BS in Electrical Engineering
Electrical engineering powers the world
We flip switches and plug in devices countless times each day, without thinking about how the electricity to power lights and computers gets there.
As a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering student at Trine University, you will learn about the application of electrical energy for practical use.
The degree: Many aspects of electrical engineering
The Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering program is broad-based, covering the main aspects of electrical engineering:
- Generating and delivering power
- Communications and control
- Digital design
This wide range of specialties will allow you to find and explore the electrical engineering aspects that appeal to you.
The experience: Hands-on learning in the skills employers want
In-depth theoretical coverage is enhanced through a significant amount of laboratory experimentation and design, designed to be relevant to current industry practice and demand. You will learn how to use modern test equipment and how to implement and verify the performance of electronic and electrical systems.
You will graduate with not only a wealth of engineering knowledge, but the hands-on experience and skills employers desire.
The result: Readiness for a successful electrical engineering career
Over the past 10 years, more than 90 percent of our graduates have started their first professional career position within six 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 and consumer electronics. Some of our graduates (about 10 percent) decide to go on to graduate school and some work for federal government agencies.
