Undergraduate Program

Why Study Electrical Engineering at LU?

  • Lamar ranks #5 in the nation for return on investment for engineering programs according to Payscale.
  • Typically, greater than half of our graduating seniors have done a co-op or internship with a company, increasing their success rate after graduation.
  • Electrical Engineering is a great career with median pay of $99,070 per year.
  • Faculty members in all areas of Electrical Engineering including Electronics, Computer Engineering, Telecommunications, Power & Energy, Instrumentation & Control and Robotics.
  • We use the Digital eLearning Content Delivery System, which makes our program hybrid. While our hybrid program is considered face-to-face, it allows (via the distance option) our students to be off-campus as needed so that they can participate in internships, co-ops, or full-time jobs without delaying completion of their degree.
  • We offer hands-on lab experiences in every one of our courses, which means that our grads have more practical lab activity than at any other school, something that many employers value in LU electrical engineers.
  • We are an ABET-accredited program with a traditionally lower student-to-faculty ratio.
