The curriculum for the first year is common to all branches of engineering. In order to enable a student to test his or her interest in electrical engineering, the student takes designated courses from the electrical engineering course offerings in the sophomore year. The junior and senior years allow for concentrated studies in the areas of electrical circuits and electromagnetic theory as a framework for courses in electronics, power systems, computers, automation and engineering systems.
Laboratory courses provide design experience, stress principles, methods, accuracy of measurements and the limitations of electrical instruments and measuring devices. Senior research and design projects offer opportunities for creative work with personal guidance by a faculty member.
