Abstract

We have completed a first design of an electrical engineering systems concentration which will be embedded into a multi-disciplinary BSE degree accredited under the ABET general criteria. The outcome we selected was that the student can provide electrical expertise to a multi-disciplinary team. Then, focusing on the settings in which mixed technologies occur and thereby motivate the use of multi-disciplinary teams, we brainstormed the topics needed for this concentration, determined their relative priority and assessed the difficulty of achieving them within the resource constraints of our campus, department and curricula. The resulting electrical engineering systems concentration is summarized in Table 5. Arizona State University already maintains a separate ABET accredited 120 hour BSE program in Electrical Engineering offered through the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering at the Tempe Campus and an ABET accredited degree in Electronics Engineering Technology offered through the College of Science and Technology at the Polytechnic Campus. In table 6, we compare these two degrees against the concentration proposed here. As can be seen, these three degrees are easily differentiated from each other.
