Electrical Engineering, Minor

Electrical engineering (EE) connects the physical world with the information world.  Electrical engineers can apply physics and chemistry in modern nanotechnology devices, can encode and manipulate information in circuits and networks, and can mathematically understand and reason with large amounts of data in real time. Students can pursue an EE minor by completing a six courses that includes the conception, design, analysis, and implementation of devices, circuits, and signal processing.
