B.S.E.E. in Electrical Engineering
Study and apply electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism to a wide array of careers
In the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program at Ole Miss, students learn to understand, design, and develop devices and systems that operate on electric/battery power, or that generate electric power.
Students experience small upper-level electrical engineering classes with a low student to faculty ratio. The program curriculum is continually updated to bring students hands-on experience and exposure to new technologies.
With a Bachelor in Science in Electrical Engineering from Ole Miss, graduates are able to work in industries such as power utilities, automobiles, chemical and petroleum, defense equipment, radars, spacecrafts, telecommunications, mobile phones, and computers. Emerging technologies include Internet of Things (IoT) applications, smart phones, and national defense.
Summer internships are available for Ole Miss students with companies located in Mississippi and surrounding states. These positions offer valuable experience and may lead to careers upon graduation.
B.S.E.E. in Electrical Engineering Faculty
Electrical Engineering faculty members mentor students inside as well as outside the classroom. They provide advice regarding career paths, pursuing advanced studies, and solving academic issues. In addition to industrial or research laboratory experience, two Ole Miss faculty members are fellows of the professional society, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Specific requirements for the B.S.E.E. include two Csci programming courses (biomedical emphasis or general) or three Csci programming courses (computer emphasis); Engr 309, 310, 321, 360, 361 ; El E 100, 235, 236, 237, 331, 340, 341, 351, 352, 353, 367, 385, 386, 391, 431, 461, 462, 485, 486; 11 hours of specified courses for biomedical, 12 hours of specified courses for computer, 3 hours of specified course for general; and appropriate hours of technical elective courses (6 hours for biomedical, 2 for computer, and 14 for general). Technical electives, if not already included in the requirement, may be chosen from El E 313, 314, 413, 414, 415, 425, 433, 441, 443, 447, 451, 453, 482, 487, 523, 525, 533, 534, 535, 586; Engr 597; Csci 361, 423, 521, 530, 551, 561.
Freshmen may directly enroll in electrical engineering with an ACT Math score of at least 25 (or SAT equiv) and 3.0 high school core GPA. Students transferring to the program from other majors or other institutions must have a 2.25 cumulative GPA as well as a 25 ACT Math score or B in MATH 125 or higher math class.
In his 30 year career with Hughes/Raytheon, Bill Dykeman has served in various technical and management roles. He currently serves as Chief Engineer at Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems in Forest, MS. He is a Raytheon fellow and an expert in measurement technology for antenna and radar systems.
Students can participate in several organizations such as Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Engineers without Borders (EWB), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), and National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
