Professor Ahmed Eltom, Head

Program Mission:

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.

Program Educational Objectives:

In support of this mission, the electrical engineering program prepares students to

  • achieve success within the electrical engineering discipline that includes both professional and intellectual growth and development.
  • demonstrate professional competence through continuing education and/or advanced degrees.
  • be effective and positively contributing members within their professional, local, and global societies.

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.
