Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineers are developing the next generation of microprocessors, signal processing algorithms for DNA-matching, and ground-penetrating radars for detecting hazardous wastes. 

Electrical engineering students at Northeastern study microelectronics, signal processing, power electronics and electromagnetics, fundamental elements of today's information age that provide the tools that make these advances possible. As an EE student, you will build the strong foundation in science and mathematics necessary to succeed as an engineer. 

Students with an EE degree are aggressively recruited by employers across the country, and the demand for electrical engineers is expected to increase in the next decade. Whether you want to work in chip fabrication, telecommunications, or radar system development, you can expect to find a wide range of employment opportunities throughout your career.
