Electrical Engineering

Trains students to apply skills to situations that require the distribution of electrical signals from one point to another.

Students receive hands-on training in electrical engineering as they learn to think critically and actively solve problems.

The ability of engineers to harness the power of electricity has significantly improved the quality of life and technological capabilities of this world. It will undoubtedly continue to be a crucial component of our development for the future. As a result, electrical engineering is consistently rated as one of the most in-demand and well-compensated career fields worldwide.

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering Program will attain a reputation for integrity and expertise in the technical workforce by demonstrating problem-solving skills, professionalism, and ethical conduct through their endeavors in engineering practice or other related pursuits. They will also demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and make meaningful contributions as members of engineering or other problem-solving teams, and demonstrate an awareness, appreciation, and ability to engage in life-long learning and service to society.

Electrical Engineering

The curriculum will include courses in:

  • Electric Circuit Theory
  • Logic Design
  • Electronics
  • Microprocessors
  • Electromagnetic Theory
  • Signals and Systems
  • Control Systems
  • Energy and Power
  • Senior Design

Research opportunities add to the learning experience. At Mississippi College, even undergrads get to participate in real-life field research — making them the envy of their peers at larger institutions. In summer 2011, a research team composed of students and faculty members took part in a 6-week field study of cloud-to-ground and intra-cloud lightning in the area surrounding Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.

Electrical Engineering

In your coursework, you will be educated and trained in these types of signals:

  • wireless communication signals that send conversations from one cell phone to another
  • high voltage signals that transfer energy from power plants to homes and businesses
  • analog signals that send the output of an electric guitar to an amplifier
  • digital logic signals that send data to memory storage elements in computers
  • Essentially, any task that involves using electricity to deliver power, transfer information, or control the operation of a device or system can require the expertise of an electrical engineer.
