Overview of BSEE program Mani V. Venkatasubramanian
2 BS in Electrical Engineering Total of 128 credit hours Four year program with 32 credit hours for each year Electrical Engineering – 47 credit hours Technical Electives – 15 credit hours Computer Science – 3 credit hours Mathematics and basic sciences – 33 credit hours General Education Requirement (GER) – 24 credit hours General Engineering – 6 credit hours
3 Engineering Design Component More than 15.5 credit hours of design component in BSEE curriculum Senior design classes, EE 415 and EE 416 – 4 credit hours of design CptE courses, EE 214 and EE 234 – 4 credit hours of design EE core courses, EE 311, EE 341, EE 351, EE 352, EE 361, EE 362, and EE 489 –7.5 credit hours of design Tech Electives – Additional design exposure
4 Laboratory Experience Total of 7 lab credit hours EE 262 Electrical Circuits Lab – 1 lab credit hour EE 352 Electrical Engineering Lab. I – 2 lab credit hours EE 362 Power Systems Lab. I – 2 lab credit hours EE 214 Logic Circuits and EE 234 Microprocessor Systems – 2 lab credit hours Additional lab. Components in EE technical electives
5 Programming Experience More than 5 credit hours CptS 251 C Programming – 3 credit hours EE 221 Funda. of Numerical Computing – 2 credit hours (Matlab based) EE 214, EE 234, EE lab courses, possibly EE 416 and possibly EE Tech. Electives
6 Recent BSEE Curriculum Changes Programming requirements changed: Previous: CS 121 Programming design (4 credits) and CS 122 Data Structures (4 credits) New: CS 251 C Programming (3 credits) and EE 221 Numerical Computing (Matlab) (2 credits) Probability course changed from Stat 443 to either of Stat 360 or Stat 443. Special EE Tech. Elective (any one of 4) required. All four EE Tech. Electives include Probability application to address ABET concerns. Two of remaining 4 Tech. Electives must be EE courses. Two others can be any among approved electives.
7 EE/CptE Senior Design projects Fall 2006, 8 team projects, all had industry sponsors Spring 2007, 6 team projects, 4 had industry sponsors, 2 WSU sponsored Sponsors: Digilent, Linear Technology, PNNL, Tacoma Power, Comtech AHA Corporation, SEL, NASA, ClearEdge Power Inc.
8 EE/CptE Senior Design examples Noise reduction and chaotic signals in aircraft communications, PNNL Fault data retrieval for the GE D25, Tacoma Power Solar powered diagnostic lab in Africa, WSU Engineers without borders Network algorithm implementation for space exploration, NASA Design of 6 kW power control system for fuel cells, ClearEdge Power Inc.
