Electrical Engineering

Integral to Society

Electrical and electronic components, devices and equipment are integrated into a wide range of products and technologies, from biomedical systems to the smart power grid, and electrical engineers make that happen. Students in Wentworth’s Electrical Engineering program study, model, analyze and design the systems that society relies on. Through our hands-on approach, students gain the theoretical foundation, problem-solving skills and laboratory exposure to successfully design, build and test their projects.

Success by Design

Electrical engineering students at Wentworth gain experience solving and simulating engineering problems through the extensive use of computers, control devices, equipment and systems. After learning the essential theories and developing key problem-solving and laboratory skills, you’ll design, build and test an advanced engineering project in your senior year.

Upon graduation you will be well-prepared for a career in fields such as analog and digital systems, acoustics, biomedical devices, computers, electric vehicle supplies, robotics, communication and control systems, sources of alternative energy, power distribution and smart grids.

Accreditation

The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Learn more about Electrical Engineering at Wentworth.
