Earn your electrical engineering degree from an accredited institution
Arizona State University offers the first fully online electrical engineering degree accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. This means the online degree meets the commission’s educational standards and prepares students to excel in engineering fields.
ASU offers programs that lead to professional licensure with the state of Arizona and may allow graduates to be eligible for licensure in other states. Students should check the professional licensure list for the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering to determine if this program meets requirements in their state: https://asuonline.asu.edu/about-us/licensure/. Students should note that not all programs within the Fulton Schools lead to professional licensure.
The electrical engineering degree starts with fundamental courses focused on advanced math, science and the engineering design process. Later in the program, you’ll have the opportunity to take specialty courses covering electromagnetic fields, microprocessors, solid-state electronics, hardware design, circuits, photovoltaic cells, energy systems and more. Lab courses include industry-standard design and simulation tools to help you apply your knowledge and gain practical experience.
As a student in this program, you’ll also have the option to pursue a concentration in electric power and energy systems.
How long does it take to get an electrical engineering degree and what courses will I take?
If you’re a full-time student, you can earn your online electrical engineering degree in four years, though the actual time you spend may vary based on your circumstances. In general, during the first two years of study, you’ll develop a foundation in the essential principles of engineering and electricity. Over the next two years, you may specialize in specific electrical engineering subfields. The program concludes with a two-semester design lab, during which you work with your peers to create an original project.
What can I do with an electrical engineering degree?
Electrical engineering bachelor’s degree holders can get jobs in a variety of fields working on the electrical components of computers, robots, cell phones, navigation systems and more. Many of these jobs are well-compensated and offer the opportunity to make an impact on energy systems and technological development.
