Synthesize science, mathematics, technology, and application-oriented designs into world-class consumer products, timely microprocessors, state-of-the-art computers, advanced electronic components, and much more.
Students design, analyze, and simulate simple digital and lumped parameter electrical circuits using a workstation environment and PSpice. They are exposed to the principles of AC circuit design and analysis and work with concepts of electromagnetic coupling and radiation. A course in Linear Systems prepares the student to analyze and design circuitry for transient behavior with the Laplace transform and for frequency response with Fourier techniques. Students assist in attacking problems involving electromagnetic emission and the coupling of signals as well as simple energy conversion applications. They design and layout digital logic circuits and analyze simple analog and digital communications systems as well as optical components and systems. By the end of their program, students increase their level of competence in a more specialized area of expertise (e.g., electronic design, control systems, communications, digital system design). Capable of work as an entry-level electrical engineer with the consequent increase of professional responsibility.

Cooperative education, or co-op for short, is full-time, paid work experience in your field of study. And it sets RIT graduates apart from their competitors. It’s exposure–early and often–to a variety of professional work environments, career paths, and industries. Learn more about how co-op at RIT is designed for your success.
