The electrical engineering field is built on the shoulders of giants to meet the energy (Tesla, Edison and others) and telecommunication (Marconi, Bell and others) needs of our society. Out of the advancements in electronics and photonics technology, Electrical Engineering is everywhere around us nowadays (almost everything we use in our daily lives has a chip in it and implements some communication protocol and/or some sophisticated signal processing algorithm). Electrical Engineers provide energy solutions to light our homes; design, analyze and optimize wireless communication devices and networks that revolutionize the way we live (e.g. cellular phones, wireless networks, GPS, electronic commerce, smart rooms); advance underwater communication technologies for monitoring/sensing oceanic environmental changes; design smart software radio systems and networking protocols to facilitate ubiquitous terra-bit volume multimedia communications; develop biomedical devices and instrumentation to saves lives; use nanotechnology to produce better, faster, brighter, and stronger materials for solar cells and sensing devices; design the technology that enables customized multimedia entertainment; advance new green technologies that will power our future while protecting the environment. Electrical engineers can be found in almost all sectors of the work force, including research and development, product design, manufacturing, operations, service, technical sales, marketing, consulting, education, and policy making.
The undergraduate degree offered by the Department is the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE). The program provides the scope of knowledge and training needed for employment and also forms the basis for further study at the graduate level.
