UW Bothell to offer electrical engineering

The UW Bothell has received approval from the state Higher Education Coordinating Board to launch a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program (BSEE) in Winter, 2010.

The BSEE will be the first degree offering in the institution’s new Science and Technology Program, created to help foster the development of science, technology, engineering and math programs at the University.

Says Arnold Berger, chair of the Electrical Engineering Faculty Committee, “The BSEE program combines the rigor of an engineering education with the core values of UW Bothell — small classes and close collaboration with faculty dedicated to your success. Best of all, it is designed as a hybrid program, combining both on-line and on-site courses to meet the needs of traditional and non-traditional students.”

Due to this unique configuration, the degree program is likely to appeal most to working students as well as students from remote areas of the state and those who desire a non-traditional program of study.

The UW Bothell BSEE is modeled after Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology-approved programs and will prepare students to meet the critical needs of technology-driven employers in the Puget Sound region. Applications are now being accepted for the inaugural class. Information is available here.
