Technically speaking, Electrical Engineering (ELEG) is the branch of engineering science that studies the uses of electricity and the equipment for power generation and distribution and the control of machines and communication. In English, that means that Electrical Engineers do everything! With a degree in electrical engineering, you could work in many different fields, including biomedicine, communications, and the defense industry.
The UARK EE program provides invaluable educational experiences in many different ways. Study abroad programs allow students to expand their education through programs in India, Iceland, France, Italy, and many other countries. Student organizations such as IEEE, Eta Kappa Nu, and Arkansas Robotics Club encourage support and community. Through our Integrated Electrical Engineering Education Experience (I4E) undergraduates have the opportunity to work with leading research professors in state-of-the-art laboratories. And in a two-semester capstone project, students use everything they learn in the EE program in a collaborative project with real-world industry partners.
Graduates from the University of Arkansas's EE program have gone on to work for Sprint, Boeing, Intel, Texas Instruments, and Northrop-Grumman. With a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Arkansas, you really can do anything!
