Description of the major
Electrical engineering is the application of electronics, electrical science and technology, and computer systems to the needs of society. The Electrical Engineering faculty is committed to providing a curriculum that educates students for professional careers in electrical engineering in diverse industries such as defense, communications, transportation, manufacturing, health care, construction, and entertainment. Graduates also go on to advanced study in electrical engineering or a related field. Students acquire a broad knowledge base in electrical circuits, digital systems, electronic devices, electromagnetics, and linear systems as well as expertise in one or more areas of specialization. Students learn electrical engineering theoretical, analytical, and design concepts through lecture-based courses. Additional problem-solving skills and practical experience are developed through design projects and laboratory assignments, which also provide opportunities for learning team building, teamwork, and technical communication skills.
