Electrical engineers design systems that are everywhere, from cell phones to the satellite systems that deliver entertainment to our homes. The Electrical Engineering program at Penn State Behrend educates students to become problem-solvers who are well-versed in the design, analysis, and operation of electrical systems.
The Electrical Engineering program provides a strong foundation through a combination of classroom study and laboratory work. This prepares students for an electrical engineering career or for further study at the graduate level. In their senior year, students work in small teams with individual faculty to complete capstone design projects. Most projects are sponsored by industry partners, giving students the opportunity to work on industry projects while completing their education.
