The Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture has completed the documents with ABET to extend existing accreditation of the EE program in Everett. On our ABET site you may read about our program evaluation and accreditation process.
Electrical engineering at Everett is a degree completion program. Students should complete as many of the Washington State University general education (UCORE) requirements as possible before starting the program. While an associate’s degree isn’t required for admission, we recommend pursuing a transfer degree if possible; the associate of science-track 2 (AST-2) degree is well suited for pre-engineering study.
Electrical engineering preparation
The WSU electrical engineering program requires a specific pre-engineering curriculum. Students should complete these courses before transferring. See the course list and use our transfer menu to find equivalent courses at your current college.
How to apply

Students will be notified of their scholarship awards and conditions to receive the award.
All students must meet requirements as outlined in the WSU Catalog in order to graduate. See the WSU Catalog for degree requirements and talk with your academic adviser about planning and scheduling your courses.
Electrical engineers work in many different industries doing circuit design, research, development, manufacturing, and testing. They work with components and systems that include electric motors, radar, navigation systems, communication systems, power generation equipment, and electronic equipment. There are more than 160,000 electrical engineers in the United States and their median annual income is about $87,000.
