From nanoscale electronic devices to the U.S. electric power grid, the electrical engineering program at ASU prepares students for careers in areas including energy production and distribution, information processing and management, healthcare technology and delivery, global sustainable development, economic growth and security and communications and data networking.
The program’s award–winning faculty guides students through fundamental engineering courses along with specialty courses in analog and digital circuits, electromagnetic fields, microprocessors, communications networks, solid–state electronics and electric power and energy systems.
Our program integrates the fundamentals with practical real–world experience in an online environment. Labs incorporate a combination of practical hardware along with industry–standard design and simulation tools to provide students with the applied skills needed in today’s global engineering environment.
“Our faculty are committed to use-inspired research and globally relevant academic programming. This degree program is reflective of the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of the electrical engineering industry, preparing graduates to pursue solutions to challenges in a wide range of sectors from healthcare to energy to security.”
