About the Program

The BS in electrical engineering (EE) is a comprehensive program that trains engineers who can design and build a broad range of electrical devices, components, and systems. Some of the technologies our students develop include autonomous vehicles, robots, electronic chips, satellites, communication networks, wearable technology, brain-machine interfaces, and the power grid.

Concentrations in electrical engineering include:

  • Controls and robotics
  • Communications and signal processing
  • Electronics
  • Embedded systems
  • Internet of things
  • Power and energy systems
  • Space-based systems

Program Opportunities

Electrical engineers possess expertise in both electrical components and circuitry as well as knowledge on the techniques and algorithms to process and manipulate the signals that are used to communicate between electrical systems. The program prepares students for direct entry into a career in engineering or graduate study. Our graduates work at high-tech companies and government agencies such as Amazon, Meta, Google, BAE Systems, Boeing, General Electric, and others.
