In addition to core curriculum requirements, electrical engineering student take courses in engineering communication, math and science, and engineering science and design.
Students also complete technical elective requirements, typically during the senior year. Electives allow you to focus on topics that interest you, but all students must have at least one course from the following five elective areas:
Additionally, students can take electives in computers, although this is not required.
As seniors, all electrical engineering majors take two capstone classes where they apply knowledge gained during their degree program toward the design and creation of an industry-relevant electrical engineering project.
Up to three units of internship credit may also be applied toward the degree.
Students must also take the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination administered by the Nevada Board of Professional Engineers. The FE exam is generally taken during the spring of your senior year. Register for ENGR 490 in order to have the exam recorded on your transcript.
You have the option of choosing to pursue your electrical engineering degree with an emphasis in either renewable energy or biomedical engineering.
You can view the recommended sequence of courses for your emphasis on the course catalog. Please note that requirements and course offerings may change, and you should consult your advisor to ensure your course schedule meets your individual needs.
