DEGREE INFORMATION

B.S. IN ELECTRIAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING (BSEC) - ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING CONCENTRATION

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (BSEC) – Electrical Engineering Concentration is a new degree at LeTourneau University involving a curriculum of 127 semester hours.  This new degree offers students the opportunity to focus on the hardware aspects of electrical systems, including microcontrollers, digital signal processing, communications and digital systems.  

Electrical Engineers have lots of career choices! The Energy Industry needs them for everything from power plants to smart homes. Electronics run smart phones and washing machines and so much more. The Automotive Industry needs ECE majors for designing electric cars, autonomous vehicles, and all kinds of smart car features. They work on Telecommunications from satellites to radar to GPS to TV and radio. The world of Medicine benefits from improved test equipment and wearable (even internal) sensors and systems designed by ECE majors. They work in Government Agencies, Oil and Gas Industries, Aerospace, and the Mission Field.

 The Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering, including the concentration in Mechatronics Engineering, is a new program and will be seeking ABET accreditation following the first graduating class of BSCE students in 2021. Contact the Electrical Engineering department for more information about this new program.

INTERESTING CLASSES YOU'LL TAKE

  • Digital Electronics: The first step on your journey into the world of computing is to learn the basic circuitry underlying all computers.  Digital Electronics is the class where you’ll learn to design logic circuits (including adders, multiplexers, registers, and counters), along with hands-on implementation.
  • Mechatronics: One of the highlights of our curriculum is the introduction you’ll receive to the field of Mechatronics, the intersection of electronics, mechanics, computing, and controls. the foundation of modern automation and robotics. Mechatronics is a highly interdisciplinary and valuable field, the foundation of modern automation and robotics. Engineers working in this area may interact with product design, smart machines, networks, and the Internet of Things.
  • Electric Circuits: The core course for all of Electrical Engineering is Electric Circuits. In this class you’ll study the response of electrical components to steady and sinusoidal voltages. You’ll learn to work with op amps and analyze time-varying responses.
  • Introduction to Microcontrollers: This course is your introduction to the world of microcontrollers and microprocessors, the “brains” inside most equipment and computers in our modern world. In this class you’ll explore the application of digital circuits and logic concepts to the study of microcontroller functions. You’ll learn to program these devices at the machine level and work with hardware design for applications.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

 

LETU's BADGER Robotic Bird Control is building an automated system of long range amphibious bird chasing robots for A&K Systems. Robots will be programmed to identify and chase Canadian Geese from golf courses, parks, and other large areas.

 

 

FACILITY HIGHLIGHTS

LETU's Advanced Electrical Circuits Lab is where the students take the theory they are taught in the classroom and use it in real world applications. This allows our students to gain practical knowledge about the engineering profession; in this case electrical engineering.
