About Electrical Engineering
Electrical engineering is a diverse discipline encompassing some of the smallest man-made objects, transistors for computer chips, as well as communication systems that span the earth and reach out into intergalactic space. The invention of the transistor 50 years ago touched off a technological revolution that continues unabated today, including the development of lasers, fiber optics, microcomputers, satellite communications, control systems, and increasingly sophisticated signal processing algorithms, to name but a few areas.
The faculty of the department enhance their teaching activities with a number of active research programs in such areas as digital signal processing, computer engineering, communications, controls, and photonics. Advanced students are encouraged to participate in these research efforts.
The B.E. (E.E.) program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone (410) 347-7700.
