Electrical engineers make big dreams into reality—in the areas of alternative energy, wireless communications, electronic surveillance, computing technology, and semiconductor devices. Electrical engineers are at the forefront of technological advances. Imagine being part of a team that uses a CCD array to create an artificial retina, or a non-tethered pacemaker the size of a vitamin pill. How about developing an alternative-energy system to give a rural homestead power and wireless access, or designing the next generation of autonomous vehicles that conserve energy, plan routes, and eliminate collisions? Closer to home, you can imagine a system that monitors your grandmother’s health, automatically administers her medication, and communicates remotely with care providers to allow her to live safely and with confidence in her own home.
With a degree in Electrical Engineering, you can work in power systems, transportation, wireless communications, medical devices, home entertainment, sensors, and more to improve the modern world. Become an electrical engineer and design new, better electronics that lead the way for our future technology.
Electrical engineers have driven the technology explosion our world has experienced for the past 60 years. Innovations in electrical engineering now touch every aspect of our lives. Outside the classroom, our students have gained real-world experiences through internships and co-ops with local companies such as MacAulay-Brown, Booz Allen Hamilton, Northrop Grumman, and Wright State Research Institute.
