Electrical Engineering, B.S.

Photo of students working with professor in electrical engineering labElectrical Engineering is a diverse field of engineering study encompassing much of the underlying technology of our modern world. Electrical engineers lead the design of microelectronics, computers, communication networks, control systems and power generation and distribution. Aerospace and military systems include major subsystems conceived and designed by electrical engineers.

Electrical engineering curriculum

The lower division electrical engineering curriculum covers the fundamental aspects of the field, emphasizing the theory, principles and knowledge expected of all electrical engineers. The upper division curriculum includes elective courses in topics such as computer architecture, integrated circuit design and test, electronic devices and materials, and others.

Hands-on laboratory work and design

The curriculum incorporates extensive hands-on experiences through laboratory work and design projects. All electrical engineering students participate in a senior design project with a team of students, usually spanning multiple engineering disciplines.


Academic year 2014 included 127 undergradutes enrolled and 31 BS degrees awarded.
