Electricity has been around since even millions of years ago, when the world was in a cloud of gas. But the raw electricity found in nature in lightning is an uncontrollable power. One day someone captured this in a cable. Since then, countless electrical inventions and discoveries have been made. Those inventors were the first electrical engineers, Edison, Siemens and Westinghouse, people who since became rich and famous.
What Can Electrical and Electronics Engineering Majors Do After Graduation?
You’ll work hand in hand with engineers from different fields and academics from the humanities and social sciences studying the production, control and application of electrical current and electromagnetic waves, investigating and finding solutions for the problems of our time.
You’ll work in the professions of tomorrow, in the fields of renewable energy, communications, nanotechnology and biotechnology.
Also, you might work on applications for automation, industrial planning, signal management and microprocessors.
Using special computer programming in an effective way and understanding the problems found in processes, you’ll come up with new and applicable solutions.
Educational Mission of the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program Outcomes
Graduates of the Electrical Engineering program are grounded in scientific, mathematical, and technical knowledge through coursework that keeps pace with current relevant technologies; they develop the ability to analyze, synthesize, and design engineering systems through their immersion in the problem-based activities of this research university; and, by means of general education courses, they enhance their ability to communicate and acquire an understanding and appreciation for other areas of human intellectual achievement.
Educational Objectives in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
Graduates of the Electrical Engineering program will:
- Engage in professional practice in academia, industry, or government;
- Promote innovation in the design, research and implementation of products and services in the field of Electrical Engineering through strong communication, leadership and entrepreneurial skills;
- Engage in life-long learning in the field of electrical engineering.
(Program educational objectives are those aspects of engineering that help shape the curriculum; achievement of these objectives is a shared responsibility between the student and SEHIR.)
