College of Engineering & Applied Science
The Electrical Engineering (B.S.) program will teach you to understand advances in renewable energy, intelligent systems, nanotechnologies, and biomedicine. From shaping the design and manufacturing processes for microelectronics and control systems to learning signal processing and space systems, you will learn how to optimize and problem-solve for the future.
Electrical engineering co-op opportunities
Ranked top 5 for co-op (US World News & World Report), our students gain real-world experience at research and engineering firms around the world. Electrical engineering co-op positions offer diverse, professional experiences in product design and development, computer and integrated circuit design and fabrication, power generation and distribution, and electronics and photonics. Possible co-op companies you can work for include: Duke Energy, FirstEnergy, General Cable Corporation, L-3 Communications, Marathon Petroleum, and more!
What does electrical engineering coursework look like?
Multidisciplinary opportunities in electrical energy and the Smart Grid, nanoscience and nanotechnology, embedded systems, and biomedical electronics and computing are the main classes. You also can choose between two areas of interest: systems or micro-electronics and customize an academic track through a senior capstone project and upper-level technical electives.
"Thanks to the co-op program, I’m able to get a head start in my career and can pick out the projects I know I will be passionate about. The co-op program helped me find my niche in the engineering world and through trial and error, I was able to find that I’m passionate about working on embedded systems.”
