Overview

The electrical engineering program at the Ohio University offers two curriculum tracks leading to a B.S.E.E. degree. The electrical engineering (EE) track is intended for students who want to work in one of the many areas of electrical engineering. An Electrical Engineering with Computer Engineering Track (CpE) track is available for students who intend to work in the area of computers. Students who are undecided as to which area they want to pursue should follow the electrical engineering track until they decide.

Key facts:

The electrical engineering program has three major objectives for its undergraduate students (Program Educational objectives are statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during the first few years after graduation):

  • Depth and Breadth: Produce graduates that will have the theoretical, practical, and professional knowledge necessary to be productive upon entering the workforce or successful in advanced study;
  • Staying Current: Produce graduates that will maintain and develop the knowledge and the skills needed to identify, formulate, and solve problems throughout their career; and
  • Professionalism: Produce graduates that exhibit an understanding of the necessity for professional integrity, ethical behavior, and multicultural awareness.

All electrical engineering students must fulfill the University's General Education requirements. Students will select elective courses in conjunction with their advisors. To develop the general knowledge and skills necessary to support the study and practice of engineering, students will take a number of courses in mathematics and basic sciences. The purpose of the five general engineering courses is to give students an understanding of engineering fundamentals outside of electrical engineering.

The electrical engineering portion of the curriculum consists of several blocks of courses. The introductory block is intended to promote the students interested in electrical engineering, while introducing physical and logical concepts necessary for future studies. The goal of the foundations block is to develop the fundamental knowledge and analytical skills necessary for the study and practice of electrical engineering. The intermediate breadth block prepares the student to study the various areas of electrical engineering and computer engineering at the advanced level. EECS electives allow students to develop specialized knowledge and skills in one of the areas of electrical and computer engineering or explore other topics at the advanced level.

Because the ability to solve problems is critical for engineers, students will develop engineering design skills as they progress through the curriculum. Engineering design is addressed in most EE courses. In the intermediate design block, students will develop experience in experimental design and analysis. The design experience culminates in the senior year with the capstone design sequence of courses, where students complete a design project that simulates work found in professional practice.

English Language Requirements

  • Minimum required score:

    68

    The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120.

  • Minimum required score:

    6

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

  • Minimum required score:

    520

    The TOEFL®PBT is administered in a paper format and measures your ability to use and understand English in a classroom setting at the college or university level. It accurately measures how well you can listen, read and write in English while performing academic tasks.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 2

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 2 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
