Strengths of the Electrical Engineering program offered by Washington State University

  • Join other science, math, and engineering students in WSU Pullman’s Stephenson residence hall — share classes with your neighbors, study together, get free tutoring, and use the hall’s computer lab.
  • Solid theory foundations and hands-on learning experiences make WSU graduates highly sought by employers.
  • Receive assistance on career goals with the engineering school’s industrial advisory board and numerous internship and career contacts.
  • Assist faculty in research on microelectronics, electromagnetics, communications and signal processing, power systems, integrated circuit design, and computer engineering.
  • Use state-of-the-art laboratories to study computer systems, high-voltage systems, wireless communications, signal processing, circuits, and protective power relay systems.


A bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering prepares students for careers in the design, analysis, and improvement of electrical, electronic, or computer-based systems. Specific areas include power systems, electromagnetics, systems and control, solid state electronics, communications and signal processing, and radio frequency engineering and wireless communications.

Some Northwest companies that frequently hire WSU electrical engineering students for internships and career positions are Boeing, Hewlett-Packard, Battelle, Motorola, Tektronix, Intel, and the Bonneville Power Administration.
