Electrical Engineering

An undergraduate degree in electrical engineering equips students with a versatile skill set and a comprehensive understanding of the field. Throughout the program, students delve into core topics such as circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, power systems, electromagnetics, signal processing, and communications. They develop proficiency in programming and problem solving, which are essential tools for innovating and designing the systems that help keep buildings, computers, factories, power grids, and telecommunications resilient and efficient. Military equipment such as radar, missile guidance systems, rail guns, computers, and communication equipment depends on electrical power and advanced electronics. Additionally, students can gain expertise in areas like renewable energy, control theory, fiber optics, semiconductors, biometrics, and machine learning. Over two semesters, students complete a real-world senior capstone design project within an interdisciplinary team of engineering students. These projects are often sponsored by military partners and include real-life customers drawn from industry, business, the community, faculty, and staff.

A degree in electrical engineering fosters critical thinking, teamwork, and hands-on experience through laboratory work and projects, preparing graduates to excel in various industries, from electronics and telecommunications to renewable energy and automation.
