The Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering at Grove
City College prepares students for graduate work and employment in
research, design and development, management, sales, manufacturing and
education as well as top graduate and professional programs. Students
may concentrate their studies in electrical engineering or computer
In addition to the College core curriculum, students in this major
complete 98 hours of course requirements that begin with an exposure to
the fundamentals of science and engineering and culminate in a senior
capstone design project.
Students should refer to the College Bulletin or the major status sheet for complete information regarding major requirements.
A concentration in electrical engineering consists of advanced lab
work and hands-on experience in the use of electronic and electrical
devices including transformers, motors, generators as well as discrete
active and passive components, test equipment, and instrumentation. The
concentration offers students the flexibility to take advanced electives
in electrical engineering.
While the electrical engineering and the computer engineering
concentrations require high level instruction and experience in computer
programming and hardware, a concentration in computer engineering
focuses more specifically on these areas. Students take a series of
courses that offer in-depth study of advanced C++ programming, operating
systems, microprocessors, and computer architecture.
A robotics minor does not require any additional credits to be taken on top of the normal B.S. Electrical Engineering (BSEE) requirements. Completion of a robotics-related capstone project is required, and participation in the Robotics Club and in the BEST Robotics competition is encouraged.Students should refer to the College Bulletin or the minor course requirements for complete information regarding minors.
