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.

On Campus


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.

LETU's autonomous robotics team designs and builds their own robot each year to enter into the IEEE Region 5 Robotics Competition.Each year, the robot is designed to complete a designated task 100% autonomously.

The team's robot took home first prize in the 2014 region 5 IEEE robotics competition, while competing against several prominent engineering schools. 

The goal of the Electronic Access Computer Station team is to design an electronic control system to automate a computer station's vertical door system for hospital-hallway application sponsored by CCI group Inc.

This system will provide hands free access to the computers. The design should be cost efficient and practical for mass production.
