Overview

Our Electrical Engineering majors at Union College are part of a long line of distinguished students and professionals. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering was founded in 1902 by Charles Proteus Steinmetz, America's leading engineer at the time and a Union professor.

Students hone their abilities in analytic reasoning, design and problem-solving. Combined with the depth, breadth and flexibility of our liberal arts curriculum, the Electrical Engineering major is a powerful field of study that produces graduates who are highly attractive to employers.

Small classes, integrated studio-format courses and close faculty-student interaction are hallmarks of our program. All courses are taught by Union faculty members, and most classes have fewer than 20 students.
