Courses Degree requirements

Electrical engineering is a diverse field of study encompassing much of the underlying technology of the 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.

At WSU Vancouver, you will learn the fundamental theory, principles and knowledge of the field. You will gain hands-on experiences through laboratory work and design projects and will participate in a senior design project with a team of students, usually spanning multiple engineering disciplines.

  1. Circuit knowledge
  2. Microprocessor systems
  3. Data collection and analysis
  4. Power conversion, power delivery
  5. Microelectronics 

Electrical controls engineer, electrical design engineer, electronics, automotive or aerospace engineer, oil and gas engineer, medical engineer

Minor in electrical engineering

You may choose a minor in electrical engineering to complement a major in a different subject. Your course of study must be approved in advance by an academic coordinator.
