Why Study Electrical Engineering?
Electrical engineering is all about energy — electromagnetic energy, to be precise.
Electrical engineers are involved in the design, manufacture and operation of all things electrical, from cell phones to supercomputers to space probes. Almost every major industry employs electrical engineers.
As an electrical engineering major, you’ll sharpen your skills in mathematics, physics and engineering and learn how to apply them in a global, economic, environmental and societal context. You’ll be well prepared to pursue graduate work or any number of exciting professions.
- Internship and co-ops mean most of our majors have work experience by the time they graduate.
- First-year iTEC program offers supportive environment and living/learning community for engineers and computer scientists.
- New Power Engineering concentration educates students about going into the electrical power industry.
- Late afternoon classes accommodate students who work full time.
