Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering is the application of physics toward the use and understanding of how this can be used to serve humankind. It is incorporated into all fields of engineering through measurement devices and equipment, electronic control systems, visual displays, and remote monitoring. Electrical engineers are major contributors in the design of technologically advanced systems that include commercial applications, space exploration, national defense, scientific discovery, and medical technology.

CUA's Department of Electrical Engineering provides students with the ability to effectively treat complex electrical/electronic systems and signals in terms of experimentation, interpretation and analysis of data. Additionally, students are able to understand the global impact of engineering solutions to gain knowledge of contemporary issues that apply to their field.
