Electrical engineers (EEs) design a broad range of devices and systems from electrical power grids that supply homes and industry with electricity to systems that deliver telephone, radio, television, network and space communications. EE's design the computers that affect almost all of our modern lifestyles.

EE's are responsible for the microprocessor systems that control toasters and microwave ovens, automobiles and guided missiles, toys and space shuttles--just to mention a few of the myriad of applications of these systems.

Often overlapping with computer engineering, a college degree in electrical engineering can open up the door to a technical career in almost any industry.

Areas they work in:
  • Automatic Controls
  • Bioelectronics
  • Digital Systems
  • Electromagnetics
  • Analog electronics
  • Power and Energy Systems
  • Communications and Signal Processing
Companies our grads work for:
American Electric Power
Texas Instruments
and many more...
