Electrical and Electronics Engineering Major

An Electrical and Electronics Engineering major/degree program prepares individuals to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the design, development and operational evaluation of electrical and electronic systems and their components, including electrical power generation systems; and the analysis of problems such as superconductor, wave propagation, energy storage and retrieval, and reception and amplification.

Includes instruction in core disciplines such as control systems, communications, micro-processors, radio frequency design, signal processing, electric machines and power generation.

What can you do with a major/degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering?

The work of electrical engineers and electronics engineers is very similar. In either capacity, you will likely use engineering and design software and equipment to carry out engineering tasks. As well, both work with other engineers to discuss existing products and possibilities for engineering projects.

Trade Associations and Professional Organizations in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Professional associations are groups of specialists dedicated to topics in particular fields. Professional associations provide a wealth of online resources, some of which are geared specifically towards students. These organizations typically also host conferences and events, providing great opportunities for learning and networking across your field of interest.
