We provide our students with a sound education in mathematics and the sciences, a broad foundation in the fundamentals of engineering, elective opportunities to develop expertise in one or more emphasis areas, and the general education necessary to put technical knowledge into perspective. Theoretical work is complemented by an emphasis on the practice of engineering, and design activity is integrated throughout the curriculum.
Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and oversee the manufacture and maintenance of equipment that uses electricity. Electrical equipment includes power generating and transmission equipment, motors, machinery controls, instrumentation in cars and aircraft, robots, computers, communications equipment, and health-care equipment.
