Concentration

Engineering: Electrical

Electrical engineering is primarily concerned with the study and application of electricity. Given the widespread use of electricity in our world today, electrical engineers work on a very broad range of applications including consumer electronics, communication devices, computers, microfabrication, factory automation, robotics, medical instrumentation, test equipment, power generation and distribution, electric motors and generators and many others.

Degree



The electrical engineering program is dynamic. It emphasizes both theory and hands-on experience. The hands-on experience you receive here through projects and lab exercises will benefit you with a shorter learning curve on the job which makes you more desirable to employers. Your hands-on experience will culminate in a senior design project. In your senior design project you will work as part of a team. As a member of your team you will be working in a real-world environment; up to and including, reporting to your bosses. This could be your faculty advisor, industry experts, or in most cases the company that has commissioned your design.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

 

LETU's BADGER Robotic Bird Control is building an automated system of long range amphibious bird chasing robots for A&K Systems. Robots will be programmed to identify and chase Canadian Geese from golf courses, parks, and other large areas.

 

 

LETU's Circuits and Measurements Lab is where the students take the theory they are taught in the classrom and use it in real world applications. This allows our students to gain practical knowledge about the engineering profession; in this case electrical engineering.
