Anna & Terry in an EE Lab

Our undergraduate programs in Electrical Engineering and in Biomedical Engineering are distinguished by three attributes.  First, through foundational courses they both develop a core skill set that can be applied to not only problems in electrical and biomedical engineering but to other engineering areas, business, etc.  Second, both programs have a significant hands-on component through laboratory and design experiences that enable you to apply what is learned in classroom.  Finally, both programs allow students ample opportunities to explore their own unique interests as the curriculum is designed to accommodate a great number of technical electives.
