Develop an in-depth understanding of electrical and electronics theory and its application, applied design, and implementation to electrical and electronic systems.
Students learn fundamental and advanced concepts in electrical engineering and apply these concepts to design new electrical and electronic systems and improve existing ones. Advanced design software, development methods, and troubleshooting techniques are tools students master as they progress through the curriculum. In their last year at RIT, students take part in a Senior Design Project through the Excellence in Innovation (EII) program. Projects include new product development, product improvement, system or project analysis, and code compliance. These projects are guided by a faculty member and use state-of-the-art laboratory and computer facilities.
Programming software: C++, Python, object-oriented programming, PSPICE, MATLAB, VHDL, Digital Signal Processing.

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.
