An Electrical Engineer applies the principles of electricity, magnetism, and light to design and build products that benefit people.
The field of Electrical Engineering is extremely broad. Electrical engineers are instrumental in the design of communication networks, digital systems, biometrics, integrated circuits, electronics, space vehicles, robots, power supply systems, and much more. Innovation such as satellite communications, cell phones, XM radio, fiber optic networks, radar systems, high-speed microprocessors and neural networks all fall within the domain of the electrical engineer.
Specific outcomes of each program include the ability to:
At Liberty University School of Engineering, the Electrical Engineering program provides an overview of the foundational principles of Electrical Engineering with a specific focus on the discipline areas of Electromagnetic and Electronic Circuits. Our primary goal is to develop Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential to positively influence electrical engineering related industries.
Liberty University’s 134-hour Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering requires students to take 52 hours of coursework in engineering, and another 32 hours in math and science in addition to the general education requirements. Within the major requirements, the student will complete a Senior Capstone Project.
The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
ABET accredits postsecondary degree-granting programs housed within regionally accredited institutions. They accredit programs only, not degrees, departments, colleges, or institutions.
