Electrical Engineering


Electrical Engineering (EE) has changed the way people around the world lead their daily lives. This discipline is concerned with the design of circuits and devices to collect, elaborate, store, transfer and display information in electrical form. Electrical Engineering covers a diverse, yet broad, range of areas including control systems, medical devices, personal computers and networks, high-speed telecommunications devices, multi-media entertainment, and aerospace systems. Therefore, an electrical engineer can design a broad range of devices in a wide spectrum of applications.

As a student enrolled in our EE program, you can expect to perform hands-on experiments in several lab-courses designed to strengthen the theoretical knowledge acquired in regular courses. While we provide opportunities typical of large universities, students experience the typical small campus feel. Indeed, students here are known by their names, not by their ID. Our small class sizes encourage interaction among students and faculty, and our staff strives to meeting students’ individual needs. 

In our program, students learn scientific and engineering principles across the main emphases areas of Electrical Engineering including hardware design, signal processing, controls and power. Required courses in the major are structured so as to give a broad overview of the main subfields within EE, while electives provide a solid specialization in specific areas of student interest. Our EE students master the ability to apply and integrate knowledge from a variety of courses in the major with the ultimate goal to design electrical systems with realistic constraints. Our EE curriculum culminates with a real-world design project in Senior Design I and Senior Design II, often developed under the supervision of our industrial partners.

Our faculty is composed of highly qualified and internationally known scientists with educational as well as research experience in Ph.D. granting universities. TAMUT EE students have the opportunity to work with faculty in several areas of academic interest. Talented students receive a stipend to participate in undergraduate research and present their findings in national conferences.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, a graduate with a BS in Electrical Engineering can expect a median wage of $89,630 per year with little or none previous work experience.

Job opportunities in this field are expansive and growing by virtue of electrical engineers’ versatility in adapting to new and emerging technologies. Indeed, graduate placement has been 100% since the start of the program. Almost 4 out of 5 EE senior students already have internship in local companies.

We welcome you to our program; You are just a step away from a rewarding career!
