University of California - Los Angeles

The University of California - Los Angeles includes 11 professional and health sciences colleges, including the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science. This school houses the Electrical Engineering Department, which offers seminars and classes in electronics engineering. Students and faculty at this school can conduct research in electronics signal processing, semiconductors and wireless systems.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Students interested in electronics engineering can choose an interdisciplinary track of study in such areas as bioengineering or computer engineering. Besides related coursework in digital systems design, digital signal processing and circuit theory, students also participate in design labs. Other academic requirements include classes in statistics, mathematics and English composition.

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

The master's degree program in electrical engineering is presented similarly to the undergraduate program. Tracks of study students can pursue include circuits and embedded systems, wave and physical electronics, and signals and systems. Students may choose a thesis or non-thesis track, and programs can be tailored to meet specific career goals.

California State University at Long Beach

Located about ten miles from the city of Los Angeles, California State University at Long Beach is home to the College of Engineering. This school also houses the Center of Electronic Design Automation. The college's Electrical Engineering Department offers training in electronics engineering through courses in electronic circuits, electromagnetism and digital logic design.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Students in this program learn about electronics design, mathematics and the physical sciences. This program covers signal processing, controls, communications, analog circuits, power systems and electronic components. These and other topics are integrated within a capstone course focusing on design at the end of the program. The capstone can focus on communications, signal processing or electronics in general.

Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology

This electronics engineering technology program prepares students for careers as electronics technicians, as opposed to engineers. The curriculum focuses on programming, controls, instrumentation and microelectronics. Other topics of study include motors and generators, electronics project design and development, electronic controls, telecommunications and microcomputers. Before graduation, students must complete a 3-month field experience working as electronics technicians.

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering

The graduate degree in electrical engineering allows students to focus on an area of emphasis, including electronics/digital systems. Graduate students may work with an advisor to choose coursework and a degree plan that complements their area of study, such as electronics engineering. Thesis and comprehensive exam options are available.
