Bachelor of science in Electrical Engineering
School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Electrical engineers are in demand. Aerospace, advanced manufacturing, computer engineering, power engineering, and communication systems – you name the industry, and electrical engineers have a place in it. The BS in Electrical Engineering prepares you for a rewarding career in design, research, testing, development, and manufacturing of electronic systems and equipment.
The BS in Electrical Engineering at WSU Everett is a two-year, full-time, daytime bachelor’s degree completion program for transfer students. Courses and laboratories for the program will be taught at WSU Everett. Courses and laboratories are taught in person by WSU faculty in Everett, via interactive video from WSU Pullman, and online through the University’s nationally ranked Global Campus program.
The WSU BSSE degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. On our ABET site you may read about our program evaluation and accreditation process.
