|Description:||Electrical is a broad classical discipline; both computer engineering and biomedical engineering grew out of electrical engineering. Electrical engineering is focused more heavily on the physical design of elecronics, electromagnetics and communication systems. In addition, power systems, sustainable energy, and computer hardware/software are integrated into the program. There are significant opportunities for specialization in the Electrical Engineering Program.
