Undergraduate Degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science


Electrical Engineering

The electrical engineering degree program provides the depth of understanding necessary to meet the challenges of ever-changing technology while being flexible enough to allow students to pursue in-depth study in at least one specialization area of electrical engineering. Students gain an understanding of mathematics and the basic engineering sciences, along with a fundamental education in electrical circuits, computer networks, electromagnetics, electronics, digital systems, communications, control systems, and energy generation/conversion. Selection of elective courses, in consultation with the academic adviser, enables students to specialize in the above mentioned areas, as well as in robotics, microcircuits, microprocessors, and high frequency electronics. Laboratory work associated with electrical engineering courses is an important part of the degree program. This work helps students gain hands-on experience in applying the theoretical knowledge they acquire to practical engineering problems. Engineering design is an important component of the curriculum that concludes with a significant year-long senior design project.

Bioengineering Option of Electrical Engineering

This area offers excellent opportunities for those interested in applying the techniques of the electrical engineering to problems of environmental science, wildlife studies, biology and medicine. Employment opportunities exist in state and federal agencies, industry and medical institutions. Career placement includes such areas as use of telemetry for wildlife management, environmental monitoring, design and development of biological and medical instrumentation and clinical engineering. With minor modifications, the curriculum shown may be used as excellent preparation for entrance to medical or dental school.
