We live in a high-tech society, and Electrical Engineers are among the largest, most diverse and dynamic contributors to our technological advancements. Electrical Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to practical use in instrumentation and circuit design, microelectronics, signal processing, telecommunications, machine control, and power generation and distribution.
Engineering students at The University of Scranton receive the benefits of a liberal arts curriculum which focuses on writing, communication, and critical thinking. The technical core of the Electrical Engineering program emphasizes theoretical and laboratory skills, hardware and software skills, simulation and design. Upper division courses include circuit analysis, solid state devices, control systems, communications, digital signal processing, computer interfacing, and digital systems. Design projects support student learning throughout all four years. The Electrical Engineering program culminates in a yearlong capstone senior project where each student must design and implement an autonomous, multidisciplinary project that solves a current technological problem facing society incorporating the scientific, engineering, project management and ethical principles they have acquired during their undergraduate education.
Graduates of our Electrical Engineering program have challenging and rewarding careers in such diverse fields as biomedical instrumentation, semiconductor fabrication, power industries, pharmaceutical manufacturing, patent law, defense, and national security programs.
