Electrical Engineering

Credential Earned: Bachelor of Science

Program Description

The Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering program studies how electrical power is generated and distributed through power grid systems, as well as, the installation of electrical components to deliver that power to the residential, commercial and industrial sectors. The students learn and perform lab work in electrical codes, wire management, electrical blueprints, programmable logic control and industrial motors for the purposes of power delivery. 

Students gain a solid foundation in mathematics and physics to understand the theoretical aspects of electrical power and the application of those subjects in the field of power generation and electrical transformers. Students study robotics and industrial applications which include various sensor types, controllers, interfacing circuits, and I/O allocation pertinent to the manufacturing and private market industries. Students take general education courses to help them develop the critical thinking abilities necessary to fill responsible leadership positions. Graduates gain the knowledge and skills to prepare them for entry-level employment in the electrical engineering field. Electrical engineering technicians have jobs in many industries. 

The design, development, testing, and manufacturing of electrical and electronic equipment are a few of the jobs that electrical engineering careers might provide. These specialized technicians also evaluate, diagnose, and/or repair electrical equipment.
