Electrical Engineering

Be part of something new!

As part of the 21st Century Campus Initiative, the University of Washington Bothell introduced the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) program in January 2010.

The BSEE Program provides the highest quality of educational experience inherent in a degree from the University of Washington. UW Bothell's world-class faculty are dedicated to teaching and building excellence and expertise through strong student-faculty relationships, small classes and hands-on, experiential learning principles. Modeled after ABET-approved Electrical Engineering programs, the BSEE Program will specifically focus on meeting the critical needs of technology-dependent employers in the Puget Sound region.

The program provides a rigorous educational experience in which students master the fundamentals and applications of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.  The curriculum emphasizes design, teamwork, ethics, entrepreneurship, and civic responsibility. During their academic career at the University of Washington Bothell students grow to understand the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.

The BSEE Program is designed to accommodate students from diverse backgrounds including working students who desire a non-traditional program of study. Students are exposed to various learning environments including being in the classroom, on-line and hands-on lab work. Electrical Engineering classes are typically offered in the late afternoon and early evening.

Study and learn with other dedicated students

The BSEE Program encourages applications from students who have unique and varied cultural and life experiences. UW Bothell emphasizes close collaboration between students and faculty through team-based projects, presentations, research opportunities, internships and work-study programs, creating a positive, experiential, learning environment.
