Electrical engineers (EEs) work with technology to design a broad range of devices and systems. From electrical power grids that supply homes and industry with electricity to systems that deliver telephone, radio, television, network and space communications, EEs design the computers that affect almost all of our modern lifestyles.

Often overlapping with computer engineering, a college degree in electrical engineering can open up the door to a technical career in almost any industry. Since technology is always changing and expanding, the need for electrical engineers is always growing.

The Phillip M. Drayer Department of Electrical Engineering now offers two certificate programs for undergraduate (Instrumentation & Control) and graduate students (Power & Energy).
