The electrical engineering program educates students for professional practice or further study in electrical engineering, contributes to the body of knowledge in electrical engineering education, and creates a supportive environment that enables students and faculty to achieve their best.
In support of this mission, the electrical engineering program prepares students to
- take their places as competent practitioners of electrical engineering, displaying the modern skills and knowledge of theoretical and practical engineering, including social and communication skills.
- be active in professional societies, and will be progressing towards professional registration.
- pursue continuing education and/or graduate studies, and will be proactive in mentoring novice or prospective engineers.
- take responsibility by considering their work’s effect on domestic and global environmental safety, social and economic factors.
- function effectively independently or in multidisciplinary environments.
The electrical engineering program faculty holds degrees in various emphasis areas of electrical engineering and is committed to a curriculum that is broad-based in the engineering fundamentals of analysis and design, and has a strong emphasis in electrical engineering. The electrical program curriculum provides breadth in the areas of electrical engineering plus emphases on electronics, instrumentation and control systems, and power systems. The curriculum is highly structured and is laboratory intensive.
Degree and Accreditation:
