Electrical engineering is at the heart of modern technology and innovation from computers to health care, electronics, space technology, musical systems, cars, robotics, biomedical devices, and energy/power systems. Electrical engineers are striving to make components smaller, faster, more energy efficient and less costly. Electrical engineering drives modern society as we know it (transistors, electronics, chips, fiber optics), and is the answer to improving the standard of living on a global scale—whether through tackling energy (solar cells, grid integration, efficient lighting, and electric vehicles through nanotechnology, systems, and control engineering), or treating diseases such as Parkinson's and cancer (neural probes and microsystems, lasers and optics).

Electrical engineers help us navigate the stars, track weather and improve food production (through radar, antennas, remote sensing); they keep us connected (through communications devices and signal processing, fiber optics, computer hardware), and they provide sensors for environmental, biomedical, and security applications (MEMS and microsystems, electromagnetics, and systems).

Electrical engineering majors are among the top requested majors by potential employers because of their versatility. A degree in EE will provide the fundamentals for virtually any job in engineering or technology management, and is the pathway to many exciting careers throughout your lifetime.
