Core Sequence

The first two years of the curriculum are devoted to establishing a foundation in mathematics and physical science that is essential to the study of electrical engineering. In other courses, students learn about electrical engineering principles such as circuits and digital systems. The practicum course introduce students to electrical engineering practice and computer-aided design (CAD) tools that are used throughout the five-year program.

In the third and fourth years, students focus on the subjects that form the core of electrical engineering. Courses in circuits, electronics, linear systems, electromagnetic fields, semiconductor devices, communication systems, control systems, and microelectromechanical systems are taught.

During the fifth year, students specialize in an area of their professional interest. They complete a senior design project as part of the graduation requirements.
