Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering is an ever-evolving field that is constantly bringing new technologies to benefit society. These innovative problem solvers use electricity, electronics and electromagnetism to confront challenges in health, energy, and safety. Today’s society thrives on electronic systems that vary in size and complexity: from hairdryers and solar panels to lighting systems and power plants. This means that as an electrical engineer, you can impact the future of the very technology that makes our modern lives possible. You could do anything from inventing a life-saving surgical implant to designing smart grids that power cities.
