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 give students a hands on opportunity to apply the material they learn in the classroom to a real project. By combining and applying students skills, design teams allow students to transform their creative ideas into something great.

Design Teams

Entrepreneurial student organizations take empower students to realize their innovative potential. They encourage creative thinking, independence and organize events to connect students with startups or smaller companies looking for talent.


Professional student organizations provide students the opportunity not only network with other engineering students, but also graduate students, professors and industry representatives. These organizations often inform students about the possible opportunities available after graduation through a variety of career oriented events.
