Description of the major
This major provides students with a strong foundation in electrical engineering through a combination of classroom study, projects, and laboratory experience. Analysis and design of electrical and computer systems are stressed. Built upon a core of science and mathematics courses, this major has the objective of educating graduates to be problem solvers. Students acquire the ability to work as members of a team toward successful attainment of a common goal, preparing them for work in industry or further study in graduate school. In addition, written and oral communication skills are developed, culminating in a senior design project that stresses communication as well as engineering content.
