Electrical Engineering Major

Electrical engineering majors design and build the iPads, Kindles, laptops and electronics that have become a part of our daily lives. They also design and build the systems that make these products work — from the electrical components within the devices to the power plants and communication networks that feed them.

Get your hands dirty.

Work on cutting-edge research as an undergraduate electrical engineering major through our research laboratories: Smart Sensor Technology, Renewable Electric Energy Systems, and Speech and Signal Processing.

Three for one.

You can combine your electrical engineering major with a computer engineering major and still have room for a minor in another area — such as philosophy, physics or math — all in five years and without summer school.

Customize your studies.

Choose from a variety of electives to develop deeper expertise in a least one of the electrical engineering areas of systems and control, electromagnetic fields and communication, power and energy, and computer hardware and software.

Be an engineer before you graduate.

Through our co-op program, you'll incorporate 12 to 16 months of real engineering experience into your curriculum.

Some of the classes you'll take:

  • Introduction to Computer and Electrical Engineering 1 & 2
  • Electric Circuits 1 & 2
  • Circuits Laboratory 1 & 2
  • Electronic Devices and Applications
  • Electrical Instrumentation Laboratory
  • Introduction to Microcontrollers Laboratory
  • Electronics Projects Laboratory
  • Senior Design Project
