Why Choose Electrical Engineering?
Electrical engineers work in an exciting, ever-evolving field. At Manhattan College, the ABET-accredited electrical engineering program teaches you the physical and engineering principles needed to design and operate:
- electronic and medical devices
- wiring in buildings
- biomedical instrumentation
- power grids
- communication systems
- defense systems
Our students learn by doing. You will gain practical firsthand experience through lab sessions, research projects and a design capstone course in which you will design your own devices and systems as part of a team.
Some topics our students have recently studied include:
- bioelectrical engineering and bio-instrumentation
- cybersecurity systems
- energy conversion, alternative energy
- electromagnetics, photonics, biophotonics, nanophotonics
- sensors, device miniaturization and instrumentation
- robotics, unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles
Concentrations reinforce the broad relevance of the powerful problem-solving methodologies of engineering, and illuminate enabling technologies for applications of technology. The following concentrations are available to computer engineering students:
- Bioelectrical Engineering
- Power Grids and Green Energy Engineering
In addition to regular coursework, Manhattan College offers opportunities for undergraduates to do research during the summer directly with a faculty member. As a research scholar, you receive a stipend along with support and guidance from the Center for Graduate School and Fellowship Advisement to help you develop the intellectual, interpersonal, and research skills necessary to competitively apply to graduate schools, professional schools, and other fellowships.
