The overall objective of the Electrical Engineering Program is for our graduates to become successful professionals in a diverse, global environment, and to be able to innovate and operate new technologies, and adapt to shifting technologies, in whatever career path they choose to pursue. This includes careers in electrical engineering through employment in industry, government or private practices, as well as careers in other engineering, science, or professional disciplines such as bioengineering, computer engineering, computer science, business, law, or medicine. Our graduates will also pursue advanced study in electrical engineering or other engineering, science, or professional fields and be able to serve in leadership positions in academia, industry or government.

Undergraduate students at the Swanson School of Engineering may choose to pursue a concentration in electric power, enhancing their education with deeper learning in the subject. A diverse selection of power courses are available at the undergraduate level, covering all aspects of the electric power system.
