Electrical Engineering

With our bachelor’s degree program in electrical engineering, you’ll be wired for success. Electrical engineering is a broad-based degree program concerning the study and application of devices and systems involving electrical signals, electronics and electromagnetics. It includes the rapidly developing areas of control systems, digital and computer systems, microelectronics, telecommunications, radar systems, robotics, signal and image processing and more.

Program Overview

The electrical engineering program develops your skills to learn, lead and serve in your profession and community. You will receive a thorough education in the principles and methods fundamental to the electrical engineering profession. With many technical elective options, you can customize your education by focusing your studies in one of several designated concentration areas. The electro-optics concentration aids you in pursuing new careers in photonics, an important emerging technology that impacts computers, communications and electronics. The robotics concentration allows you to specialize in robotics and control systems.

Our state-of-the-art laboratories give you access to hands-on learning. In addition to the laboratories dedicated to the undergraduate curriculum, you can make new discoveries by taking advantage of various research opportunities. Our laboratories include the Advanced Computer Architectures Lab, Advanced Digital Design Laboratories, Communications Lab, Embedded Signal Processing Lab, Ham-Radio Lab, Intelligent Signals Systems Lab, Microfabrication Lab, Microwave Electronics Lab, Robotics Lab, Signal and Image Processing Lab, Systems and Control Research Lab, Ultraviolet Laser Lithography Lab, and Vision Lab.

It’s important to be well prepared to begin your studies in electrical engineering. You should take chemistry and physics, and we recommend four years of high school mathematics, including algebra and trigonometry. While knowledge of calculus is not expected, it is helpful.
