Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
Electrical engineers are problem-solvers, finding optimal solutions to improve standards of living and workplace productivity. Analytically minded standouts in math, science and physics are strong candidates for careers in the field. Electrical engineering incorporates designing, developing, testing and supervising the manufacturing of electrical equipment such as electric motors, radar and navigation systems, communications systems, or power generation equipment.
At Alvernia, students majoring in engineering are being trained to be fundamentally sound and application-ready. Students can choose to major in electrical, industrial or mechanical engineering. Alvernia’s engineering programs feature a design-forward curriculum. In each of their first two years, engineering majors work in teams to complete a real-world design project mentored by an industry partner or research faculty. Third-year students may participate in a semester- or summer-long industry internship or research experience. Fourth-year students work in interdisciplinary teams to complete a year-long capstone, a real-world project with an industry partner.
The John R. Post School of Engineering houses new labs for undergraduate learning, containing millions of dollars of hands-on, real-world equipment and a continuously expanding maker space. Faculty-taught courses feature small class sizes with athlete-friendly scheduling. Regularly scheduled lunch-and-learn presentations feature local industry members looking for summer interns and full-time employees and research faculty presenting their innovative work.
