Cutting-edge curriculum and facilities.

About our program.

Our curriculum provides you with an understanding of basic electrical engineering principles and emphasizes the development of problem solving skills. Your extensive lab experiences are integrated with your course work, which ensures development of fundamental knowledge — resulting in a graduate ready to enter the work force or pursue a graduate degree.

Bachelor of Electrical Engineering

You'll focus on the development of electrical devices, integrated circuits, microelectronic devices, electronics, electromagnetics, electro-optics, signal processing, computer systems, networks, communication and control systems.

Our state-of-the-art facilities provide hands-on learning — in combination with classroom concepts, you'll have hands-on practice in the microfabrication lab, optical information processing lab, photonics lab, signal processing lab, systems and control lab, communications networks lab, advanced digital design lab, opto-electronics devices lab, HAM-radio lab, ultraviolet laser lithography lab, and computational electromagnetic lab.

Bachelor's Plus Master's Program

We are proud to introduce our Bachelor's Plus Master's program that attracts and retains top-notch students making it possible to complete the master's degree in as little time as one additional academic year.


Through internships, co-ops, study abroad and service opportunities, you can expand your learning to reality and gain invaluable experience in your field.  About one-half of our students participate in our Cooperative Education working with companies such as AO Smith, Honda, Toyota, Fujitec, Battelle, YSI, LexisNexis and Naval Research Laboratories. And, many of our students benefit from our service-learning program — ETHOS.


15:1 student/teacher ratio — experience one-on-one assistance with transitioning, advising and growth as an engineering professional.

Work with faculty in their areas of interest — augmented with joint faculty from the electro-optics program, our electrical and computer engineering faculty are world-renowned teachers and researchers who have edited textbooks, published extensively in national and international journals and conferences, and are fellows in their respective professional organizations. Participate in extensive research opportunities with the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) — undergraduate hands-on research experience.
