This department offers scientific and professional training in the fundamental
principles necessary for a career as a modern professional electrical engineer.
Emphasis is therefore given to preparation for high-level innovation, creative
design, and leadership in the modern technical society. Degrees offered are
Bachelor of Science, Master of Engineering, Master of Science, and Doctor of
Philosophy. The curriculum is fully accredited by the Engineers' Council for
Professional Development (ECPD) as a professional engineering curriculum.
Graduates are therefore educationally prepared to become licensed professional
engineers. Undergraduate course work is based on a scientific foundation pro-
vided by in-depth study of mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Through this
scientific foundation and wide scope of engineering courses and laboratories,
graduates are equipped with knowledge and problem-solving techniques to assure
both current competence and preparation for future developments. Students
completing the undergraduate program may go on to industrial work in design,
production, research, management, or related areas, or to graduate academic
work if University graduate school requirements are met.

Subject fields in the Electrical Engineering Science Department include com-
munications and electromagnetic field theory, electronic devices and circuits,
electrical theory of solid state materials and devices, energy conversion and
power systems, automatic control systems, and analog and digital computer
engineering. The extensive background of the faculty will prove valuable to
those who wish to undertake special projects or research topics in any of these
fields. Seminar work and participation in technical meetings sponsored by world-
wide engineering and student organizations provide a rich beginning to a pro-
fessional career.

Computer Studies

Several departments within BYU offer computer-related studies, and nearly
all departments make some use of computers. The computer option of the
Electrical Engineering Science Department is intended for those who are in-
terested in the application of engineering principles to the formulation and
realization of computer system designs. The scope ranges from overall organiza-
tion to logic details and solid state electronic phenomena. A student in this
option receives a concomitant survey of computer software adequate to give
proper perspective to hardware design and organization.

Students in all of the other Electrical Engineering Science options also learn
to use electronic computers in the course of their studies and frequently work
with subject matter directly related to computer design.

Students desiring a computer-oriented program emphasizing technology,
utilization, or software should consult the Computer Science Department and
Technology Department sections of this catalog.


Entrance and General Education Requirements

For the general education requirements of the University and the particular
requirements specified by the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences, see
those sections of this catalog.

Engineering science students are subject to all of the general education
requirements listed in this catalog, with the following exceptions and comments:

1. The biological science requirement may be reduced to four semester hours
instead of the six semester hours specified.

2. Electrical engineering students are encouraged to take full advantage of
the four hours of religion credit that may be given for attending devotional
assemblies for a period of four years.

3. It is especially recommended that the student take Economics 111 and
Psychology 111 in satisfying the social science group requirement.

4. Students should not attempt to complete the general education requirements
early. It is of extreme importance to maintain constant progress in the
technical areas because of prerequisite structure. This applies to all students,
including those who expect to interrupt their schooling for missionary work
or military service.

5. Students are required to take English 316 in meeting the English require-

Grade Requirements

University grade requirements are listed earlier in this catalog. In addition to
these requirements, the Electrical Engineering Science Department requires a
cumulative grade-point average of 2.00 (C) or better in mathematics, physics,
and engineering subjects prior to registration in Elec. Eng. 311. No more than
6 hours of D credit in electrical engineering courses will be counted toward


Four basic options within the broader field of electrical engineering are offered
as detailed in the following pages. These options all provide fundamentals with
emphasis in one of the more restricted areas of (1) computer engineering, (2)
electrical power and energy conversion, (3) solid state electronics, and (4)
electronic communications.

Other options may be worked out at the graduate level with the student's
advisory committee or at the undergraduate level by petition to the department

Spring and Summer Terms. The basic four-year bachelor's degree and five-year
master's degree programs are planned to utilize only the Fall and Winter semes-
ters. Students who wish to attend school during the Spring Term (beginning
in 1973) as well as the Fall and Winter semesters can usually, on the acceler-
ated schedule, complete the same bachelor's requirements in three years and
the master's requirements in four. It is not anticipated that the Summer Term
will be used for course work in the Electrical Engineering Department. Enter-
ing freshmen who have not already completed the equivalent of Math. Ill,
College Algebra and Trigonometry, may very profitably take this course during
the summer prior to their first fall registration.

Graduate Studies

The Electrical Engineering Science Department offers programs leading to the
Master of Science and the Master of Engineering degrees. In conjunction with
the other engineering departments, a program leading to the Doctor of Phi-
losophy degree is available. Students who are able to qualify for admission to
graduate work are strongly encouraged to plan to continue to at least the
master's level. Adequate preparation for many areas of employment requires
training beyond that available at the undergraduate level.

As early as the junior year, students who have a GPA of at least 2.50 and
who otherwise qualify may begin work on a master's degree. This allows three
full years in which to achieve, in a selected area, a substantial depth of under-


standing. Such depth is not usually possible in a one-year graduate program
because of necessary prerequisites. Under this three-year master's program,
certain graduate courses may be taken before other required but non-pacing
courses. Thus, requirements for bachelor's and master's degrees are completed at
approximately the same time, and both degrees are usually awarded simultane-
ously after five years of university work.

The Master of Science degree (M.S.) includes a great degree of emphasis on
research procedures and is recommended for students planning to continue
study to the doctorate level. The Master of Engineering degree (M.Eng.) allows
more course work and greater design training.

For further details on all graduate programs, see the Graduate School Catalog.

Degree Requirements. Requirements for the master's degree are 166 credit hours,
as detailed in the schedules which follow. These are the recommended programs
for all students who can qualify. The bachelor's degree requirements are 136
credit hours, obtained by omitting the courses shown in parentheses from the
listing of master's degree requirements. Schedules showing the recommended
sequence of bachelor's courses are available from the department office.

Technical electives must be selected from the areas of engineering, physical
sciences, mathematics, statistics, or computer science. Approved electives may be
selected from the above areas or others. All electives must be directed to give
strength to a well-defined and approved program of study.

Students with sufficient high school preparation may be excused from Civ. Eng.
101 by passing a special examination given each semester. This does not reduce
the required number of credit hours but does allow for more electives.

Math. Ill is listed on some of the schedules. This course does not count to-
ward the requirements for an engineering degree but must be taken if the
student has not already studied college-level algebra and trigonometry in high
school or elsewhere.
