University rank #901 (ARWU) New York City, NY, United States
Union’s electrical engineering program blends study in cutting-edge audio and image processing, wireless communications and nanotechnology with traditional areas such as electronic design, electric circuits, electromagnetics, optics, solid state devices, control systems and communication systems.

Overview

Our electrical engineering majors 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 professor at Union.

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 all hallmarks of our program. All courses are taught by Union College faculty members, and most classes have fewer than 20 students.
