Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineers use the controlled application of electricity to solve problems in areas ranging from tiny consumer electronic devices, medical equipment, and computers to automobiles and the massive power-generating apparatus used by utility companies.
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering at Lawrence Tech offers three optional areas of technical concentration: Computer Engineering, Electronics Engineering, and Power Engineering.

Upon receiving my degree, I was immediately ready to enter the work force. During the interview process, I was able to talk about the team projects and practical experiences I received at Lawrence Tech.

Participation in the senior-year capstone course also allows you to gain real-world, hands-on experience. Recently, seniors have designed an award-winning hybrid electric car, a thermal monitoring system for the Detroit Zoo’s Reptile House, a photosensitive robot, and a breath analyzer/vehicle disabler interface.
The electrical engineering program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. It includes a core of electrical engineering courses and a wide range of technical electives. The senior capstone project spans two semesters and includes the design, construction, and testing of an electrical engineering project.

**The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering offers three optional areas of technical concentration:
1. Computer Engineering
2. Electronics Engineering
3. Power Engineering

An intention to complete one of these concentrations should be officially declared upon reaching junior status; the required application form can be obtained from the LTU's One-Stop Center. Please consult your assigned academic advisor for further information. 

**A list of electrical and computer engineering technical electives is available from the Department of Electrical ad Computer Engineering, room E217.

Dual majors will be permitted a number of substitutions as approved by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering consistent with accreditation requirements.

Internships + Co-Ops

True to Lawrence Tech’s unique blend of theory and practice, Electrical Engineering students are encouraged to take part in internships or cooperative education (co-op). This opportunity provides hands-on, practical engineering experience that is a distinct advantage when approaching future employers.

Check out some of our peep’s had to say about their experiences with Internships and Co-Ops.

The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
