Electrical engineering is a fast-changing, diversified discipline concerned with the analysis, design and manufacture of a variety of devices, systems and processes involving electricity. It involves the transfer of electrical energy and information.
As the role of electronics expand in our society, so too does the role of electrical engineers. A career in this field could include microelectronics, telecommunications systems, electrical power and controls. Interdisciplinary areas such as biomedical engineering and robotics can also be part of an electrical engineering career.
The work of electrical engineers can be seen in literally thousands of products, from power stations and antennas to telephone switches, as well as the electrical systems that run home appliances, cars and chemical plants.
This program instructs students in circuit analysis, systems and signals, digital logic design, electronics, microprocessors, controls, electromagnetic power, and telecommunications.
Graduates from this program often work in diverse settings, from large high tech companies to small start up operations, power and telecommunications utilities, consulting firms and educational institutions.
