B.S. in Electrical Engineering Curriculum

Extremely broad, and relevant to almost everything in our daily life, electrical engineering work with items from satellites, semiconductors, audio equipment, city lights, video components, telephone switching systems, audio equipment, fancy toys to highly sophisticated electronics like computers. In other words, the above work depends on electricity and the engineers who design and develop ways to harness its power. A BS degree in electrical engineering prepares students for work large companies and a host of small to medium-sized local and national start-up companies.

To qualify for the bachelor’s degree, B.S., a student must successfully complete 168 credits in Harbel College or their equivalent. The program requirements are mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer programming, engineering materials, electrical circuits, engineering mechanics, thermodynamics, engineering economy and numerical analysis. This degree also prepares students for an engineering career or graduate study in engineering and establishes a strong technical background that is valued as a competitive asset in many other careers.

Major Requirements

Electrical Engineering majors at HARCO receive a solid, broad-based education. In doing so, the student must fulfill the GED requirements of National Commission on Higher Education (NCHE) HARCO and the requirements of a major program. General education is that portion of the collegiate experience that addresses the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values characteristic of educated persons. It is unbounded by disciplines and honors the connections among bodies of knowledge. HARCO degree graduates will demonstrate competency in the following general education areas: communication, critical thinking, cultural and social understanding, information literacy, personal development, quantitative reasoning, and scientific reasoning.

Consequently, HARCO, in accord with the general education guidelines of NCHE if the Republic of Liberia, has determined the following list of general education 52 elective credits below that must and should be completed sequentially during the first and second semesters before students taking any class toward their major during the first semester of their sophomore year.
