Design and Build Products for People with an Electrical Engineering Degree

If the thought of being able to create complex electronic systems, be involved in robotics and biometrics, and creating electronic devices excites you, then our Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering can give you the knowledge and skills to turn those passions into a career. Electrical engineering applies the principles of electricity, magnetism, and light to design and build products that benefit people.

What can you do with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering? This field 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.

Liberty University’s electrical engineering bachelor’s degree program provides an overview of the foundational principles of electrical engineering with a specific focus on the discipline areas of electromagnetic and electronic circuits. We aim to produce Christ-centered men and women who will go into the workforce with the values, skills, and knowledge essential to be a positive force in electrical engineering-related industries.

*ABET accredits postsecondary degree-granting programs housed within regionally accredited institutions. They accredit programs only, not degrees, departments, colleges, or institutions.

What Will You Learn in Our Electrical Engineering Bachelor’s Degree Program?

In our B.S. in Electrical Engineering degree, you will learn how to apply probability and statistics to electrical engineering. In addition, you will gain knowledge of scientific and mathematical principles necessary to analyze and design complex digital systems. This knowledge will be useful in understanding the creation of electronics and control systems.

We will also cover the basic architecture of computers, as this information and training is vital to a broad understanding of all areas of engineering.  From there you will study the basics of electronic components and control systems. We will also cover how to develop a plan, team dynamics, budgeting, creating a conceptual design, and other factors that are crucial in seeing a design through to completion.
