Electrical Engineering

UA’s electrical engineering program prepares students for dynamic careers in the varied areas of power generation, communication systems, manufacturing controls, signals processing, and control systems.

The first year students are integrated through the Freshman Engineering Program and are introduced to basic courses in mathematics and physical science, broadening courses in humanities and social science, and foundation courses in engineering. The following two years provide the core education in electrical engineering, with courses in computers, electronics, circuits, systems and electromagnetics. The last year of study includes technical electives to allow students to concentrate in selected areas of the discipline. For seniors, the department offers advanced courses in computers, communication, control, electromagnetics, microelectronics, materials and power.

Students must select two electrical engineering electives with labs. The elective areas are computers, microelectronics, electromagnetics, power systems, communication systems and control systems.
