Electrical Engineering Department

Chairman: Dr. Navarun Gupta

The Electrical Engineering department at the University of Bridgeport offers an undergraduate degree and graduate degree to help meet the growing need for engineers. At UB, students will gain knowledge in the areas and competencies necessary to be successful in electrical engineering, while also having the opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge in areas such as Communications, Control Systems, Electronics and Digital Processing.

Students in our master’s degree program have the option to choose from several concentration areas. In addition, the department also offers the opportunity to acquire dual graduate degrees along with the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering. Candidates for these dual Master’s degree programs are typically required to complete a total of 48 credit hours to satisfy the requirements of two Masters degrees. This implies 15 credit hours in addition to the 30 hours required for the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering. Please refer to the Graduate Studies Division catalog pages for detailed information on Dual Graduate Degree programs.

Mission Statement of the Electrical Engineering Department

The department’s mission is to provide an intellectually stimulating environment preparing our students to be leaders in industry, government, and academia.  The department promotes academic excellence and scholarly research at the frontiers of electrical engineering through a rigorous curriculum of theory and an interdisciplinary, application-oriented approach. We strive to prepare our students for professional careers and advanced studies. We are committed to creating awareness of ethical responsibilities to the profession and to society.
