  • Program Prerequisite: Not required.
  • Minor: Not required.
  • Grade Requirements: A grade of “C” or better in all EE and support courses is required for this major (a grade of “C-” is not acceptable). Students must have an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher to graduate.

Electronics Engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design and development of electronic devices and systems such as computers, telecommunications and controls. The Electronics Engineering Program offers courses in basic analog and digital circuits, microelectronic systems, electromagnetics, embedded systems, and signal processing. An internship, which gives students engineering work experience, is also part of the program. In the senior year, students complete a two-semester capstone project that integrates their course work. The program prepares graduates to enter engineering industry or pursue advanced studies in the discipline.

Program Educational Objectives

Educational objectives are the career and life accomplishments that the program prepares graduates
to achieve within a few years after graduation. The educational objectives of the WSU Electronics
Engineering Program are to produce graduates that are able to:

  • Design and develop electronic systems.
  • Effectively communicate technical information and participate in a team environment. 
  • Engage in life-long learning through continuing education and industrial practice.
  • Demonstrate professional ethics and social awareness.


Electronics Engineering is a new program at WSU and hence is not yet accredited by ABET.  As the program now has its first graduates from the 2011-2012 academic year, WSU has applied for accreditation to the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. WSU will be notified by ABET July 2013.


All Electronics Engineering students are required to meet with their faculty advisor at least annually for course and program advisement.  Please call the department secretary at 801-626-6898 for the name of your advisor and to schedule an appointment.  Individual student records are accessible through the WSU Home Page.
