This is only one possible plan. Students should meet with academic advisor to discuss their own interest so that an individualized plan of study may be created. Different focus areas within Electrical Engineering may require different course sequence

Program Description


Electrical Engineering is the core problem-solving foundation of our technological society. That’s because anything involving the movement of electrons falls within the province of electrical engineers. Electrical engineers create, design, build and improve everyday necessities we now take for granted, from wireless, Internet ready cellular phones to digital control systems in modern automobiles from space-based communications and control systems, to advanced manufacturing robots and hybrid electric cars. Electrical engineers also design and fabricate the integrated circuit chips that make virtually all these devices possible.

The Department of Electrical Engineering offers students a number of programs leading to a variety of degrees geared to a wide range of interests and career needs. Bachelors of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering and Engineering Physics are available, as well as two graduate degrees: a Master of Science in Engineering with a major in Electrical Engineering, and a unique interdisciplinary Doctor of Philosophy degree in Engineering.
