Electrical Engineering major Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Electrical Engineering major
Zoom into the next century. The leaders of the high-tech era are born here!
Advanced technological devices have made their mark on nearly every aspect of civilization. Electrical power is absolutely essential in order to use these devices—not to mention for the industries that produce them.
Electrical Engineering majors make full use of state-of-the-art facilities and equipment as they learn about the electricity that powers the modern world, alternative, earth-friendly energy systems, the smart grids designed to make the most effective use of electrical power, and other technologies. We turn out professionals equipped with a broad perspective, a passion for inquiry, and a powerful drive to create.

What you’ll learn with an Electrical Engineering major

  1. Make electricity and put it to work. Electrical engineers are experts in both.
    Our researchers get a specialist education across a wide variety of topics, from measurement and control to communications and information, energy, and electric and electronic materials. We aim to develop engineers thoroughly versed in how to make electricity as well as how to use it.
  2. Energy and environmental challenges are inseparable. Our engineers have a solid working knowledge of both.
    Electrical Engineering majors learn about petroleum, coal, dams, and the other power generation systems we rely on as well as the environmental challenges we face. Become an expert on alternative power generation technologies like natural energies and fuel cells, while learning how to produce, transport, and distribute electrical power.
  3. A rich educational environment and cutting-edge electrical industry experiments
    Get access to state-of-the-art facilities as you learn about diverse electrical engineering fields—from applied superconductor technologies to innovative materials designed to generate and supply electrical power. Conduct experiments and get the problem-solving skills you need to overcome real-world challenges.
