Degree Program

Electrical Engineering is a broad field encompassing many diverse areas. As in most areas of engineering, knowledge of mathematics and the natural sciences is combined with engineering fundamentals and applied to the theory, design, analysis, and implementation of devices and systems for the benefit of society.

The undergraduate curriculum in Electrical Engineering is designed to provide students with a solid background in mathematics, physical sciences, and traditional electrical engineering topics. A wide range of program options are offered, including but not limited to:

  • Wireless and optical communications
  • Semiconductor device physics and fabrication
  • High-frequency RF/microwave circuits and antennas
  • High-speed analog, digital, and mixed-signal IC design
  • Solid-state lighting and optoelectronics
  • Micro-electro-mechanical Systems (MEMS)
  • Digital Signal and Image Processing
  • Control Systems and Robotics

The undergraduate major in Electrical Engineering prepares students for a wide range of positions in business, government, and private industrial research, development, and manufacturing organizations.
