Electrical Engineering

Design electrifying new products, from wireless microcomputers to high voltage energy systems

Electrical engineering involves the design and development of electrical circuits, power and control systems, electronic components, computer architecture, and embedded software.  Electrical engineers are employed in a wide variety of occupations, ranging from power distribution to wireless communication networks to factory automation systems.   

Studying electrical and computer engineering at USI allows the student to have a hands-on experience with smaller class sizes. As part of the ECE program at USI, you will have the opportunity to experience the various topics of circuits, microprocessors, embedded systems, signal processing, power, and control.  Most electrical and computer engineering courses have both lecture and lab components, allowing for a solid mix between fundamental theory and hands-on experience. Furthermore, students have many opportunities to engage in projects both inside and outside of class. Most students have some internship or co-op experience upon completion of the program. Faculty are highly engaged with the students and focused on student success.  

USI's engineering courses are taught by experienced faculty — never from graduate students. In addition, our degree programs offer unique opportunities for you to tackle real-world engineering challenges, both in and out of the classroom. The highlights include:  

  • Applied Engineering Center, an innovative facility equipped with $3.3M of custom-made manufacturing and engineering equipment. 
  • Center for Applied Research and Economic Development, which facilitates real-world interactions between industry and students to solve real engineering problems.
  • Technology Commercialization Academy, a partnership with the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center (Crane Division) to bring emerging technology to market.
  • Small class sizes, in which you know your professors and they know you.
  • Co-op engineering program, where you'll combine work and study with a professional engineering firm.  

  • Student competition teams in a wide variety of specializations.
