The Electrical Engineering core program at RIT offers a comprehensive curriculum with a blend of the theoretical and experiential. The program has been carefully crafted to prepare electrical engineering students for immediate entry into the workplace or to pursue advanced graduate study. It is the best option for those students who wish to experience the broad range of disciplines in electrical engineering.
The entering student begins taking an electrical engineering class the first semester in the academic program in addition to the foundation courses in mathematics and physical sciences. Five electrical engineering courses in the first two years emphasize hands-on experience. The third and fourth years build on this foundation by focusing on subjects that form the core of electrical engineering. Courses taught in these two years cover:
- Linear Systems
- Electromagnetic Fields
- Physics of Semiconductor Devices
- Communication Systems
- Control Systems
- Digital Design
Courses offered in the fifth and final year allow you to specialize in an area of professional interest.
The program weaves 8 academic semesters with 2 semesters and 2 summer on-site cooperative education over a five year period to provide the prospective engineer a rich learning environment and immediate opportunities for professional employment. Over 1300 companies come to RIT to recruit our graduates.
