Learn to Power the World
Consider where we would be without power plants, televisions, cell phones, and biomedical devices. Consider all the progress still to come in the fields of fiber optics, computers, and robots. The real-world implications of advances in electrical engineering are immense, and the possibilities are endless.
As an electrical engineering major at the University of New Haven, you will study the behavior of electrons in three areas — electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism — as you learn to design, develop, and oversee the operation of electrical and electronic systems.
Through this program, you will:
- Learn to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- Design and conduct experiments, then analyze and interpret data
- Work hands-on in fully equipped, state-of-the-art laboratories
- Master modern techniques, skills, and engineering tools
- Explore the impact of engineering within global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- Design systems, components, and processes to meet specific needs and comply with realistic economic, environmental, social, ethical, and political restraints
- Develop an understanding of society, cultural heritage, and the human condition as it relates to advances in engineering
- Take coursework in a multidisciplinary curriculum that includes physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer programming, and engineering science
- Gain real-world experience through an internship program that often leads to full-time employment after graduation
- Have the opportunity to double major in computer engineering or computer science with just one year of additional study
- Learn from a faculty whose specializations span the most important areas of electrical engineering
