Electrical engineering is a broad field that cuts across many other disciplines utilizing electrical energy; electrical/electronic systems; computers; electromagnetic devices; communications; and electrical control. Electrical engineering is a marketable, lucrative, geographically widespread, and fulfilling career.
An electrical engineering education builds upon a strong foundation in mathematics, science, and engineering fundamentals, as well as, increasingly, strong laboratory/field, instrumentation, computer, problem solving, design, human relations, teamwork/leadership, economics, and communication knowledge and skills. Historically "non-technical" issues, such as global trade, ethics, litigation, aesthetics, and the environment, are also becoming increasingly important in an electrical engineering career. The Electrical Engineering Program has designed a curriculum to provide its students competence in and sensitivity to these areas.
