Important Electrical Engineering Notes:

Electrical Engineering, one of the broadest engineering disciplines, is the branch of engineering that focuses on designing components and systems that utilize electrons and photons. Electrical engineers design wireless and fiber optic telecommunication systems. Both large corporations and small companies hire electrical engineer graduates.

The Watson School’s BSEE program, is accredited by ABET, the recognized accreditor for college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering and technology.  Our program covers all areas of electrical engineering and provides a balance between theory and practical application. It prepares graduates for a dynamic career in electrical engineering by providing them with the skills and knowledge for success. The faculty in our department are dedicated to providing the environment and opportunities students need.

Our curriculum is excellent preparation for graduate studies. For qualified undergraduates, we offer an accelerated five-year program that leads to both a BS and an MS degree in electrical engineering. A five-year program offering a BS in electrical engineering and a master of business administration will start in 2003.
