About the Program
The course of study leading to the Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering is a practice-oriented curriculum. We have outstanding state-of-the-art undergraduate lab facilities open for instruction and hands-on applications. Program students gain a solid foundation in the underlying principles reinforced through practical experience so that our graduates are effective workers immediately after graduation.
The various fields of electrical engineering include the following:
- Electrical Energy/Power Systems – Conventional and alternative generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy safely, efficiently and economically.
- Control Systems – Analysis and design of systems with feedback using traditional and modern techniques, including robotics and electronics applications.
- Communications – Analysis and design of systems and electronics to send and receive information over various transmission media.
- Electronics – Analysis and design of circuits with electrical devices for applications in power systems, communications and controls.
- Electromagnetic Fields – Analysis and design of antennas such as those used in cell phone technology and microwave systems.
- Computers – Design of digital systems with modern devices such as microprocessors, VLSI circuits and FPGAs to fulfill the needs of larger systems used in communications, controls and power systems.
- The electrical engineering program provides a solid foundation for each of these fields with a set of electives that enhance the student’s understanding and abilities.
