Electrical Engineers pioneer novel solutions, design faster systems, and maximize reliability and safety. Every high-tech innovation has counted on Electrical Engineers to lead the way. Computers are embedded in an incredible range of modern products: cell phones, cameras, games, appliances, cars, airplanes, spacecraft, medical and military equipment—and that means just about every industry needs Computer Engineers.
Engineering for the Real World
If you think Electrical Engineers are basically highly paid electricians, it's time to get the big picture. The field includes a vast array of specialties in everything from wireless communication to electric machines to power electronics to alternative energy systems. Computer Engineers really understand computers. They know how to design them, using millions of transistors squeezed onto a chip of silicon smaller than a postage stamp. And they know to program them to do a job.
The Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
