Electrical Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Electrical Engineers design, develop and test electrical and electronic equipment ranging from giant power generators to hand-held global positioning system receivers. The School of Engineering's labs provide the perfect place to exercise your creativity, allowing you to design and build electronic circuits and develop signal processing algorithms. You will study in a practical, design-oriented program, learning to use mathematical models to predict the performance of the circuits you design. You will be prepared to work in areas such as communications, aerospace electronics, medical instrumentation and imaging systems, and nonpolluting energy generation.

More information about Electrical Engineering can be found at the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) website.
