This degree is hands-on, industry-oriented and career focused. It blends theory and research with practical engineering fundamentals. Seniors in the program will work on industry sponsored projects as part of the Senior Design Clinic. Nearly 80% of our engineers graduate with internship experience, and more than 40% have worked with a faculty member on research projects outside of the classroom.
Embedded systems, more commonly known as those small computers that help control everything from automobile engines to coffee makers, is a particular focus of the BS in Electrical Engineering (EE) program offered by the University of St. Thomas. From medical devices to aerospace, reseach to technical sales, and from big companies to small, our electrical engineers find success in a broad range of technical fields.
The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org).
