Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Major: EE

Degree: BEE

Unit: Speed School of Engineering (SS)

Department: Electrical & Computer Engineering

Students specializing in Electrical Engineering will complete a program consisting of two semesters in Engineering
Fundamentals and a further period of study in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering - ten semesters in
Departmental Studies to complete the Bachelor of Science degree, followed by a fifth year in Graduate Studies for the Master
of Engineering degree. This curriculum is designed as an integrated five-year program, with a cooperative education
component, culminating in the Master of Engineering degree. The Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering programs
are both accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc.

1
Acceptance into a Department requires that a student have a 2.0 GPA in the prescribed set of courses totaling 31 semester hours in
Engineering Fundamentals. In addition, the student must be in good standing with the university (university GPA ≥ 2.0).
2
This course is a General Education requirement for the program; see http://www.louisville.edu/provost/GER/ for the listing, by
academic year, of Arts/CD/Hum/SBS Electives which satisfy the University-wide General Education requirements. Note that the
12-hour total for the Arts/CD/HUM/SBS electives assumes the use of double counting of CD with another category. The
Department recommends COMM 112 over COMM 111.
3
Students completing ENGL 105 in lieu of ENGL 101 and ENGL 102 satisfy the General Education and Engineering Fundamentals
requirements for Written Communication. However, an additional 3-hr Writing (WR) course or honors Written Communication
(WC) course is needed to satisfy program credit hour requirements. A current list of acceptable WR and WC courses is at
http://louisville.edu/speed/academics/advising/ENGL105.html. ENGL 303 (Technical Writing) or ENGL 306 (Business Writing) is
recommended as the additional course for EE students.
4
These electives must be chosen from the lists of approved courses available in the Department and online at
https://louisville.edu/speed/electrical/students/application-information/bsee-program-information/ece_electives.pdf.
5
Students must take 3 hours of CECS/Mathematics/Science Electives and 3 hours of Engineering Science Electives. An additional 3
hours of electives must be taken from either category. Some students may wish to use these electives toward satisfying the
requirements for a minor in Mathematics or Physics; additional information is available in the Department.
6
Candidates for the Bachelor of Science degree must be in Good Standing (university GPA ≥ 2.00) and must attain a grade point
average of at least 2.00 for all courses used to satisfy degree requirements.
