Bachelor of Science-Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering has changed the way people around the world lead their daily lives.  This discipline is concerned with the design of circuits and devices to collect, elaborate, store, transfer and display information in electrical form. Electrical Engineering covers a diverse range of areas e.g., control systems, medical devices, personal computers and networks, high-speed telecommunications devices, multi-media entertainment, and aerospace systems. Therefore, an electrical engineer can design a broad range of devices in a wide spectrum of applications.

Electrical Engineering is a field with diverse challenges and many opportunities.  Advances in the technological sector have increased the opportunities for Electrical Engineers as new electronic devices, materials and products are developed and brought to market.  Increasing globalization has created new markets and new opportunities around the world, and thus an Electrical Engineer is now globally marketable. Therefore, career prospects for new graduates in Electrical Engineering are excellent.  A report published by the National Science Foundation in December 2005 indicates that the national average annual salary for Electrical/Computer Engineering graduates is one of the highest at the BS degree level.  A degree in Electrical Engineering is therefore an excellent stepping stone to an intellectually and financially rewarding career in design, development, or research.  Electrical Engineering also opens doors to other areas of industry such as management, sales and marketing, as well as to other professions, e.g., medicine, law, and business.
