Electrical Engineering Major

(130 credits; 64 upper-division)

Electrical engineers are instrumental in advancing our society by designing and analyzing components and systems related to electricity, electronics, and electro-magnetism. They are vital to the development of new energy systems, biomedical equipment, computing technologies, telecommunications systems, transportation mechanisms, entertainment systems and much more. An education in electrical engineering develops problem solving and communication skills that are crucial for success in today’s complex global society. Moreover, an electrical engineering graduate is well-prepared for a very versatile set of rewarding and challenging professional options. Electrical engineering students at Seattle Pacific University enjoy the combination of a Christ-centered liberal education with a high quality program accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) .

Suggested schedules and other advising documents are available on the Information for Current Students page of the engineering department's web site.

All students majoring in EE must pass a practice version of the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam before graduation.

Please see the link at left for EE Major course requirements.

Notes for Electrical Engineering Major Course Requirements

  • EGR 1125 is not required for students in the University Scholars program.
  • Students are required to pass the Chemistry proficiency exam or take CHM 1100.
