What is Electrical Engineering?

We innovate. Imagine a world where humans have established a base station on the moon and launched a mission to Mars. Think of a place where renewable energy sources supply most of our electric power needs and electric vehicles roam the roads. Picture a future where 6G communication make digital transmission of data faster, where new electrical materials increase the resolution of smartphone cameras, and wearable electronics monitor our health condition in real-time. As an electrical engineer, you will be empowered to make these visions reality.

The U of A’s innovative Electrical Engineering program has been designed to empower students during their time on campus while preparing them for bright futures in the field. After mastering the foundational elements of the discipline, our students have the opportunity to specialize in an exciting range of applications, such as developing better electronic materials, better tools for breast cancer diagnosis, building communication algorithms and hardware, designing electronic interfaces for renewable energy sources and electric vehicles, and engineering analog and digital integrated circuits.From an excellent student-to-faculty ratio to ample hands-on learning and well-funded undergraduate research opportunities, the EE program is engineered for you. Come gain the power to innovate what’s next.
