North Seattle College
Eastern Washington University offers a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering at the North Seattle College campus. Coursework is taught by EWU faculty in on-ground classrooms that include hands-on laboratories at the North Seattle campus.
The program is ABET accredited and adheres to the same rigorous standards required of all ABET accredited electrical engineering programs. It requires a minimum of 180 quarter credit hours to complete. The degree combines studies in selected areas of physics, math, electronics, electricity, and science to prepare students to solve real world problems in electrical engineering. The first two years of the curriculum allow students to establish a solid foundation in mathematics and science, and to work on their general education requirements. The third year introduces students to a broad spectrum of electrical engineering coursework with specialization and capstone introduced in the fourth year.
To qualify for the program students must apply to both Eastern Washington University and North Seattle College. Acceptance to the major is automatic once students have been accepted to both schools and have signed a major declaration form. Graduation requirements include achievement of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average in departmental coursework, a 2.0 cumulative GPA for EWU coursework, and a 2.0 cumulative GPA in the general education requirements.
The electrical engineering series of courses begins once each year in the fall, and students must have completed a year-long (either quarter or semester based) calculus based physics series as well as one year of calculus to begin the sequence of electrical engineering courses.
