Electrical engineers are concerned with electrical devices and systems and with the use of electrical energy. Virtually every industry utilizes electrical engineers, so employment opportunities are extensive. The work of electrical engineers can be seen in the entertainment systems in our homes, in the computers used by businesses, in numerically-controlled machines used by manufacturing companies, and in the early warning systems used by the federal government to ensure our national security.

Electrical engineering students typically specialize in one of these areas: computers, electronics, communications, power, controls and instrumentation. For more information on Electrical Engineering contact the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (see link at left).

To pursue Electrical Engineering you should work with an  Engineering Faculty Advisor (see below) as soon as possible to develop a plan of study leading to the Associate of Science Degree. It is especially critical to meet with a faculty advisor if you tested into a math class lower than MATH& 151 or an English class lower than ENGL& 101, or if you haven't had high school chemistry or physics. If you haven't yet taken the Accuplacer test for placement contact the Student Entry Advising Center as soon as possible, but BEFORE contacting the faculty advisor.
