Electrical Engineering Frequently Asked Questions
What is the field of electrical engineering?
From control systems and digital systems to electrodynamics, magnetics and semiconductors, electrical engineering focuses on harnessing the power of electricity. The field of electrical engineering has a number of specialized categories – power generation and transmission systems, motors, batteries and control systems.
What does an electrical engineer do?
Electrical engineers design, test and develop control systems and digital systems that involve electrodynamics, magnetics and semiconductors. Electrical engineers also apply their knowledge to solve real-world problems dealing with electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. Electrical engineers are increasingly relying on computer-aided design (CAD) systems to create schematics and lay out circuits. They also use computers to simulate how electrical devices and systems will function.
What makes Florida Polytechnic University’s Electrical Engineering degree program unique?
Students who major in Electrical Engineering at Florida Poly study and learn in the classroom, but also apply their knowledge to solve real-world problems dealing with electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. This hands-on experience ranges from team-based challenges in simulated environments to internship opportunities with industry leaders who are University partners.
What is the outlook for electrical engineering degree graduates?
Graduates with a degree in electrical engineering from Florida Poly will be prepared to start their career in electrical engineering with minimal on-the-job training.
