Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering is the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism toward the design of new and better electronics and electronic systems. Students earning an electrical engineering degree may specialize in unique career-track subfields such as electromagnetics, physical electronics, systems and information processing, or wireless systems.

Whether you want to invent and patent new technologies, design laser scanning systems or engineer electronic solutions to modern problems, an electrical engineering degree from Florida Tech develops a strong background in engineering with hands-on experience in software simulation and analysis.

Florida Tech is listed among the Fiske Guide's "Engineering/Top Technical Institutes" and Parade Magazine's College A-List in Engineering, and accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Gain Practical Experience

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is the second largest in the College of Engineering. Electrical engineering degree students have access to more than 10,000 square feet of high-tech research lab space. Integrated lab experiences give students training and time with the latest fiber optics, microelectronics, analytical instrumentation and design software.

Electrical engineering students may expect small classes and the opportunity to work closely with faculty in the classroom. The program's reputation and proximity to a variety of high-tech companies means you can also expect to find a great internship and build valuable on-the-job experience. As a senior you'll complete a design project in collaboration with a team of your peers on a complex engineering system.

Build Professional Relationships

Beyond the classroom, students earning an electrical engineering degree build leadership and professional experience through exciting internships and participation in academic organizations like Tau Beta Pi (engineering honor society), the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, student government and over 100 other student organizations.

Get Recruited Upon Graduation

Employers seek out graduates with an electrical engineering degree from Florida Tech. Employers that have recruited our students for internships and careers include Boeing, IBM, GE, Harris Corp., Microsoft, Rockwell-Collins and Northrop Grumman.

Earn an Advanced Degree

After receiving their electrical engineering degree, many of our students go on to graduate school at universities such as Florida Tech, Stanford University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Cal Tech.
