Program Mission:The electrical program educates students for professional practice or further study in electrical engineering, contributes to the body of knowledge in electrical engineering education, and creates a supportive environment that enables students and faculty to achieve their best.
Program Objectives:In support of this mission, the electrical program prepares students to take their places as responsible practitioners of EE in a multidisciplinary environment.
The electrical program faculty holds degrees in various emphasis areas of electrical engineering and is committed to a curriculum that is broad-based in the engineering fundamentals of analysis and design, and has a strong emphasis in electrical engineering. The electrical program curriculum provides breadth in the areas of electrical engineering plus emphases on electronics, instrumentation and control systems, and power systems. The curriculum is highly structured and is laboratory intensive.
