Electrical Engineering Bachelor's

Program Description

The undergraduate electrical engineering program at Mines caters to various industries, including electric power and energy, renewable energy, aerospace, communications, robotics and diverse industries that rely on embedded intelligence to manage data and systems. Students graduate with relevant and cutting edge technical knowledge through the core courses and very well-designed specialized electives in the areas of energy systems and power electronics, antennas and wireless communications, information and systems sciences and integrated circuits and electronics. Undergraduate students in the department have the opportunity to participate in research projects along with graduate students and the faculty.

Program Focus

At the undergraduate level, the department focuses on a select number of subareas in electrical engineering; specifically,

  1. Energy systems and power electronics (ESPE)
  2. Integrated circuits, computer engineering and electronic systems (ICE)
  3. Information and systems sciences (ISS)
  4. Antennas and wireless communications (AWC)

Both undergraduate and graduate programs are characterized by strong ties with industrial partners (locally and nationally) that provide resources for students, laboratories, research projects, and ultimately career paths for our students.
