Electrical Engineering B.S.


Since instrumentation is at the heart of modern science and technology, electrical engineers are employed not only in the computer, electronics, communications, and power industries, but also in diverse enterprises such as transportation, the chemical industry, large hospitals, and government laboratories.

The curriculum emphasizes the scientific basis of electrical engineering and the application of mathematical analysis to engineering problems. Work is required in linear systems and signals, analog and digital circuits, electromagnetic theory, and electronics. Creative use of scientific principles in problems of engineering design is stressed, particularly in the senior year. The development of computer hardware and software is a part of many electrical engineering courses.

Extensive laboratory work serves to bridge the gap between mathematical analysis and the real world of “hardware.” Separate undergraduate laboratories are available for electrical measurements, analog electronics, digital electronics, microprocessors, hardware description languages, embedded systems, electromagnetics, control systems, and communications.

The ELECOMP Capstone Design Program, a cornerstone of our curriculum, offers seniors a one-year immersive experience working on real-world challenges in collaboration with industrial sponsors. This program bridges academic study and professional practice, ensuring students emerge well-prepared for their careers.
