Electrical Engineering

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.

In addition to receiving a well-rounded education in electrical engineering, students in the bachelor's degree program can choose to pursue an emphasis in biomedical engineering or renewable energy.

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.
