Design in Electrical Engineering

Design is interwoven throughout the electrical engineering curriculum, culminating in a formal senior design project course. Freshman and sophomore engineering courses provide an introduction to design. The two junior and first-semester senior laboratory courses extend this design experience to the integration of material from the upper division electrical engineering courses. Finally, the senior design project experience builds on the analytical and theoretical background developed throughout the curriculum as well as topics covered in the University's core curriculum.
