This degree program endeavors to achieve its objectives by imparting to its students the fundamental principles underlying modern electrical engineering, along with the necessary skills and experiences to apply standard practices, methodologies and available tools for solving electrical engineering problems. The major areas of Electrical Engineering include electronics, analog and digital circuits, microprocessors, communications and control systems. The design sequence is spread throughout the educational experience curricula, culminating in the two-semester senior design project. Graduates are expected to keep pace with this rapidly evolving discipline. To this end, the faculty stresses the importance of continued education and life-long professional development by trying to instill in their students a sense of excitement for the prospects of this evolving technology, tempered by a strong sense of responsibility and concern for its potential impacts on society.
We expect that our alumni will exhibit the following:
- Successful careers in dynamic and multidisciplinary technical fields with the ability to apply engineering practices within societal, global, and environmental contexts in an ethical manner.
- Continuous professional improvement through life-long learning including but not limited to the admission to and completion of professional or graduate studies of the highest standard.
The Electrical Engineering degree program has three options:
These options require specialized courses as well as the 49 Engineering Credit Hours required in the accredited Electrical Engineering degree program.
