Electrical engineering is usually very present in anything with a screen or a switch. From the computers you are using right now to cell phones, industrial and manufacturing processes, the Internet of Things (IoT), defense, power systems, energy and energy efficiency, home appliances, robotics, and automobiles (both electric and those with internal combustion engines), electrical engineering has been a key enabler of our modern civilization.
Students can learn all the fundamentals of this field through our program, which combines classroom instruction with practical experience.
What will they learn in electronic engineering?
- Graduates gain a firm understanding of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and fundamental engineering concepts as well as problem-solving, design, communication, teamwork, lifelong learning, computer, professionalism, and ethics skills.
- Students who enroll in an electrical engineering program gain a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of electrical engineering as well as those underlying computer systems, robotics, electronics applications, communications, electronics, and electromagnetic fields (including cell phone technology and microwave systems).
- The rigorous instruction provided by the electrical engineering program gives students the necessary background for graduate school or career success.
- Additionally, a variety of opportunities for experiential learning are available to students, such as co-ops, internships, and undergraduate research projects.
Details of the Electrical Engineering Program
The goal of the Electrical Engineering Technology Program is to give students academic and technical education along with sequential and practical training in order to help them become mature, responsible electrical technicians. Basic and advanced courses in electricity, electronics, and electrical machinery are included in the curriculum. Additionally, students are required to take technical electives in areas of particular interest to them.
Electrical engineering coursework in the first two years is restricted to those topics that are crucial to know in order to prepare for more technical courses in the third and fourth years. In the second year, students are introduced to the foundational courses in electrical engineering.
The curriculum offers advanced instruction in the third and fourth years through required courses and electives. These electives are part of the curriculum so that students can gain more knowledge in their chosen area of electrical engineering.
Electrical Engineering Master’s
The master’s program in Electric Power Engineering equips students with the knowledge and expertise necessary to help develop more sustainable energy solutions. In areas like electric energy conversion, electrotechnical design, power system control, and electricity markets, it provides exceptional flexibility. Graduates can find employment opportunities at the cutting edge of developments in power systems and components.
