Electrical Engineering


BS Electrical Engineering Trine University Student Achievements

If you want to work in a field that touches on nearly every aspect of our connected communities and world, the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSE) is for you. What do electrical engineers do? A better question might be, what do they not do? With your BSE, you will be prepared for a career in areas as diverse as:

  • Energy production and distribution
  • Healthcare technology and delivery
  • Global sustainable development
  • Economic growth and security
  • Communications and data networking
  • Information processing and management

Major in electrical engineering; master in-demand skill sets.

Our degree program is broad-based and covers the main aspects of electrical engineering, better preparing you with the broad range of high-ranking skill sets employers from many fields of technology are looking for:

  • Generating and delivering power
  • Communications
  • Controls
  • Instrumentation

This wide range of specialties will allow you to find and explore the aspects of electrical engineering that appeal to you. Learn more about the electrical engineering degree requirements.

Time in the lab provides relevant experience to real-world electrical engineering jobs.

As well as providing in-depth theoretical coverage, you will gain time in the laboratory with hands-on practice with experimentation and design. You will spend a significant amount of time in the laboratory, learning how to use modern test equipment and how to implement and verify the performance of electronic and electrical systems. With a BSE you will gain immersive and relevant lab experiences.

Electrical engineering graduates get more than jobs; they launch long-lasting careers.

When you graduate with a degree in electrical engineering from Trine, you will join the successful ranks of many other Trine graduates, 90 percent who, over the past 10 years, have started their first professional career position within nine months of graduation. Many have their first job arranged before they graduate. Most of our graduates go into the commercial world in industries such as:

  • Aerospace
  • Transportation
  • Utilities
  • Consumer electronics
  • Federal government agencies

Ten percent of our graduates decide to go on to graduate school. If this sounds like you, learn more about our Master of Science in engineering management.
