Why Choose Electrical Engineering?

Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of electrical equipment from the smallest internal components of a cell phone to the largest power grids and communication satellites, and everything in between like electric motors, radar and navigation systems, and controls that operate the flaps of an airplane wing and self-driving automobiles.

Our electrical engineering program, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org,  emphasizes application of theoretical concepts toward practical engineering design and development. Our state-of-the-art instrumentation and equipment encourage a hands-on approach to problem solving. Areas of emphasis include electronics and communications, computer, control, and power and energy engineering.

At UW-Platteville, electrical engineering graduates are industry-ready creative thinkers who apply their analytical and technical skills to address design, sales, and management challenges at leading global corporations in communications, technology, power manufacturing, and more.
