Dunwoody Electrical Engineering Degree

Whether focused on tiny electronic components like microchips or huge steam turbine generators that produce electricity, electrical engineers play an integral role in the technologies that power modern life. Employment options range across many industries, including energy, construction, medical, telecommunications, transportation, and computing.

Dunwoody Electrical Engineering degree combines lab and theory so that the engineering principles you learn are reinforced and experienced through hands-on projects. The Electrical Engineering degree program also places an emphasis on systems engineering, which means you enter the profession with the ability to work with engineers and technicians from many different disciplines.

Learn problem-solving skills, work with teams on real projects, and enhance your communications skills.

Small class sizes give you the chance to work closely with experienced instructors and network with your cohort as you move through the program.

Arts & Sciences courses help you understand the core mathematical and scientific principles that all engineering projects grow out of as well as provide you with the communication and critical thinking skills required to succeed in the profession.

During the final year of your Electrical Engineering degree, you will complete a senior project or internship, further preparing you for your career in electrical engineering. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam, the first step in becoming a licensed professional engineer (PE).

Class topics include:

  • Logic and Digital Design
