    What is Electrical Engineering?

    Nearly every industry utilizes electrical engineers. Graduates have the qualifications to enter careers in areas such as, but not limited to, telecommunications, computer engineering, manufacturing, aerospace industry, power generation and distribution, alternative energy, robotics, and automation. Typical job titles for graduates may include electrical engineer, electronics engineer, telecommunications engineer, project engineer, planner, project supervisor, consulting engineer, and design engineer.

    Electrical Engineering requires rigorous training in basic engineering principles along with the development of skills in the areas of planning and management of design projects and the associated systems and resources.

    Sample Classes

    • This course introduces the basic circuits used in analog signal processing systems. The primary focus will be on studying bias circuits and small signal models for diodes, BJTs and MOSFETs. In addition, functional circuits including diode rectifiers, logic circuits, and basic amplifier circuits using single transistors are discussed. A brief introduction to op-amps as signal processing blocks is included. Students put their analog circuit theory into practice in the laboratory.

    • Amplitude modulation, frequency and phase modulation and demodulation techniques are examined. Bandwidth and power considerations, noise in communication systems, signal analysis and transmission are included as are noise and probability aspects of communication systems and practical communication systems.

    • The focus of this course is a study of feedback control systems theory including practical applications of compensation and P,PI, and PID concepts. Control system modeling, transient and steady state characteristics and response, stability and frequency response are analyzed; Compensation and controller design using Root locus methods are covered. The use of control system software, such as MATLAB, in the analysis and design of control systems is emphasized.

    • This course covers the historical, social and economic considerations of the electrical engineering discipline. It includes studies of professional conduct, risks, and liabilities, and intellectual property relative to the electrical engineering profession. Electrical Engineering case studies will be use. Further the study of professional ethics, electrical code fundamentals (i.e. NEC), laws governing the practice of electrical engineering, contractual relationships, the licensure process for professional engineers are all undertaken in this course.
