The electrical engineering major requires students to have a strong background in math and physics, and students take courses in math, basic sciences and fundamentals of electrical and computer engineering.
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology
The bachelor's degree program in electrical engineering technology teaches students the design and installation of electronics, computers and computer networks. Students also learn technical writing and presentation skills. Required coursework includes elements of engineering technology, physics for technology, electronics, technical and professional writing and topics of applied design. Associated laboratory courses are also required.
Miami University, Oxford
Miami University in Oxford has an electrical engineering program offered through the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Bachelor of Science in Engineering - Electrical Engineering
The electrical engineering program covers topics such as engineering mechanics, electronics, digital systems design, data structures and computer networks. Students complete laboratory courses in electric circuits, analog and digital electronics, robotics and computer-integrated virtual manufacturing. Students can participate in co-op programs in which they alternate between periods of employment and periods of academic studies. Co-op students typically complete the program in five years, whereas non-co-op students complete the program in four. Students can also work for a faculty member as a research assistant. Those who wish to enter the workforce upon graduation are encouraged to pursue employment opportunities through internship or co-op programs, whereas those who plan on pursuing graduate studies are encouraged to assist faculty members in conducting research.
