What Can I Do With A Major In…
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
General Information:
Electrical Engineering is a broad-based and rapidly growing field that encompasses everything
from batteries and power supplies to microchip fabrication to the invention of autonomous robots
and devices that can recognize human speech. Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and
supervise the manufacturing of electrical equipment. Our society depends upon electrical engineers
for computer chips, microprocessors, radar systems, electric utilities, machinery controls, lighting,
aerospace navigation systems, wiring in buildings and wiring in autos. As an electrical engineer, you
might work on robotics, computer networks, wireless communications, or medical imaging—areas
that are at the very forefront of technological innovation.
The Bachelor of Innovation in Electrical Engineering provides students with both the technical
and business background to work on innovative electrical engineering related projects.
