Electronics Engineering - B.S.

Effective Fall 2020, Johnson & Wales University will complete its transition from a term calendar to a semester calendar. Starting with the 2020–21 catalog, all programs will represent course requirements in semester credit hours rather than quarter credit hours. Students who started on terms and will finish their degree requirements on semesters should consult with their assigned academic counselor in Student Academic Services or faculty advisor on semester transition academic planning.

The Electronics Engineering bachelor’s degree program provides a broad-based foundation in current and projected growth areas of electron­ic engineering. The program focuses on the technology dynamics of the industry in embedded systems design and applications.

An immersive, lab-based approach integrates mathematical and engineering applications with contemporary developments in the field.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, engineering sciences and contemporary developments in the field to perform analysis and design to desired engineering specifications.
  • Use engineering processes to identify and analyze problems, formulate solutions, design simulations and experiments, and interpret results.
  • Communicate complex concepts through design principles to create adaptable and efficient solutions that reflect ethical considerations and global awareness in the resolution of engineering problems.
  • Employ industry-standard techniques, skills, and tools to analyze and interpret data to formulate engineering solutions.
  • Integrate knowledge, tools, and problem - solving skills to implement the design, creation, and testing of solutions to engineering problems.

Through experiential education options, students have the opportunity to gain work experience at a variety of industry partnership sites.

Students who graduate with a bachelor's degree must leave Johnson & Wales University with effective writing skills to fulfill the graduation writing requirement. These writing skills will be assessed at the completion of ENG1021 Advanced Composition and Communication. Students who have met the requirement of ENG1021 Advanced Composition and Communication or ENG1027 Honors Advanced Composition and Communications: Civic Discourse outside of Johnson & Wales University must fulfill the graduation writing requirement through successful completion of ENG0001 Writing Workshop.

In collaboration with academic colleges across all JWU campuses, JWU Study Abroad programs offer a variety of international options for major, minor, Arts & Sciences, and elective credit at many price points for students during the academic year and summer. Faculty-led, exchange, affiliate, and direct-enroll programs range in duration from one week to a full semester. Financial aid is applicable and scholarships are available.
