Electrical Engineering

The Electrical Engineering (EE) degree blends traditional and cutting-edge topics. Students learn analog and digital circuits, signal processing, communications, and controls systems. Advanced courses include power systems, audio and image processing, nanotechnology, and embedded systems. The EE degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org


EE Degree
  • EE Requirements: Students receive a rigorous education through a set of core courses, technical electives, capstone design project, and liberal arts courses.
  • ECE Courses: A comprehensive set of core areas and specialized topics in electrical and computer engineering.
  • EE Advising Forms:Students work closely with their faculty adviser to formulate and implement a successful plan of study.

Teaching Excellence
  • Our focus solely on undergraduate education, small classes, and close faculty-student interaction are all hallmarks of the EE curriculum at Union.
  • All courses and laboratories are taught by Union College faculty members, and many classes have fewer than 20 students.

Successful Careers
  • Combined with the depth, breadth and flexibility of our liberal arts curriculum, the EE major is a powerful field of study producing graduates who are highly attractive to employers. EE majors are well-prepared for highly successful careers in engineering as well as professions such as medicine, law, and business administration.
