Professor and Chair, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering

A Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering is a professional degree program that prepares students for careers in a variety of industries. The degree provides students with the necessary technical and managerial skills to enter the workforce in the design application, installation, manufacturing, operation and maintenance of electrical systems. Students gain hands-on experience throughout the program and learn the foundational electronics, mathematics, physics, communications control systems and computing necessary to solve real-world problems in an ethical and socially-responsible manner. Students will learn the skills necessary to build, manufacture, operate, maintain and improve complex electrical systems. Graduates will have strong communication skills and are capable of communicating with a range of audiences, as well the ability to work as a productive member of an interdisciplinary team.
