Electrical Engineering is an exciting field involving the design, fabrication, and measurement of devices and systems for applications ranging from information sciences to healthcare. Careers in Electrical Engineering are diverse, including the design of devices and circuits, the automation and adaptive control of complex systems, and the manipulation and processing of images and signals for a variety of applications within information sciences, homeland defense, health-care and environmental monitoring systems. Areas of study and research opportunities are available in the areas of automatic controls, digital systems, VLSI circuit design, design automation, solid state devices, microsystems, microfabrication, nanotechnology, communications, microwave systems, signal processing, and reliable system design and analysis.
Required credits, degree requirements and course requirements
The Electrical Engineering program offers the Master of Engineering (ME), Master of Science (MS), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in electrical engineering. The selection of a degree program depends upon the interest and background of each individual.
The department also offers a part-time online program, Virginia Engineering Online (VEO), in which an employed engineer is able to work toward a Master’s degree in electrical engineering with a minimum of absence from work.) These courses are also available to those who wish to increase their knowledge of electrical engineering but do not wish to enroll in a formal degree program.
