Electrical Engineering Track

The Engineering Physics degree seeks to produce graduates who are broadly educated in the principles of engineering and physics, and who can perform a variety of tasks in engineering fields where traditional disciplines overlap. Students in this program may also desire to develop a more in-depth focus in a particular discipline such as electrical engineering. Students may complete a track in electrical engineering that gives them this emphasis by completing particular coursework within their technical electives. This is completed within the Engineering Physics degree which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Specializing in the electrical engineering track allows students to pursue careers in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, computers, defense, energy, instrumentation, and telecommunications among many others. As a group, electrical and computer engineering comprise the largest engineering discipline. Electrical engineering involves the analysis, design, development, production, control, operation and service of electrical devices. Some of these systems include wired and wireless communication, computing, digital control, power electronics, remote sensing, robotics, and signal processing among many others.

There are many course options in the Engineering Physics Curriculum. Courses in the electrical engineering track include the following:
