The Electrical Engineering Programs at Arkansas State University are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The A-State EE program is a strong and growing component of the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and has made major strides in development since its inception in 1982. The program offers a full and diverse undergraduate curriculum in both lecture and well-equipped laboratory courses, and is heavily committed to the total education, scholarship, and success of all of its students, and service to other constituents.
Faculty and Student Interaction
The EE Program consists of four Ph.D. professors and approximately 50-75 students, both domestic and international, who work together in a cordial atmosphere conducive to excellence in education and scholarship. Class enrollments are usually in the range of 10-25 students, with laboratory course enrollments usually less than 20. These small classes promote frequent, direct interaction between professors and students, greatly enhancing the learning process.
Laboratory courses in several electrical engineering areas provide intensive experience in experiment/data design, methodology, measurement, analysis, and communication. Students receive design experience not only through EE courses, but also through multidisciplinary Senior Design I and II courses required for all engineering majors.
The EE program and college are also committed to preparing students for eventual licensing as Professional Engineers, and require students to take the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination during their senior year as the first step in the process. Most of the engineering faculty are themselves licensed Professional Engineers.
