RESEARCH-BASED AND HANDS-ON EDUCATION FOR THE JOBS OF TOMORROW.
With a heavy emphasis on research (demonstrated by the $7.6 million in competitive
awards received in 2018) and access to state-of-the-art laboratories, students in
our program become leaders and pioneers in the field of electrical engineering. Through
utilizing our sequenced laboratory courses, our students have the benefit of receiving
a world-class education while focusing on unique projects in specific areas of study.
These courses give students experience in the critical areas of systems design, such
as working with a team and solving open-ended design problems. This invaluable experience
sets up our graduates for competitive placement into the job market.
