University rank #801 (QS) , FL,
Electrical Engineering is concerned with the design, analysis and implementation of a variety of systems, components and devices, primarily of an electrical or electronic nature, which form the cornerstone of our complex and technologically oriented society. 

About

Electrical engineering also involves the design of micro and nano devices, integrated circuits, hardware, and large-scale systems for telecommunications and networking that engender our increasingly networked life. Therefore, electrical engineering is a vast and rich discipline involved in the design of systems, components, and devices for a variety of applications and areas such as portable electronics (e.g., cell phones), communications and networks, biomedical sensing and medical systems, energy harvesting, next generation displays, lasers, optical and wireless transmission, audio/video compression and recognition, radar and tracking/guidance systems, and remote sensing systems.

The University of Miami’s electrical engineering curriculum is focused on the fundamentals of the discipline, in the first two years building a firm foundation in mathematics, basic science, and basic engineering principles such as basic circuits, electronics, software and programming, computer hardware, and signal and system analysis. The students build upon this foundation through more advanced courses and focused specialization, culminating in a capstone major design experience. We continually update our curriculum and laboratories to incorporate new scientific and technological developments, and industry practices. Our graduates have gone on to successful careers in industry, or to graduate school in science and engineering, as well as law school, business school, and medical school.
