Program Mission

The program will graduate students ready for successful careers as practicing Electrical Engineers and as academics. Since Electrical Engineering is a broad engineering discipline, a graduate in this program will have wide flexibility for career options. Our graduates will also leave school with a solid understanding of the underlying physical and scientific principles of electricity and an ability to translate abstract concepts and ideas into practical solutions (e.g., circuits, control systems). Moreover, our graduates will have had exposure to a broad range of topics, such as micro- and nanoelectronics, communication and wireless systems, sensors, controls and power systems
