Electrical Engineering

A professor demonstrates on classroom equipment to a small group of students pursuing an electrical engineering degree.

Interested in an electrical engineering degree? 

Students on electrical engineering career paths explore the analysis and synthesis of electrical and electronic circuits and devices, signal processing, control of systems, and the design and analysis of modern electrical systems. Students pursuing an electrical engineering degree can choose to further focus their studies with a concentration in biomedical engineering. 

Research in electrical and computer engineering at MSU focuses on robotics and control, biomedical engineering, micro/nano electronics, materials and devices, electromagnetics, energy and power systems, and computer architecture and embedded systems. 


Graduates with an electrical engineering degree have a solid foundation on which to build successful and sustainable careers in the ever-changing global work environment. They are prepared for a variety of career paths, including engineering positions directly after program completion, entry to engineering graduate school and other professional graduate-level schools, and eventual leadership in technical, organizational and entrepreneurial arenas.
