Alabama A&M University School of Engineering and Technology Proposed Admission Policy for Engineering
I. Admission directly from High School
Students must meet all requirements established by the University, that is, high school students entering Alabama A&M University must have maintained a grade point average of "C" in English, Mathematics, Science and History and Political Science. In addition, the entrance requirements in mathematics are three and one-half units; algebra, two units; plane geometry, one unit; and trigonometry and/or advanced mathematics, one-half unit. At least two units in science; chemistry, one unit; and physics, one unit. Students must have a minimum ACT score of 22 in mathematics.
II. Admission from University College
Prior to entering the engineering program, a student must complete all requirements of the University College. In addition, students must have maintained a minimum overall average of 2.5 and completed at least the first courses of chemistry, physics and calculus with a grade of "C" or better.
III. Transfers from other Institutions
Students desiring to transfer to the Engineering program must be in good academic standing at the College or University in which they are transferring from. In addition, they must have maintained a grade-point average of 2.5 or better, completed at least the first courses of chemistry, physics, and calculus with a grade of "C" or better, and completed requirements of the University College here at Alabama A&M University, if they transfer in fewer than 30 hours.
Department of Electrical Engineering
1. Students will learn to analyze and design complex electrical engineering systems through structured lectures, discussions, simulation, project design, and evaluations by the electrical engineering faculty. Acquisition of these skills will be demonstrated by performance on examinations, assignments, presentations, and senior projects. This objective will be achieved in all its phases by the successful completion of the electrical engineering curriculum.
2. Students will demonstrate ability to use available resources and productivity tools such as the library, simulation software, measurement and analysis instruments, computer communication software packages, and the internet. Utilization of these tools is incorporated throughout the electrical engineering curriculum to include course assignments, laboratories, and projects. This objective will be achieved by completion of each of the courses in electrical engineering.
3. Students will develop the ability to communicate orally, graphically and in written form such that ideas are transferred in a proper and effective manner. They will demonstrate these skills through a series of required reports in each laboratory course and poster/slide presentations of the senior design projects.
4. Students will develop professional and ethical responsibility and demonstrate that they are aware of these responsibilities through written essays and presentations by the time of enrollment in the senior year.
5. Students will understand the need for continuous lifelong educational enhancement. The Department will maintain contacts with graduates and report on achievement of this objective.
