Dual Majors


Students completing the BS in Electrical Engineering have the option of selecting a dual major by taking an additional year of coursework. The EEREE department currently offers dual majors in Automation, Robotic, and Controls Engineering, Optical Engineering, and Systems Engineering and Technical Management. Students completing a BSEE degree with a dual major will receive a single BS degree in EE with both majors listed on their diploma and transcript. The degree is issued upon completion of the requirements for each major (some courses may be used to meet the requirements for both majors). The requirements for each dual major are listed under the corresponding sections of the catalog.

Concurrent Degree


Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering

Interested and motivated students can choose to earn two Bachelor of Science degrees concurrently: a BS in Electrical Engineering and BS in Renewable Energy Engineering. The purpose of this dual degree is to provide the top students with a challenging academic program that prepares them for career opportunities in the electronics, electrical engineering, power, and energy industries. Students receive a BS degree in a classical engineering discipline (Electrical Engineering), as well as an emerging high growth discipline (Renewable Energy Engineering). This dual degree program takes approximately an additional year beyond the BSEE degree program (or 4.5 years total by taking courses in Summer term). To obtain both degrees BSEE and BSREE students must complete all of the courses required for the BSEE degree and the following BSREE courses. Consult with a faculty advisor for details.

CHE 202/205 General Chemistry* 4
CHE 260 Electrochemistry for RE 4
EE 419 Power Electronics* 4
ENGR 211 Engineering Mechanics: Statics 4
ENGR 355 Thermodynamics 3

REE 3XX REE Elective 3
REE 412 Photovoltaic Systems* 3
REE 413 Electrical Power Converter Sys. 3
REE 463 Energy System Instrumentation 3
REE 4XX REE Elective 3

*Can be used to meet BSEE degree requirements. Students must complete a minimum of 36 credit hours in addition to the BSEE degree requirements in order to get a second degree.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (Post-Baccalaureate)


Post-baccalaureate programs are for students who already have a first bachelor’s degree and are working on a second bachelor's degree. Oregon Tech’s Post-baccalaureate program in EE is not considered traditional graduate education, but it is more advanced than a bachelor's degree.

Oregon Tech Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology graduates may complete 36 additional credits to receive a BS in Electrical Engineering (post-baccalaureate). Students will receive two diplomas: a BSEET degree (upon completion of the BSEET degree requirements), and a BSEE degree (upon completion of the BSEE degree requirements, which include a minimum of 36 credits from Oregon tech beyond the BSEET requirements). Students who have completed an ABET accredited BS degree in Electronics Engineering Technology from another university must complete a minimum of 45 Oregon Tech credits to receive the BS in Electrical Engineering. Students pursuing this option should contact a faculty advisor to draft an academic plan that ensures all BSEE curriculum requirements are met.

The following is a list of additional courses that Oregon Tech BSEET graduates are required to complete in order to meet the BSEE degree requirements.
