What I love about EE is how it can be applied to any field – really any modern technology is going to need an electrical engineer to help build it! And that means that my professors have all come from a variety of backgrounds, from the medical field to quantum computing.

– Michelle, Class of 2018
My EE classes have been hands on from day one. Whether testing circuits on oscilloscopes, building projects with an Arduino, or designing a custom PCB (printed circuit board), I’ve been able to see the theory from lecture in action.
– Shayna, Class of 2019

Design teams are the perfect combination of hands on and theoretical. By combining and applying students skills, design teams allow students to transform their creative ideas into something great for the public.

Design Teams
Entrepreneurial student organizations take the initiative to empowering students to realize their innovative potential. They encourage creative thinking, independence and often organize events to connect students to startup or smaller companies looking for talent.

Entrepreneurship
Professional student organizations provide students to not only network with other engineering students with similar interests but also graduate students, professors and industry representatives. These organizations often inform students the possible opportunities available after graduation through a variety of networking events.
