The undergraduate Electrical Engineering (EE) program for the Bachelor of Science degree is offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCF.
The Undergraduate Catalog is the official source of degree requirements for all undergraduate programs based upon the year you are accepted to UCF.
Electrical Engineering students at UCF have many unique advantages:
- Starting with the 2017 academic year, 4 Track options have been introduced in the EE curriculum. Students will be able to take more elective courses within their area of interest enhancing their academic training and adding to their career potential. Details can be found on the ECE website http://www.ece.ucf.edu/electrical-engineering/#ee-course-requirements.
- The ECE Junior Design course provides an introduction to the design process. Here students will learn about project definition through the development of appropriate engineering design requirements specifications. They will acquire necessary and required skills such as test equipment utilization, micro-controller development tool usage, schematic capture and PCB design tools etc. all through the design and fabrication of a basic ECE project.
- The two semester Senior Design course for EE majors is a dynamic and exciting real-life experience course and is a vehicle for students to demonstrate the engineering skills acquired through their academic study. Senior Design is a centerpiece of the EE undergraduate educational experience.
- All EE students are assigned a qualified academic advisor. Each student should seek academic advisement before registering for classes each semester to ensure that satisfactory academic progress is being maintained and to minimize excess hours.
- The ECE department has outstanding faculty engaged in cutting-edge research through several highly competitive, prestigious research grants that they have been awarded. EE students have an excellent opportunity for pursuing undergraduate research in their area of interest with these faculty.
- An Accelerated BS – MS degree program in EE is available to qualified UCF students.
- The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Eta Kappa Nu (ECE Honor Society), Women in ECE and CS (WEECS) professional societies provide real-life benefits including networking, face-to-face meetings with experts and career experience.
- The ECE Department is located in the Harris Corp. Engineering Center – an ultra high-tech building with state-of-the-art revolutionary equipment, computers, and labs for an outstanding educational experience.
“The 660-square-foot Siemens Digital Grid Lab equips students with the latest skills needed to land jobs in the evolving energy field. The lab features software platforms that map out grid-transmission needs and simulated models of the UCF campus power system where students will learn how to design and test a self-healing distribution grid.” — Read the whole story on UCF Today.
