Electrical engineering isn't just about keeping the lights on. Today's electrical engineers are expert thinkers and problem solvers, and they can be found working in high-tech start-ups, global organizations, power companies and research laboratories.
A degree in electrical engineering prepares students to develop solutions to urgent problems in areas including generating and regulating electric power supplied to the home, manipulating signals for communication purposes, and designing specialized circuits. Our graduates have the ability to work with sensors, acquire data, process signals and information, model complex systems, and integrate various sources of energy in distributed power systems.
Degrees in Electrical Engineering
Minor in Electrical Engineering: Open to all students except electrical engineering majors, the minor includes coursework in circuits and signals and systems as well as selected upper-division electrical engineering courses.
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering: Students in the bachelor's degree program take courses in circuits, signals and systems, power systems, and control systems.
Master of Science in Electrical Engineering: The master's degree program offers a flexible curriculum that allows you to select coursework that meets your individual goals. Students can choose from a thesis or coursework-only option.
Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering: Students in the Ph.D. program gain both a wide understanding of electrical engineering fundamentals as well as significant expertise in an area of focus, including both advanced coursework and original research.
