The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

Goals/Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The mission of the electrical engineering department is to provide quality education to the students of the department.

Statement of Goals

These goals are consistent with the University of Mississippi Vision, Mission, and Core Values Statement and the flagship 2020 goals of UM/2020 Strategic Plan which focuses resources in the areas of instruction, research, and service.

Undergraduate Program Philosophy The electrical engineering undergraduate program is founded on basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering science fundamentals. The program emphasizes theoretical foundation as well as the application of scientific knowledge to the solution of engineering problems. This focus is intended to lead students to develop analysis and design skills, and original thought processes that will serve them throughout their careers in a rapidly changing world.

The electrical engineering program is a broad-based program with an emphasis on the fundamentals of electrical engineering. The curriculum consists of background courses in science and mathematics; courses in the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts that foster an appreciation of the interrelationship of basic sciences, technological advances, and society; and major multi- course sequences in engineering. Multi-course sequence areas are

  1. Core topics common to many areas of engineering
  2. Circuits, electronics, and systems
  3. Digital Logic, computer architecture
  4. Technical elective courses
  5. Engineering design

The BSEE degree program can be pursued with biomedical engineering emphasis or computer engineering emphasis or no emphasis (general). In the first two cases, a specific set of required courses will determine that emphasis area. For general, a broad choice of technical elective courses is available to choose from.

Program Objectives Based on our philosophy and goals the Faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering have adopted the following Undergraduate Program Educational Objectives for graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) undergraduate program:

Student Outcomes
