If you embrace academic challenge and want to solve real-real-world problems, electrical engineering will enable you to create what’s next. Help create a world of expanded automation and a trillion-sensor economy driven by the capture, storage, processing, interpreting, and transmission of signals and data.
While electrical engineers work across every industry, the power generation business is a good example of how your broad B.S. in Electrical Engineering degree can lead to future specialization. Within power, graduates specialize as relay protection, communications, substation, distribution and transmission engineers, and work for electric utility or consulting firms.
The Department of Electrical Engineering offers a comprehensive curriculum that combines rigorous and balanced foundation in physics, mathematics, and computing; core courses in electronics, information systems, and digital systems; and higher-level skill in the analysis and design of systems. You will gain experience with a range of state-of-the-art devices and laboratory tools, progressing toward upper-level coursework and a yearlong senior capstone design project.
