From Global Positioning Systems to electric power generation, for more than a century electrical engineers have contributed to the development of a wide array of new technologies. Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the deployment of electrical systems and electronic devices for a range of industries.
Students choose between two concentrations. The Electrical Engineering concentration covers a broad range of electrical engineering subdiscplines and allows a student to focus on their particular area of interest using technical electives. Lasers and Optical Engineering focuses on optics and waves, optical electronics, optical information processing, and communications.
