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.

On Campus

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.

INTERESTING CLASSES YOU'LL TAKE

  • Digital Electronics: The first step on your journey into the world of computing is to learn the basic circuitry underlying all computers.  Digital Electronics is the class where you’ll learn to design logic circuits (including adders, multiplexers, registers, and counters), along with hands-on implementation.
  • Mechatronics: One of the highlights of our curriculum is the introduction you’ll receive to the field of Mechatronics, the intersection of electronics, mechanics, computing, and controls. the foundation of modern automation and robotics. Mechatronics is a highly interdisciplinary and valuable field, the foundation of modern automation and robotics. Engineers working in this area may interact with product design, smart machines, networks, and the Internet of Things.
  •  Power Engineering Lab with Mr. Oscar Ortiz
  • Electric Circuits: The core course for all of Electrical Engineering is Electric Circuits. In this class you’ll study the response of electrical components to steady and sinusoidal voltages. You’ll learn to work with op amps and analyze time-varying responses.
  • Electric Circuits Lab
  • Introduction to Microcontrollers: This course is your introduction to the world of microcontrollers and microprocessors, the “brains” inside most equipment and computers in our modern world. In this class you’ll explore the application of digital circuits and logic concepts to the study of microcontroller functions. You’ll learn to program these devices at the machine level and work with hardware design for applications.

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