Engineering reimagined

Electrical engineers design, develop, adapt, install, test and maintain electronic components, circuits and systems used for computer systems, communication systems, entertainment, transport, biomedical and other industrial applications.

In this major, you will have the opportunity to investigate the technology, design and applications of devices and equipment that use electrical energy. You will learn to develop high technology systems that generate, store, distribute and use electrical power and gain technical skills in areas such as communications, power generation and electrical machinery. You will learn to use computer systems, lasers, and other tools to develop and improve the medical equipment used to monitor, diagnose and treat health problems.
