What is Electrical Engineering?
Electrical Engineering is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) field that focuses on designing, manufacturing, and testing of electrical and electronic equipment. In this field, students learn the theoretical and experimental skills required for digital signal processing, control systems, telecommunications, microelectronics, microprocessors, power systems, mechatronics, and electromagnetics.
Why Choose Electrical Engineering at UCO?
The UCO Department of Engineering and Physics prepares graduates for responsible engineering positions in design, development, testing, production, and operation in fields of communication, control systems, digital signal processing, electronic circuits, microprocessors, mechatronics, and power systems. Our student-focused, multi-disciplinary, and hands-on approach to engineering education produces graduates who are readily employed in industry, government agencies, and academia. The career potential in electrical engineering remains excellent.
EP - Electrical Engineering at UCO
Through the Bachelor of Science degree program in EP – Electrical Engineering, dedicated faculty members guide student learning through a program curriculum featuring; small classes, hands-on experience, modern equipment, excellent laboratory facilities, and the opportunity to participate in undergraduate research. Specialization is accommodated through courses such as digital electronics, digital signal processing, digital and analog communication, semiconductor devices, and control systems. Students in Electrical Engineering often either go directly to work as engineers in industry or attend graduate school in electrical engineering.
