Undergraduate: Electrical Engineering Online

  • Program Overview

    Electrical Engineering Online (EEO)

    Electrical Engineering Online (EEO) leads to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. 

    This rigorous upper-level two-year program provides thorough training and education in the fundamentals of electrical engineering while students complete an entirely online degree program.

    Electrical engineers are recruited for a variety of fields including energy, aeronautics, communications, testing laboratories, computer technology of hardware and software, and systems for finance and banking. For example, a communications engineer may work on improving communications networks, designing efficient systems for commercial applications, tactical and traffic control systems, or satellite surveillance systems. A circuit design engineer may design, develop, and manufacture electronic circuits for a variety of applications including microcomputers.

    Stony Brook electrical engineering students may work as interns in engineering and high-technology industries where they can apply their classroom and laboratory knowledge to real-world practice, gaining those skills as preparation for their careers. Upon graduation they are employed by companies in the New York region and across the nation including BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman, Omnicon Group, GE Energy, Motorola, Boeing, and Ford Motors. Many students also choose to continue to pursue graduate degrees in engineering, business, law or medicine.

    Program Educational Objectives

    The electrical engineering program has two program educational objectives  (PEOs):

    PEO 1: Our graduates should excel in engineering positions and career advancements in industry and other organizations that emphasize design and implementation of engineering systems and devices.

    PEO 2: Our graduates should excel in professional developments including advanced degrees in engineering and related disciplines.

    Student Outcomes

    To prepare students to meet the above program educational objectives, a set of program outcomes that describes what students should know and be able to do when they graduate, have been adopted.  We expect our graduates to attain:

    a. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;

    b. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;

    c. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability;

    d. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams;

    e. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems;

    f.  An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility;

    g. An ability to communicate effectively;

    h. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;

    i.  A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning;

    j.  A knowledge of contemporary issues; and

    k. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
