The Electrical Engineering program offered by Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania focuses on electrical devices, their theory of operation, and the related science. The program combines advanced physics, including courses in electricity and magnetism, quantum physics, electronics, and semiconductors. The program includes advanced study in non-linear electronics, micro-controllers, control systems, signals and systems, digital logic and reconfigurable computing. Graduates of the program will be well prepared to develop electronic systems for industry or government applications; and be prepared to purse advanced study at the graduate level.

Students will learn about the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and social context. Graduates will have an ability to use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice, and will engage in life-long learning to continue developing their skills and knowledge of the practice.

The program at Ship will provide sufficient skills for students to pursue their careers as computer engineers; or they may easily transition into any of the careers followed by computer science generalists. Additionally, students will be well qualified for further study in a post-baccalaureate program.

Careers in Electrical Engineering

Demand for electrical engineers is growing, driven by the rapid pace of technological innovation and development. This is particularly true in the area of research and development. Ship students have plenty of opportunities to gain hands-on experience through internships, recruitment, and participation in research projects through department partnerships with regional industries.

Graduates will have the skills necessary to design, build, test, and manage complex systems, skills that are in increasing demand in Pennsylvania and the surrounding region.
