Laboratories are associated with most of our electrical courses, providing hands-on practical experiences that are essential to a successful career in the field.
Each program in the ECCS department shares the same goals of producing high quality graduates through a broad-based curriculum that stresses fundamentals and the development of a professional work ethic. Many of our courses offer accessible, hands-on, practical laboratory experiences using relevant equipment and disciplined practices.
Electrical engineers are trained problem solvers who understand both the informational and power aspects of electricity. Our program provides students with a broad-based, rigorous curriculum providing a solid grounding in engineering fundamentals, including both analog and digital systems, as well as exposure to advanced areas such as communications, controls, power electronics, and signals.
An Advanced Energy Concentration is available. The concentration requires both specific and elective energy relevant courses as displayed in the document below called “Electrical Engineering Advanced Energy Concentration Curriculum Guide.”
Program Educational Objectives
