What You'll Learn
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) at Oregon Tech offers unique, innovative degree options for students interested in this dynamic field. Designed to prepare professionals to meet the needs of the growing and quickly changing Electrical Engineering industry, Oregon Tech’s hands-on, applied programs offers our students professional practice experiences within a highly customizable degree.
Oregon Tech’s program is designed around a classic, foundational core of electrical engineering course work. Students enrolled in the BSEE degree program can also pursue dual degrees, concurrent degrees, and minors that allow students flexibility and specialization in their interest areas. Emphasis in these programs is placed on practical application of electrical engineering knowledge in a professional context, making Oregon Tech graduates highly sought after, and highly paid in the state, region and globally by companies, government entities and other organizations.
The BSEE degree program at Oregon Tech welcomes full-time students, transfer students, part-time and working professionals. Whether you are preparing for an engineering career in industry, skilling up for advancement in your current position, or building a foundation for advanced graduate education in the future, Oregon Tech offers high quality, in-demand, industry engaged degree programs with top faculty and small, engaged classes.
"Oregon Tech is incredible at preparing students for exactly what they need to know to be successful in their fields. We are taught hands-on, practical, and industry relevant concepts and the in-depth theory and mathematics to back it up."

What is Electrical Engineering?
Electrical Engineering Degree Options
The EERE department currently offers various dual majors and a MS in Engineering degree (MSE). Check out the link below for more information on degree options available for BSEE students.
Students in the BSEE program may choose their engineering technical elective courses to match their interests and career goals. We offer a variety of technical elective courses in key high-tech areas.
MECOP Internship Program: Real world work experience prior to graduating
Oregon Tech is a university member of the MECOP internship program and students in our BSEE program are eligible and encouraged to apply and participate.
MECOP's objective is to enhance the education of students through internships at a variety of high-quality companies, each of which is screened for acceptance into MECOP with the same level of scrutiny that MECOP places on selecting students. To ensure a diverse experience, participating students are required to intern at two different companies in an effort to give the students as much real-world experience as possible and to expose students to differing work cultures and industries. Students are paid by the member company at approximately 70% of a similar entry level position.
By participating in MECOP, students are guided through their coursework, participate in seminars and engage in two six-month internships with MECOP's business partners. It generally takes MECOP participants an extra year to complete their degree program (five-year degree/two six-month internships). Students who are interested should plan early and apply their sophomore year. Please see the MECOP website for more information.
Our courses are hands-on, rigorous, project-based, and focused on providing students the knowledge and skills necessary for a highly successful, rewarding career in electrical engineering.
