Overview

Electrical Engineering is a broad field that includes power systems, control systems, microelectronics and nanoelectronics, microprocessors and computer networks, telecommunications (wire, wireless, satellite and fiber optic), remote sensing, signal processing, neural networks, medical devices, optics (electro-optics, optoelectronics and photonics) and other emerging technologies.

Electrical engineers must be prepared to apply fundamental concepts in the applications of new technologies and to contribute to the growth of these technologies. They must also have the skills to communicate their ideas and to manage projects within a schedule and budget. Because of the broad nature of the field, electrical engineers are involved in a wide range of engineering design projects and they must be able to employ knowledge from other disciplines in electrical engineering designs. They must also be prepared to support engineers in other disciplines.

Engineering designs are a team effort and require good communication skills, both oral and written. Therefore it is important that each student develops these necessary communication skills.

The objectives of the Electrical Engineering programme at University of Texas Arlington are to produce graduates who:

  • Advance the mission of their organization by significantly contributing to any of the following disciplines: component and/or system design, R&D, manufacturing, customer support, technical training, sales and marketing.
  • Demonstrate leadership in one or more significant roles since graduation, as evidenced for example by successful entrepreneurship in a start-up, significant promotions and awards in a company or engineering firm.
  • Successfully build on the BSEE degree from UTA by: completing a graduate degree; or taking professional course(s); or earning professional certificate(s).
