School of Science & Engineering

Electrical Engineering

A student working on a circuit board. Electrical Engineering students are exposed to the concepts of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism and how they apply to the generation of power, designing complex electrical systems, and the controlling of electromechanical machines. Students will have the opportunity to see various applications of Electrical Engineering to electronics, power systems, telecommunications, control systems, and advanced signal processing.

What classes will I take?

Among the classes in the 86-hour major are:

  • circuit analysis
  • introduction to engineering: concepts and design
  • calculus
  • computer architecture
  • analog circuit design

What experiences will I have?

Graduates of this program will be given a solid background in the theoretical and applied study of Electrical Engineering, having been exposed to various techniques and instrumentation. Students will also have the opportunity to expand their creative abilities through design courses that challenge them to engineer products with cost and resources in mind. Whether the product is to be deployed in rural Africa, or is being developed by a small start-up firm, materials and cost are becoming increasingly important. The ability of engineers to "be creative with less" is more essential than ever.

What kind of jobs can I anticipate after graduation?

With a degree in Electrical Engineering from Anderson University, students will be well prepared to apply their knowledge to the fields of communication, energy conversion and power delivery, control systems, analog and digital systems, and more.
