BS in Electrical Engineering

The Electrical Engineering degree at Drexel University has the flexibility such that students can tailor their studies to their unique professional goals. Degrees can focus on tradition Electrical Engineering areas, such as circuits and electronics, telecommunications, power, and controls, yet, the degree can also be customized such to focus on audio, optics, robotics, biomedical, nanotechnology, and a wide variety of other areas. The key to success for all degrees is working with your academic advisor. Whether following traditional areas or customizing an Electrical Engineering degree, both follow the same degree requirements.

Template for entering in the Fall of 2012 or after

For those students that want to study a traditional concentration (while maintaining the option to customize the course selection), the templates below can be used to guide course selections.

Telecommunications/Networking and Digital Signal Processing

Telecommunications and digital signal processing (DSP) are some of the fastest-growing fields of electrical engineering. This area of study prepares students for mastery of fundamental and applied knowledge in the theory and the technology of the transmission and processing of information-bearing signals such as voice, audio, data, images and video. The courses include topics in electromagnetic propagation, communication devices and media, signal processing, modulation, and coding. Complementary electives can be taken in computers, electronics, control systems and electric power systems.

Telecommunications/Networking and DSP Templates for Students:


Electronics constitutes the study of electronic and optical semiconductor devices; analog and digital electronic circuits; and generation, transmission, and reception of information both in optical and microwave frequency ranges and guided or free-space conditions.
