Department of Electrical Engineering

Dr. Hassan El-Kishky, Interim Chair

Electrical Engineering prepares individuals to use science, math, computers, and modern technology together with well-developed critical thinking and problem-solving skills to analyze, design, construct, and maintain products and services related to electrical and electronic devices and systems. Some areas in which an electrical engineer may specialize are computers, communication systems, control systems, signal processing, microelectronics, and electrical power systems. Electrical engineers work in design, development, research, testing, manufacturing, and sales. With experience, many electrical engineers also serve as managers of large engineering projects, executives in major corporations, or as owners of their own companies. Whether developing and designing computers; space vehicle guidance, navigation, and control systems; satellite, optical and wireless communication systems; advanced medical diagnostic equipment and precision surgical tools; or large electric power systems, an electrical engineer has varied and growing opportunities for a challenging and rewarding career in today’s high tech world.

The Department of Electrical Engineering offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering. The baccalaureate degree program can be completed through study in Tyler or at the Houston Engineering Center in Houston, TX.

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