Electrical Engineering Program
The field of electrical engineering covers the design, construction, testing, and operation of electrical components, circuits, and systems. Electrical engineers are concerned with information representation and transmission, advancing integrated circuit design for digital, analog and mixed systems, new devices and architectures, and all the areas of circuits and systems that have traditionally supported these efforts. This includes all phases of the digital or analog transmission of information such as in radio, television, telephone systems, fiber optics, wireless communication, and satellite communications, as well as control and robotics, electric power, information processing and storage.
The Electrical Engineering Program is supported by the facilities of the University's Academic Computing Center, as well as by the School of Engineering Design Center, which is described in Engineering facilities. The department supports eight major teaching and research laboratories, three additional laboratories used only for teaching, and a laboratory dedicated to the support of senior design projects.
