From the billions of transistor chips inside our computers to the massive power grids that supply power to our communities and cities,
Electrical engineers design, deploy and maintain these remarkable and complex systems. Electrical and Electronics engineers are responsible for designing, building, and maintaining electrical devices and networks that power our world and impacting every segment of our society, from agriculture to modern mobility.
The electrical Engineering curriculum provides a solid fundamental background in the engineering sciences, mathematics, analog and digital electronics, microprocessors, controls, embedded systems, design, modeling, coding, electrical machines, and power systems. This background is strengthened with laboratories with hands-on experience and design courses. In the senior years, students can choose specializations within the program in Power Systems, Embedded Systems, VLSI, or Electrical Vehicles.
The curriculum emphasizes building strong computer skills required for electrical & electronics engineers. The coursework is complemented with interventions to sharpen or develop soft skills like communication, teamwork, interpersonal skills, and critical thinking, which are essential for a successful career. From the first to the final year, students have opportunities to carry out several projects in which student teams, working with faculty/industry mentors, put their knowledge to work on a real-world issue to find innovative solutions to engineering problems. The program also offers the option of doing an internship with industry or research labs.
