Bachelor of Science (BS) in Electrical Engineering
Earn a bachelor of science in Electrical Engineering, be the power behind the machine.
As an electrical engineering student, you'll develop the skills necessary for a wide range of electrical engineering jobs, including design, analysis, and testing of electrical systems. You will study circuit design and simulation, digital signal processing, microcontrollers, digital circuit design, and communication systems. Potential employers include Lockheed Martin, Intel, Texas Instruments, Boeing, IBM, Tesla, Google, Apple, and many others.The program is a blend of theory and practice directed at engineering design, rather than research.
As you progress through the program, more theoretical methods of circuit modeling and computer-aided circuit simulation tools are taught, enabling you to design, build, test and analyze sophisticated circuits and systems. You can keep your engineering education broad-based or specialize in areas such as telecommunications, digital signal processing, integrated circuit design and control theory.
The program provides the essential knowledge to enter into the electrical engineering industry with careers, such as:
- Electrical Engineer - average salary, $75,2191
- Design Engineer - average salary, $67,6071
- Integration Engineer - average salary, $85,4441

Capitol Tech Opportunities
Collaborate with other students and work on student-created, student-led projects in our Fusion Lab. Here, multiple 3-D printers, a 1.4-watt laser and computers pre-loaded with modeling software are at your disposal to work on picosatellite shell development and creation, high altitude balloon payload projects and other activities.
Team-Oriented, Multidisciplinary Projects
Professionals from all backgrounds collaborate in the real-world, so we’ve structured our labs to operate the same way. Students majoring in electrical engineering, cybersecurity, astronautical engineering and others all form teams to collaborate, trouble-shoot and explore what’s possible in our labs.
You have the chance to showcase your classroom knowledge in your capstone project, which is required for graduation. Depending on your major, this could be writing a report and giving an oral presentation or building, designing and testing a working prototype.
Co-Ops and Internships
An internship is an essential first step to launching your career. Our reputation helps to open doors, plus our career services office provides guidance on how to write a resume to career-related events and much more.
