The electrical engineering industry is increasingly transdisciplinary as electrical and computing devices are used in wireless communications, medicine, energy, space exploration and the environment. The development of the microprocessor has expanded the opportunities for electrical engineers to improve the design of familiar products such as automobiles, consumer and office products, entertainment systems and a vast variety of test and measurement instruments and machine tools.

Electrical engineers combine the laws of electricity and principles of engineering to a variety of applications that directly affect the daily lives of most of the world’s population, from the development of satellite communication links to a sophisticated patient monitoring system in a hospital trauma unit. Electrical engineers are concerned with a vast array of design and development challenges associated with radio and television transmitters and receivers, telephone networks and switching systems, computer systems and electric power generation and distribution.

Our faculty includes experts in many application areas such as the design of flight control for aircraft and the implementation of neural interfaces for biomedical applications. They are committed to the integration of use-inspired research with locally and globally relevant academic programming, and have achieved national recognition by pursuing the highest-quality activities in research, training and entrepreneurship.

B.S.E. in electrical engineering

Undergraduate students will take basic engineering courses as well as specialty courses in circuits, electromagnetic fields and waves, microprocessors, communication and control systems, solid-state electronics and electrical power systems. Undergraduates in the program prepare for positions as electrical engineers in industrial, commercial and government organizations.

Undergraduate Opportunities

The Senior Design Award

  • The Senior Design Award is an undergraduate team award for senior electrical engineering students. It is presented semi-annually at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters, to the EEE 489 groups that win their respective senior design competitions.  Winning teams receive a certificate of achievement and prize money, which is divided among all team members. The award is jointly funded by ECEE and the Palais Fund—a fund established by professor Joseph Palais, ECEE graduate program chair, and his wife Sandra.
