineering is the largest technical profession, intersecting nearly every aspect of modern life.  Today’s electrical engineers must be able to find solutions to complex new technical problems, communicate well, and work as a part of a team.  Electrical and Computer Engineering students in the College of Engineering at Boise State University receive a broad education which ensures they have technical depth along with a well-rounded education, equipping graduates to compete and lead in the global community of the 21st century.

The bachelor of science in electrical engineering (BSEE) requires foundational topics including:

  • circuit analysis, design, and testing
  • signals and transforms
  • semiconductor devices
  • microelectronic circuit and digital system design
  • microprocessors and embedded systems
  • electromagnetics and electromechanical systems
  • communications and control

Our curriculum emphasizes basic theory to ensure students gain a solid technical foundation, and then build students’ skills through practical experience.  As a result, every student in the department has an opportunity to map out a unique program suited to her/his background, interests, and goals.
