B.S.E.E. Curriculum

This degree program trains students to harness the power of electricity to improve the quality of life and technological capabilities of the world.

Earn A Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Mississippi College

Get hands-on training in electrical engineering as you learn to think critically and actively solve problems.

The ability of engineers to harness the power of electricity has significantly improved the quality of life and technological capabilities of this world. It will undoubtedly continue to be a crucial component of our development for the future. As a result, electrical engineering is consistently rated as one of the most in-demand and well-compensated career fields worldwide.

Students working on an engineering project

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering Program will attain a reputation for integrity and expertise in the technical workforce by demonstrating problem-solving skills, professionalism, and ethical conduct through their endeavors in engineering practice or other related pursuits. They will also demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and make meaningful contributions as members of engineering or other problem-solving teams, and demonstrate an awareness, appreciation, and ability to engage in life-long learning and service to society.

Research opportunities add to the learning experience. At Mississippi College, even undergrads get to participate in real-life field research — making them the envy of their peers at larger institutions. In summer 2011, a research team composed of students and faculty members took part in a 6-week field study of cloud-to-ground and intra-cloud lightning in the area surrounding Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.
