From control systems and digital systems to electrodynamics, magnetics and semiconductors, graduates will find themselves poised for an exciting career in a fast-paced, emerging field. Below are the concentrations for Electrical Engineering.
Control Systems engineering seeks to analyze physical systems – mechanical, electrical, fluidic, chemical, financial and even biological – and design ways to control them. From prototyping a new spacecraft guidance system, to engineering more efficient fuel injection in cars, to designing multi-legged robots for combat, control systems engineers play a critical role in technological innovation.
DIGITAL & HYBRID SYSTEMS
Digital & Hybrid Systems focuses on integrating digital mechanisms to achieve greater interoperability, compatibility, transferability, and scalability in devices. They are the basis of how all technology and information becomes accessible and usable.
Electrodynamics is a branch of physics that studies moving electric charges and their interaction with magnetic and electric fields. Rooted in classic and quantum physics, electrodynamic engineering focuses on developing advanced technology used in space exploration, energy conservation, proton acceleration, and a myriad of other applications.
Magnetics is the study of the magnetic structure within highly permeable, thin strips of alloy for the purposes of applied engineering. Magnetic materials play a critical role in a wide range of industries: automotive, security, medical, IT, and aerospace applications are just a few ways in which magnetics is driving innovation.
Semiconductor devices are solid state devices that exploit the properties of semiconductor materials to improve electronic technology. Semiconductor device engineers can manipulate semiconductor materials to build transistors, capacitors, wires, light-emitting diodes and semiconductor lasers — all of which are integrated into computer chips.
