Electrical Engineering

Student Research

Students have multiple opportunities for planning and executing their own research. Faculty works closely with them during all stages of the project, but the ideas and work is their own. The research projects better prepare the students for their careers in engineering and developing their own future research.

Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Intelligent Autonomous Vehicles

This Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) will expose undergraduates to the cutting edge research of intelligent vehicles and engage them in the development of innovative solutions.

Senior Design Projects

All electrical engineering students must complete a senior design project. Students collaborate with other departments to create and build work that reflects the skills they've learned in the classroom. Combining practical and theoretical knowledge, our students' work has gone on to compete in national competitions and influence the Dayton area profusely.

Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs)

Faculty provide a stipend and/or tuition waivers for graduate students to assist with externally funded research projects, which are frequently a source for thesis and dissertation topics.

Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs)

Teaching assistants present lessons for a lab in conjunction with a faculty member's lecture. GTAs teach the lab sections, grade work, and instruct students in the practical application of classroom instruction.

GTAs are required to follow the thesis option for the MSE degree. A faculty research advisor is necessary to apply for open GTA positions.
