Morgan State Launches Partnership with Harford Community College

Morgan State University and Harford Community College yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding for the establishment of a joint undergraduate degree program in electrical engineering.

The partnership is designed to meet Maryland’s projected increase in demand for electrical engineers over the next few years, resulting from the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) initiative of 2005, and was signed by Morgan President David Wilson and Harford President Dennis Golladay.

“This program expansion will allow students to be able to take electrical engineering courses while continuing to work at the military facilities near Aberdeen,” said Gerald Whitaker, Program Director in the MSU School of Engineering. “It is our projection that the added accessibility, affordability, flexibility of this approach will increase the number of students who enter and complete electrical engineering programs at Morgan and choose careers with the government and government contractors.”

The program is schedule to start in the Fall of 2012, with enrolled students completing the HCC program transferring to Morgan for the final two years of degree coursework. The undergraduate program in electrical engineering that is currently offered at Morgan State University is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
