About the B.S. in Electrical Engineering
The undergraduate Electrical Engineering program at the University of Bridgeport prepares students for a career in Electrical Engineering in any of its specializations such as communications, power/renewable energy, signals and systems and VLSI/ electronics. The program includes analysis and design courses that need a strong background in mathematics and science.
Electrical Engineering is one of the largest discipline in engineering which deals with power, controls, signals and systems, materials, communications, micro-nano electronics and more. The Electrical Engineering curriculum at UB prepares our students to be skilled problem solvers, ready for a multitude of career opportunities. Our gradates work in public and private sectors, for almost every industry imaginable, including e-commerce, communication, health-care, the space industry, defense, home-land security, renewable energy and technology startups.
Design and problem solving form the heart of the discipline and a variety of computer aided design (CAD) tools are utilized to facilitate problem-based learning and implementation. The graduate of this program will obtain the basic education in the first three years. The senior year is utilized to explore specific areas of interest. A total of 120 semester hours are required to complete the degree.
Students pursuing their degree at ABET accredited EE program benefit from:
- The education with the integration of the practice of engineering design throughout the curriculum.
- The interdisciplinary curriculum addressing a growing demand for professionals who have both strong discipline-specific knowledge and substantial competency in Computer Science* and Computer Engineering**.
- Opportunities for project-based learning and the availability of cutting-edge tools and laboratories
- Elective tracks that allow targeted learning within following four unique subject areas:
• Microelectronics and VLSI Design
• Signal Processing and Communications
• Controls and PLC
• Power and Renewable Energy
- A rich array of on-campus clubs and societies in which engineering students may pursue their interests outside the classroom
