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: Apply probability and statistics to electrical engineering; describe the design and operation of circuits and industrial-electrical networks; utilize necessary mathematics to analyze an design complex electrical devices; identify, formulate and solve engineering problems; describe and apply professional and ethical responsibility; design and conduct experiments; analyze and interpret data.
At Liberty University School of Engineering and Computational Sciences, the Electrical Engineering program provides an overview of the foundational principles of Electrical Engineering with 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 program 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, student will complete a Senior Capstone Project.
