Electronics Engineering - B.S.

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.
  • Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership by creating a collaborative and inclusive environment.

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

Students that do not place in MATH1040 Calculus I, will need to take an extra course(s), MATH1020 Fundamentals of Algebra, and/or MATH1030 Precalculus, as prerequisite(s).  If needed one, or both, will count as a free elective(s).

D Directed Experiential Education (DEE) opportunities are based on project availability with community partners and student eligibility. For more information, visit Experiential Education & Career Services (EE&CS). 

IcTypically, internships require a minimum of six credits. Students interested in a 9 or 12-credit internship can apply additional experiential learning and free elective credits, if available. Students are strongly encouraged to contact a faculty advisor before scheduling internship and free elective credits.

#  In addition to classes, free elective credits may be applied to a number of options such as internship, study abroad, Directed Experiential Education courses and courses in a specialization or minor as relevant. For Accelerated Master's program students, up to three graduate-level courses may apply. Students are strongly encouraged to contact a faculty advisor before scheduling free elective credits.

NOTE: Students must pass MATH0010 Pre-Algebra or have equivalent placement scores to enroll in required math course(s).

Note: Students must pass ENG0001 Writing Workshop or have equivalent placement scores to enroll in ILS 2000-level courses

In collaboration with academic colleges across all JWU campuses, JWU Global Study Abroad programs offer a variety of international options for major, minor, arts and sciences, and elective credit at many affordable price points for students during the academic year, break periods, and summer. Faculty-led, exchange, affiliate, and direct-enroll programs range in duration from one week to a full semester or full year. Financial aid may be applied and scholarships are available. Visit the study abroad website for information, program descriptions and online applications. Where will you go?

Three to five years after graduation from the B.S. in Electronics Engineering program, graduates will:

  • Use their engineering knowledge and skills in the field of electronics engineering and related disciplines to solve technical problems in an ethical and responsible manner using engineering principles, tools, and practices.
  • Demonstrate expertise in communications, teamwork, and leadership as members of diverse engineering teams in a global environment.
  • Engage in continuous professional development and pursue life-long learning through education and professional organizations.
