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.
