About the Program
Innovations by electrical engineers touch every aspect of modern life, from the subway systems beneath our cities, to the HD televisions on our walls and the smartphones in our pockets. This process of innovation is never complete, and new challenges await tomorrow’s electrical engineers. The Electrical and Systems Engineering program draws upon courses across an array of disciplines – including mathematics, physics, and computer science – in addition to a wide variety of courses in electrical and systems engineering. The liberal arts core provides the intellectual breadth, a “license to learn,” preparing students to thrive in a multicultural globalized world and to learn and adapt quickly in areas that evolve with ever-increasing swiftness. The courses often include hands-on coursework in our state-of-the-art laboratories. In addition, the variety of specialized subjects you can investigate through elective coursework — from micro-electronics to wireless communication and smart grid power systems — ensures a highly flexible education suited to your particular interests.
You can apply your electrical and systems engineering training across a wide spectrum of fields. Launch a career in electronic design, bioengineering, city planning, and Astronautics, or pursue opportunities in image processing, telemetry, computer design, and patent law. Some graduates also pursue advanced studies toward a master’s or doctorate degree.
