The curriculum in electrical engineering is designed to give the student fundamental knowledge in the areas of general interest to all electrical engineers. The course of study is therefore oriented toward the basic theory and concepts which prepare students for entry into any of the many activities open to members of the profession including research, design, development, operations, management, teaching, sales, and consulting. Laboratory experience is emphasized to provide for familiarity with electrical, electronic and computing equipment and with experimental techniques. Modern laboratories are available for electrical circuits, electronics, power systems, electromagnetics, measurements, digital signal processing, wireless communications and computers. Students are exposed to a variety of up-to-date computing environments to aid in their studies.
The curriculum is designed so that the equivalent of the first three to four semesters may be transferred from community colleges with minimal difficulty. The additional basic material common to all branches of electrical engineering is concentrated in the junior year, and maximum flexibility is permitted in the senior year, allowing the student to develop a breadth of interest or to select an area of specialty. The program offers a two-semester senior design project that typically involves industry cooperation, and provides students with valuable experience in applying their skills to solve real-world problems.
