Electrical Engineering and Computer Technology

Overview

According to the US Department of Labor, Electrical Engineers "design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment." Computer Engineers are prepared for careers in the fast-growing and ever-pervasive field of computer technology. There is a good bit of overlap between these two sub-industries of Engineering and below we provide specific and overlapping resources for students interested in these areas.
