Electrical Engineering Major

Electrical engineers contribute to the design of your iPod, your computer, and the generator that energizes your house. They are constantly preparing for the future, working on the next generation of gaming devices and high-speed computer processors. Electrical engineers respond to the earth’s environmental crisis by building more fuel-efficient cars. Ever have an MRI? Electrical engineers help design and build these potentially life-saving devices. And if that’s not enough, they also contribute to our safety by informing intelligence agencies (like the FBI and CIA) of the latest technology breakthroughs.
